In order to avoid the reverse engineering of script apps, numerous developers encrypt their program code with tools such as ionCube PHP Encoder and make it human unreadable. The latter is valid for paid apps in particular, because anybody would be able to use and change the unprotected code without paying the required license fees. In case you buy web software encoded with ionCube PHP Encoder, you can use it without any problems as long as a software instrument known as ionCube Loader is installed on the web hosting server. This loader makes it possible to run encoded files and you'll often see it as one of the prerequisites for a particular script application to be set up. As the encoded files are already precompiled, they're generally executed a lot faster and this can increase the overall speed of your website.

IonCube in Shared Hosting

IonCube Loader comes with all shared hosting plans which we offer, so when you require it to set up and run some script app which requires it, you can enable it with a single click from the Advanced section of your Hepsia Control Panel. Because you are able to change the PHP version which is active for your account from the same section, you need to enable the instrument for any new version that you set. When you are more experienced, you are 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 site only, without affecting the entire account. Thus you'll be able to run both new and older script apps for multiple websites inside the same account - something that you cannot do with a lot of other hosting suppliers on the market.

IonCube in Semi-dedicated Hosting

IonCube Loader is provided with all the Linux semi-dedicated hosting that we provide, which means that you won't have any problems if you'd like to set up and use a script application that requires the instrument to function properly. Activating it is as easy as clicking a single button inside the Advanced area of the Hepsia Control Panel which comes with all of the semi-dedicated accounts and the change will take effect in a minute, which means that you'll be able to move forward with the app set up without delay. Due to the fact that we employ an innovative custom-built platform and we support multiple versions of PHP simultaneously, you will have to activate ionCube every time you switch to a version that you haven't used before. In addition, you'll have the option to enable ionCube loader and even to set a PHP version different from the one in the account as a whole by making a php.ini file in an individual domain or subdomain folder and adding a few lines of program code inside it.
