In order to avoid the reverse engineering of script applications, numerous developers encode their code with tools such as ionCube PHP Encoder and make it human unreadable. The aforementioned is valid for paid applications in particular, since anybody could possibly use and modify the unprotected code without paying the necessary license fees. If you get web software encoded with ionCube PHP Encoder, you can use it without any problems as long as a tool called ionCube Loader is available on the hosting server. This loader allows you to run encoded files and you'll often see it as one of the prerequisites for a certain script app to be set up. Because the encrypted files are already precompiled, they are ordinarily executed much faster and this can boost the overall speed of your website.

IonCube in Shared Hosting

IonCube Loader comes with all the shared hosting packages that we offer, so every time you require it in order to set up and execute some script app which needs it, you can activate it with a click inside the Advanced section of your Hepsia Control Panel. Because you are able to change the PHP version that's active for your account in the same section, you'll need to enable the tool for each new version which you set. If you are more experienced, you're able to 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. This way you will be able to operate both new and older script applications for multiple sites in the same account - something that you can't do with various other hosting suppliers available on the market.

IonCube in Semi-dedicated Servers

IonCube Loader is available with all semi-dedicated hosting plans that we offer, which means that you won't encounter any kind of problems if you would like to set up and use some script app that requires the instrument to operate properly. Activating it is as easy as clicking a single button in the Advanced part of the Hepsia Control Panel which comes with all of the semi-dedicated accounts and the change will take effect in less than a minute, therefore you will be able to move forward with the application set up without delay. Since we employ a revolutionary in-house built platform and we support many different versions of PHP at the same time, you will have to activate ionCube any time you switch to a version that you have not used before. You will also have the option to activate ionCube loader and even to set a PHP version different from the one in the account as a whole by generating a php.ini file in a separate domain or subdomain folder and adding a few lines of program code within it.
