To prevent the reverse engineering of script applications, a number of developers encrypt their program code with instruments like ionCube PHP Encoder to make it human unreadable. The aforementioned is valid for paid apps in particular, as anyone could possibly use and modify the unencrypted code without paying the required license fees. In case you acquire web software protected with ionCube PHP Encoder, you can use it without any problems as long as a software instrument named ionCube Loader is installed on the hosting server. This loader allows you to run encoded files and you'll often notice it on the list of prerequisites for a given script app to be set up. As the encrypted files are already precompiled, they're ordinarily executed a lot faster and this will raise the overall speed of your site.

IonCube in Shared Website Hosting

IonCube Loader comes with all the shared website hosting plans that we supply, so any time you require it to set up and execute some script application which requires it, you can enable it with a single click inside the Advanced area of your Hepsia Control Panel. Due to the fact that you can switch the PHP version that's active for your account in the same section, you will need to enable the tool for every new version that you set. If you are more skillful, you're able to use 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 site only, without affecting the whole account. This way you can operate both new and older script apps for multiple websites in the same account - something that you won't be able to do with many other website hosting service providers out there.

IonCube in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Due to the fact that all the semi-dedicated server accounts are created on our advanced cluster platform and ionCube Loader is available on it, you'll be able to use any script app that needs this tool to function effectively. With just a few clicks in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel you are able to activate or deactivate ionCube for the PHP version that's currently active for the account. Since we support a couple of releases of PHP simultaneously, you'll have to do this each time you switch to a new version, but when you revert back to a release which you have already used, our system will remember your choice and ionCube Loader will already be active. In case you have multiple sites inside the same account and they require different releases of PHP, you're able to create 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 and the status of ionCube irrespective of what is selected for the web hosting account as a whole.
