To avoid the reverse engineering of script apps, many developers encode their code with instruments like ionCube PHP Encoder and make it human unreadable. The aforementioned is valid for paid applications in particular, because anyone could possibly use and change the unencrypted code without paying the needed license fees. In case you buy web software protected with ionCube PHP Encoder, you can use it without any problems as long as a tool known as ionCube Loader is available on the website hosting server. This loader makes it possible to run encrypted files and you'll often find it among the prerequisites for a given script app to be installed. As the encrypted files are already precompiled, they're normally executed quicker and this will improve the overall speed of your website.

IonCube in Hosting

IonCube Loader is provided with all hosting plans which we provide, so any time you need it to set up and execute a script app which needs it, you can enable it with a click in the Advanced area of your Hepsia Control Panel. Due to the fact that you'll be able to switch the PHP release that is active for your account from the same section, you will have to activate the instrument for each new version that you set. When you're more experienced, you will be able to use a php.ini file in a domain or subdomain folder and set the PHP version as well as the status of ionCube Loader for that particular website only, without affecting the entire account. In this way you'll be able to manage both new and older script applications for multiple websites inside the same account - a thing that you won't be able to do with various other web hosting providers out there.

IonCube in Semi-dedicated Servers

IonCube Loader is provided with all the semi-dedicated servers that we supply, and you won't encounter any problems if you would like to set up and work with a script application that requires the software instrument to operate appropriately. Enabling it is as simple as clicking a single button in the Advanced area of the Hepsia Control Panel that comes with all of the semi-dedicated accounts and the change will take effect in less than a minute, so you're able to move forward with the application installation without delay. For the reason that we employ an innovative in-house made platform and we support a number of versions of PHP simultaneously, you will have to activate ionCube every time you switch to a version that you haven't used before. In addition, you'll have the option to activate ionCube loader and even to set a PHP release different from the one in the account as a whole by generating a php.ini file in a separate domain or subdomain folder and adding a couple of lines of program code within it.
