To prevent the reverse engineering of script applications, many developers encode their program code with instruments such as ionCube PHP Encoder and make it human unreadable. This is valid for paid applications in particular, as anyone would be able to use and change the unencrypted code without paying the needed license fees. If you acquire web software encrypted with ionCube PHP Encoder, you will be able to use it without a problem as long as a software tool named ionCube Loader is a part of the website hosting server. This loader makes it possible to run encrypted files and you'll often find it among the prerequisites for a particular script application to be installed. Due to the fact that the encoded files are already precompiled, they're usually executed more quickly and this can enhance the overall speed of your website.

IonCube in Shared Website Hosting

IonCube Loader is available with all shared website hosting plans that we supply, so if you need it in order to set up and execute some script app that requires it, you can activate it with a single click from the Advanced section of your Hepsia Control Panel. Since you'll be able to switch the PHP version that's active for your account in the same section, you need to activate the tool for any new version that you set. When you are more experienced, you're able to take advantage of a php.ini file in a domain or subdomain folder and set both the PHP version and the status of ionCube Loader for that particular website only, without affecting the entire account. In this way you're able to run both new and older script applications for multiple websites inside the same account - something that you cannot do with various other web hosting providers available on the market.

IonCube in Semi-dedicated Servers

Because all semi-dedicated server accounts are created on our advanced cluster platform and ionCube Loader is available on it, you shall be able to use any script application which requires the software tool so as to run properly. With just a few clicks in the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel you can activate or deactivate ionCube for the PHP version that is currently active for your account. As we support multiple releases of PHP at the same time, you'll need to do that every time you move to a different release, but when you revert back to a version which you've already used, our system will remember your choice and ionCube Loader will already be active. When you have a couple of websites inside the same account and they require different releases of PHP, you'll be able to create a php.ini file in every single domain folder and with a couple of lines of code you're able to define both the PHP version as well as the status of ionCube irrespective of what is selected for the website hosting account altogether.
