In order to stop 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. This is valid for paid apps in particular, since anyone would be able to use and change the unencrypted code without having to pay the required license fees. If you buy web software encrypted with ionCube PHP Encoder, you will be able to use it without any problems as long as a tool called ionCube Loader is available on the website hosting server. This loader enables you to execute encrypted files and you'll often notice it among the prerequisites for a certain script application to be set up. Since the encrypted files are already precompiled, they are ordinarily executed more quickly and this can boost the overall speed of your website.

IonCube in Shared Website Hosting

IonCube Loader is available with all of the shared website hosting packages that we provide, so if you need it in order to install and run a script app which requires it, you can activate it with a single click from the Advanced section of your Hepsia Control Panel. Because you are able to switch the PHP version which is active for your account in the same section, you need to activate the instrument for each new version which you set. If you are more skillful, you're able to employ a php.ini file in a domain or subdomain folder and set the PHP version and the status of ionCube Loader for that particular site only, without affecting the entire account. In this way you are able to run both new and older script apps for multiple sites within the same account - something that you can't do with numerous other web hosting service providers available on the market.

IonCube in Semi-dedicated Servers

In case you buy a semi-dedicated server plan from our company, you will be able to take advantage of any kind of script-driven application which needs ionCube Loader due to the fact that the tool is available on all of the servers that are a part of our revolutionary cloud website hosting platform. In addition, we support several releases of PHP, therefore if you switch from PHP 4 to 5.2 or 5.3, for example, you can activate ionCube for that particular version with only a click in your Hepsia Control Panel. Our platform will remember your choice, so in case you move back to the previous version of PHP, the instrument will already be active. For more tech-savvy users, we also offer the option to select the PHP version and if ionCube will be active or not for a particular domain without altering the settings for the whole hosting account. This is done by putting a php.ini file in a domain folder with a couple of lines of program code.
