To avoid the reverse engineering of script applications, a lot of developers encrypt their code with tools like ionCube PHP Encoder in order to make it human unreadable. The latter is valid for paid applications in particular, since anyone would be able to use and modify the unprotected code without paying the required license fees. When you buy web software encoded with ionCube PHP Encoder, you can use it without any problems as long as a software tool named ionCube Loader is installed on the hosting server. This loader enables you to execute encoded files and you will often see it on the list of prerequisites for a particular script app to be set up. As the encoded files are already precompiled, they're ordinarily executed quicker and this can enhance the general speed of your website.

IonCube in Shared Hosting

IonCube Loader is available with all of the shared hosting packages that we supply, so every time you require it in order to install and execute a script application that requires it, you can enable it with a click inside the Advanced section of your Hepsia Control Panel. Due to the fact that you are able to change the PHP version which is active for your account from the same section, you need to enable the instrument for every new version which you set. When you're more experienced, you will be able to take advantage of a php.ini file in a domain or subdomain folder and set the PHP version and the status of ionCube Loader for this particular website only, without affecting the whole account. This way you'll be able to operate both new and older script applications for multiple websites in the same account - a thing that you won't be able to do with various other website hosting suppliers on the market.

IonCube in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Because all 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 so as to work properly. With a couple of clicks in the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel you'll be able to activate or deactivate ionCube for the PHP version that is currently active for the account. As we support a couple of releases of PHP at the same time, you will need to do that each and every time you switch to a new release, and when you revert back to a release which you have already used, our system will remember your choice and ionCube Loader will already be active. If you have multiple websites in the same account and they require different versions of PHP, you will be able to create a php.ini file in every single domain folder and with a couple of lines of program code you're able to define both the PHP release as well as the status of ionCube no matter what is selected for the website hosting account as a whole.
