In order to stop the reverse engineering of script applications, numerous developers encrypt their code with tools like ionCube PHP Encoder in order to make it human unreadable. The latter is valid for paid applications in particular, as anyone would be able to use and change the unencrypted code without having to pay the needed license fees. When you get web software encrypted with ionCube PHP Encoder, you will be able to use it without a problem as long as a software instrument known as ionCube Loader is present on the web hosting server. This loader enables you to run encoded files and you'll often find it as one of the prerequisites for a given script app to be installed. Since the encrypted files are already precompiled, they're generally executed much faster and this can increase the overall speed of your site.

IonCube in Web Hosting

IonCube Loader is available with all web hosting packages that we offer, so if you need it to install and run some script app which needs it, you can enable it with a click from the Advanced section of the Hepsia Control Panel. Due to the fact that you'll be able to change the PHP version that's active for your account in the same section, you'll have to activate the instrument for any new version which you set. When you're more skillful, you'll be able to employ a php.ini file in a domain or subdomain folder and set both the PHP version and the status of ionCube Loader for this particular website only, without affecting the whole account. This way you'll be able to run both new and older script apps for multiple websites inside the same account - a thing that you will not be able to do with many other website hosting providers available on the market.

IonCube in Semi-dedicated Servers

Because all semi-dedicated server accounts are set up on our advanced cluster platform and ionCube Loader is available on it, you will be able to use any script app which requires this tool to run effectively. With several clicks in the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel you're able to activate or deactivate ionCube for the PHP version which is currently active for your account. Since we support several versions of PHP simultaneously, you'll need to do that each time you switch to a new version, but when you revert back to a version which you've already used, our system will remember your preference and ionCube Loader will already be active. If you have a couple of websites inside the same account and they need different versions of PHP, you're able to set up a php.ini file in each and every domain folder and with several lines of program code you'll be able to define both the PHP version as well as the status of ionCube no matter what is selected for the web hosting account altogether.
