To stop the reverse engineering of script apps, a lot of developers encrypt their program code with tools such as ionCube PHP Encoder and make it human unreadable. The latter is valid for paid applications in particular, because anybody could possibly use and change the unprotected code without having to pay the needed license fees. When you purchase web software encoded with ionCube PHP Encoder, you will be able to use it without any problems as long as a software instrument named ionCube Loader is available on the hosting server. This loader makes it possible to run encrypted files and you'll often find it on the list of prerequisites for a certain script app to be installed. As the encoded files are already precompiled, they're ordinarily executed a lot quicker and this can increase the overall speed of your website.

IonCube in Shared Web Hosting

IonCube Loader is available with all shared web hosting plans which we provide, so every time you need it in order to set up and execute a script application which requires it, you can enable it with a click inside the Advanced area of your Hepsia Control Panel. Due to the fact that you're able to change the PHP version which is active for your account in the same section, you need to activate the tool for each new version that you set. If you're more skillful, you can use a php.ini file in a domain or subdomain folder and set both the PHP version and the status of ionCube Loader for this particular website only, without affecting the whole account. Thus you're able to manage both new and older script applications for multiple websites within the same account - a thing that you can't do with lots of other web hosting service providers available on the market.

IonCube in Semi-dedicated Servers

Due to the fact that all of the semi-dedicated server accounts are set up on our advanced cluster platform and ionCube Loader is available on it, you'll be able to use any script app which requires this tool to function effectively. With a couple of clicks in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel you are able to activate or deactivate ionCube for the PHP version that is currently active for your account. Because we support multiple versions of PHP at the same time, you will have to do that each time you switch to a different release, and if 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 multiple sites inside the same account and they require different versions of PHP, you're able to create a php.ini file in every single domain folder and with several lines of code you are able to define both the PHP version plus the status of ionCube no matter what is selected for the website hosting account as a whole.
