In order to prevent the reverse engineering of script apps, a number of developers encode their program code with instruments like ionCube PHP Encoder and make it human unreadable. The latter is valid for paid apps in particular, because anyone would be able to use and change the unencrypted code without having to pay the necessary license fees. If you purchase web software protected with ionCube PHP Encoder, you will be able to use it without a problem as long as an instrument named ionCube Loader is present on the hosting server. This loader makes it possible to run encoded files and you'll often find it among the prerequisites for a given script app to be set up. Since the encoded files are already precompiled, they are normally executed more rapidly and this can improve the overall speed of your site.
IonCube in Cloud Web Hosting
IonCube Loader comes with all the cloud web hosting plans that we offer, so when you require it to install and run a script app that needs it, you can enable it with a single click inside the Advanced section of the Hepsia Control Panel. Since you'll be able to switch the PHP version that is active for your account in the same section, you need to activate the instrument for every new version that you set. When you are more experienced, you'll be able to use a php.ini file in a domain or subdomain folder and set the PHP version and the status of ionCube Loader for this particular site only, without affecting the entire account. In this way you'll be able to operate both new and older script apps for multiple websites within the same account - a thing that you will not be able to do with a lot of other web hosting providers on the market.
IonCube in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Since 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 which requires this software tool so as to work properly. With several clicks in the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel you'll be able to activate or deactivate ionCube for the PHP version that's currently active for the account. Since we support several releases of PHP simultaneously, you will need to do that each and every time you move to a new release, but if you revert back to a version which you have already used, our system will remember your preference and ionCube Loader will already be active. In case you have multiple websites inside 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 program code you're able to define both the PHP release and the status of ionCube no matter what is selected for the hosting account altogether.
