To stop the reverse engineering of script apps, a lot of developers encrypt their code with tools such as ionCube PHP Encoder and make it human unreadable. The aforementioned is valid for paid apps in particular, as anyone could possibly use and modify the unencrypted code without having to pay the needed license fees. If you obtain web software protected with ionCube PHP Encoder, you will be able to use it without a problem as long as a software tool known as ionCube Loader is available on the web hosting server. This loader enables you to run encrypted files and you will often find it on the list of prerequisites for a certain script application to be set up. As the encoded files are already precompiled, they're normally executed a lot faster and this will improve the overall speed of your site.

IonCube in Cloud Web Hosting

IonCube Loader is provided with all cloud web hosting plans which we provide, 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 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 in the same section, you will have to enable the tool for every new version which you set. If you are more experienced, you can use a php.ini file in a domain or subdomain folder and set both the PHP version as well as the status of ionCube Loader for that particular website only, without affecting the entire account. Thus you will be able to operate both new and older script apps for multiple websites within the same account - a thing that you can't do with many other web hosting service providers out there.

IonCube in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you buy a semi-dedicated server package from us, you'll be able to employ any kind of script-driven app which needs ionCube Loader for the reason that the software tool is available on all of the servers which are part of our cutting-edge cloud web hosting platform. In addition, we support different versions of PHP, and if you switch from PHP 4 to 5.2 or 5.3, for example, you can enable ionCube for that particular version with only a click in your Hepsia Control Panel. Our platform will remember your decision, and in case you switch back to the earlier release of PHP, the software tool will already be active. For more experienced users, we also provide the option to choose the PHP version and if ionCube will be active or not for a particular domain name without altering the settings for the whole hosting account. This can be done by placing a php.ini file inside a domain folder with several lines of program code.
