In order to prevent the reverse engineering of script apps, a lot of developers encrypt their code with instruments like ionCube PHP Encoder in order to make it human unreadable. This is valid for paid applications in particular, since anyone could possibly use and modify the unencrypted code without paying the necessary license fees. When you acquire web software encrypted with ionCube PHP Encoder, you can use it without a problem as long as a software instrument known as ionCube Loader is a part of the web hosting server. This loader allows you to run encoded files and you'll often notice it as one of the prerequisites for a certain script application to be set up. Because the encrypted files are already precompiled, they are generally executed a lot faster and this can enhance the overall speed of your website.
IonCube in Shared Hosting
IonCube Loader is provided with all the shared hosting plans which we provide, so any time you require it to set up and run some script application which needs it, you can activate it with a click in the Advanced section of the Hepsia Control Panel. Due to the fact that you can switch the PHP release that is active for your account in the same section, you will have to activate the tool for any new version that you set. If you are more experienced, you will be able to employ 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 entire account. This way you are able to manage both new and older script apps for multiple sites within the same account - a thing that you can't do with many other website hosting suppliers out there.
IonCube in Semi-dedicated Servers
Since all 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 that needs the tool in order to run properly. With a couple of clicks in your 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. Because we support a couple of releases of PHP simultaneously, you'll need to do that each time you switch to a new version, but if you revert back to a release that you have already used, our system will remember your choice and ionCube Loader will already be active. In case you have multiple websites inside the same account and they need different versions of PHP, you will be able to set up a php.ini file in each domain folder and with several lines of program code you're able to define both the PHP version plus the status of ionCube regardless of what is selected for the website hosting account as a whole.
