To prevent the reverse engineering of script apps, numerous developers encode their code with tools like ionCube PHP Encoder in order to make it human unreadable. This is valid for paid apps in particular, as anyone would be able to use and modify the unprotected code without paying the needed license fees. In case you obtain web software encoded with ionCube PHP Encoder, you'll be able to use it without any problems as long as a software instrument named ionCube Loader is present on the website hosting server. This loader makes it possible to run encoded files and you will often find it among the prerequisites for a given script application to be set up. Because the encoded files are already precompiled, they are ordinarily executed more quickly and this will improve the general speed of your site.

IonCube in Shared Hosting

IonCube Loader is provided with all the shared hosting packages that we supply, so when you need it to set up and run a script app which requires it, you can activate it with a click inside the Advanced area of the Hepsia Control Panel. Due to the fact that you're able to switch the PHP version that is active for your account in the same section, you'll need to activate the instrument for any new version that you set. When you are more experienced, you can use a php.ini file in a domain or subdomain folder and set the PHP version as well as the status of ionCube Loader for this particular site only, without affecting the whole account. In this way you'll be able to operate both new and older script applications for multiple sites inside the same account - a thing that you won't be able to do with numerous other hosting suppliers available on the market.

IonCube in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Because all of the semi-dedicated server accounts are set up on our advanced cluster platform and ionCube Loader is available on it, you will be able to use any script application that needs the tool so as to work properly. With a couple of clicks in your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel you are able to activate or deactivate ionCube for the PHP version that's currently active for your account. As we support several versions of PHP concurrently, you'll have to do this each and every time you switch to a different version, and when you revert back to a release which you've already used, our system will remember your preference and ionCube Loader will already be activated. If you have multiple sites inside the same account and they require different versions of PHP, you'll be able to create a php.ini file in every single domain folder and with a couple of lines of code you are able to define both the PHP release plus the status of ionCube no matter what is selected for the website hosting account altogether.
