To prevent the reverse engineering of script apps, many developers encode their program code with tools such as ionCube PHP Encoder to make it human unreadable. The latter is valid for paid applications in particular, as anybody could possibly use and change the unprotected code without paying the required license fees. If you acquire web software encrypted with ionCube PHP Encoder, you can use it without any problems as long as a software tool named ionCube Loader is a part of the web hosting server. This loader makes it possible to run encrypted files and you will often find it on the list of prerequisites for a given script app to be set up. Because the encoded files are already precompiled, they're usually executed much faster and this can enhance the general speed of your website.
IonCube in Web Hosting
IonCube Loader is available with all web hosting packages that we offer, so if you require it to set up and run some script app which needs it, you can enable it with a single click in the Advanced area of the Hepsia Control Panel. As you'll be able to change the PHP version that's active for your account in the same section, you'll have to enable the instrument for each new version which you set. When you are more skillful, you are able to employ a php.ini file in a domain or subdomain folder and set the PHP version as well as the status of ionCube Loader for this particular website only, without affecting the whole account. In this way you're able to manage both new and older script apps for multiple sites in the same account - something that you cannot do with numerous other web hosting suppliers on the market.
IonCube in Semi-dedicated Servers
Due to the fact that all of the semi-dedicated server accounts are created on our advanced cluster platform and ionCube Loader is available on it, you'll be able to use any script application that needs the software tool in order to work effectively. With several clicks in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel you can activate or deactivate ionCube for the PHP version that's currently active for the account. Since we support several versions of PHP at the same time, you will need to do that any time you move to a different version, but when you revert back to a version which you have already used, our system will remember your preference and ionCube Loader will already be active. When you have multiple sites in the same account and they need different versions of PHP, you'll be able to set up a php.ini file in every single domain folder and with a couple of lines of code you will be able to define both the PHP release plus the status of ionCube no matter what is selected for the web hosting account altogether.
