To stop the reverse engineering of script apps, a number of developers encode their code with instruments like ionCube PHP Encoder in order to make it human unreadable. The latter is valid for paid applications in particular, as anyone could possibly use and modify the unencrypted code without paying the necessary license fees. When you buy web software encrypted with ionCube PHP Encoder, you'll be able to use it without a problem as long as a software instrument called ionCube Loader is available on the hosting server. This loader enables you to run encoded files and you will often notice it on the list of prerequisites for a certain script app to be set up. Because the encrypted files are already precompiled, they are generally executed more quickly and this will boost the overall speed of your site.

IonCube in Cloud Web Hosting

IonCube Loader comes with all the cloud web hosting packages that we offer, so when you require it in order to install and run some script application which needs it, you can activate it with a single click from the Advanced section of the Hepsia Control Panel. Because you'll be able to switch the PHP release which is active for your account in the same section, you will need to activate the tool for every new version that you set. When you're 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 site only, without affecting the entire account. This way you're able to manage both new and older script applications for multiple websites in the same account - a thing that you cannot do with numerous other hosting service providers on the market.

IonCube in Semi-dedicated Servers

IonCube Loader is available with all Linux semi-dedicated servers that we supply, so you won't encounter any problems in case you would like to set up and work with a script application that requires the software tool in order to operate properly. Activating it is as simple as clicking a button in the Advanced part of the Hepsia Control Panel that comes with all of the semi-dedicated accounts and the change shall take effect in a minute, which means that you will be able to proceed with the application set up without delay. For the reason that we use an avant-garde in-house built platform and we support many different versions of PHP simultaneously, you will need to enable ionCube any time you move 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 release different from the one in the account as a whole by making a php.ini file in a separate domain or subdomain folder and adding several lines of code within it.
