In order to stop the reverse engineering of script apps, numerous developers encrypt their program code with instruments like ionCube PHP Encoder in order to make it human unreadable. The aforementioned is valid for paid apps in particular, since anyone would be able to use and modify the unencrypted code without paying the necessary license fees. When you obtain web software protected with ionCube PHP Encoder, you can use it without a problem as long as a software instrument named ionCube Loader is a part of the website hosting server. This loader allows you to execute encoded files and you will often notice it on the list of prerequisites for a particular script application to be set up. As the encrypted files are already precompiled, they are ordinarily executed a lot quicker and this will improve the general speed of your site.

IonCube in Website Hosting

IonCube Loader is provided with all the website hosting packages which we supply, so if you need it to set up and run a script application that requires it, you can activate it with a click inside the Advanced section of the Hepsia Control Panel. Because you can change the PHP release which is active for your account from the same section, you will need to activate the tool for any new version that you set. When you're more experienced, you can take advantage of 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. In this way you will be able to manage both new and older script apps for multiple sites inside the same account - a thing that you cannot do with many other web hosting providers on the market.

IonCube in Semi-dedicated Servers

Due to the fact that all the 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 application which requires this software tool in order to work properly.

As we support multiple releases of PHP concurrently, you will need to do that each time you switch to a different version, and if you revert back to a version that you've already used, our system will remember your preference and ionCube Loader will already be active. In case you have multiple sites in the same account and they need different releases of PHP, you are able to set up a php.ini file in each domain folder and with a couple of lines of program code you'll be able to define both the PHP version plus the status of ionCube regardless of what is selected for the hosting account as a whole.
