In order to avoid the reverse engineering of script applications, a number of developers encrypt their code with tools such as ionCube PHP Encoder to make it human unreadable. The aforementioned is valid for paid applications in particular, since anyone would be able to use and change the unencrypted code without having to pay the required license fees. If you buy web software encrypted with ionCube PHP Encoder, you can use it without any problems as long as a software instrument called ionCube Loader is installed on the hosting server. This loader makes it possible to execute encoded files and you will often notice it as one of the prerequisites for a given script app to be installed. As the encrypted files are already precompiled, they're usually executed a lot quicker and this will boost the general speed of your website.

IonCube in Cloud Hosting

IonCube Loader is provided with all the cloud hosting plans that we offer, so any time you require it to install and execute a script application that needs it, you can activate it with a single click inside the Advanced section of the Hepsia Control Panel. As you're able to change the PHP release that is active for your account from the same section, you'll have to enable the instrument for each new version which you set. In case you are more skillful, you'll be able to employ a php.ini file in a domain or subdomain folder and set the PHP version and the status of ionCube Loader for this particular site only, without affecting the entire account. Thus you're able to run both new and older script apps for multiple websites in the same account - a thing that you cannot do with a lot of other website hosting suppliers available on the market.

IonCube in Semi-dedicated Servers

Due to the fact that all semi-dedicated server accounts are set up on our advanced cluster platform and ionCube Loader is available on it, you shall be able to use any script app which needs this tool in order to function efficiently. With just a few clicks in the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel you can activate or deactivate ionCube for the PHP version that's currently active for your account. Since we support multiple releases of PHP concurrently, you will have to do this each time you switch to a new version, but when you revert back to a release that you've already used, our system will remember your preference and ionCube Loader will already be activated. When you have several websites inside the same account and they require different releases of PHP, you will be able to create a php.ini file in each and every domain folder and with a couple of lines of program code you are able to define both the PHP release as well as the status of ionCube regardless of what is selected for the hosting account as a whole.
