To avoid the reverse engineering of script apps, a number of developers encode their code with instruments like ionCube PHP Encoder to make it human unreadable. The aforementioned is valid for paid apps in particular, since anybody could possibly use and modify the unprotected code without having to pay the necessary license fees. If you buy web software encoded with ionCube PHP Encoder, you will be able to use it without any problems as long as a software tool named ionCube Loader is available on the website hosting server. This loader makes it possible to run encrypted files and you'll often notice it as one of the prerequisites for a certain script app to be set up. Due to the fact that the encoded files are already precompiled, they are normally executed quicker and this can boost the overall speed of your site.

IonCube in Hosting

IonCube Loader is provided with all the hosting packages which we offer, so when you require it to install and run a script application that needs it, you can enable it with a single click in the Advanced area of the Hepsia Control Panel. As you are able to change the PHP release that's active for your account from the same section, you need to enable the tool for any new version that 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 both the PHP version and the status of ionCube Loader for that particular website only, without affecting the whole account. In this way you can manage both new and older script applications for multiple websites inside the same account - something that you can't do with various other hosting service providers available on the market.

IonCube in Semi-dedicated Servers

IonCube Loader is available with all the semi-dedicated servers that we provide, and you will not experience any problems if you'd like to set up and use some script application which requires the instrument to function appropriately. Enabling it is as simple as clicking a button in the Advanced part of the Hepsia Control Panel that comes with all of the semi-dedicated accounts and the change shall take effect in less than a minute, so you can proceed with the app set up without delay. For the reason that we employ a cutting-edge custom-made platform and we support multiple versions of PHP simultaneously, you'll need to enable ionCube every time you move to a version that you haven't used before. Additionally, you have the option to enable ionCube loader or even to set a PHP release different from the one in the account as a whole by making a php.ini file in a separate domain or subdomain folder and adding several lines of code inside it.
