To stop the reverse engineering of script applications, a lot of developers encode their program code with tools like ionCube PHP Encoder to make it human unreadable. The aforementioned is valid for paid applications in particular, as anybody would be able to use and change the unprotected code without having to pay the required license fees. In case you obtain web software encoded with ionCube PHP Encoder, you can use it without a problem as long as a software instrument known as ionCube Loader is present on the hosting server. This loader makes it possible to run encrypted files and you'll often find it as one of the prerequisites for a certain script app to be installed. Since the encrypted files are already precompiled, they are ordinarily executed a lot quicker and this can raise the general speed of your website.

IonCube in Cloud Web Hosting

IonCube Loader is provided with all the cloud web hosting plans which we supply, so every time you require it to install and run a script app which needs it, you can activate it with a single click in the Advanced section of your Hepsia Control Panel. Because you are able to switch the PHP version that is active for your account from the same section, you'll need to activate the instrument for each new version that you set. In case you are more experienced, you'll be 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 that particular site only, without affecting the whole account. Thus you will be able to run both new and older script applications for multiple sites inside the same account - a thing that you can't do with various other web hosting providers on the market.

IonCube in Semi-dedicated Hosting

In case you obtain a semi-dedicated server package from our company, you will be able to employ any script-driven application which requires ionCube Loader for the reason that the tool is installed on all of the servers which are part of our cutting-edge cloud hosting platform. In addition, we support various versions of PHP, and if you move from PHP 4 to 5.2 or 5.3, for instance, you can activate ionCube for this particular version with just a click in your Hepsia Control Panel. Our system will remember your decision, and in case you move back to the earlier version of PHP, the software tool will already be active. For more tech-savvy users, we also offer the option to choose the PHP version and whether ionCube will be active or not for a particular domain name without altering the settings for the entire website hosting account. This is done by putting a php.ini file inside a domain folder with several lines of code.
