In order to avoid the reverse engineering of script apps, numerous developers encode their program code with instruments such as ionCube PHP Encoder to make it human unreadable. This is valid for paid applications in particular, since anyone would be able to use and modify the unprotected code without paying the required license fees. If you purchase web software encrypted with ionCube PHP Encoder, you can use it without a problem as long as a software instrument named ionCube Loader is installed on the hosting server. This loader allows you to execute encoded files and you'll often find it among the prerequisites for a certain script application to be installed. Since the encoded files are already precompiled, they're generally executed a lot faster and this can raise the general speed of your site.

IonCube in Shared Hosting

IonCube Loader is available with all shared hosting plans which we offer, so any time you need it to install and execute a script app that requires it, you can enable it with a single click in the Advanced section of the Hepsia Control Panel. Since you'll be able to change the PHP version which is active for your account from the same section, you will have to enable the instrument for each new version which you set. When you are more experienced, you're able to use 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 whole account. This way you're able to run both new and older script apps for multiple sites within the same account - something that you won't be able to do with a lot of other hosting suppliers out there.

IonCube in Semi-dedicated Servers

Because all of the semi-dedicated server accounts are set up on our advanced cluster platform and ionCube Loader is available on it, you'll be able to use any script app which requires this tool so as to run properly. With a couple of clicks in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel you will be able to activate or deactivate ionCube for the PHP version that is currently active for your account. Because we support several versions of PHP simultaneously, you will need to do this every time you move to a different version, but when you revert back to a version which you've already used, our system will remember your preference and ionCube Loader will already be activated. If you have several sites inside the same account and they require different releases of PHP, you'll be able to create a php.ini file in each and every domain folder and with a couple of lines of code you are able to define both the PHP release plus the status of ionCube irrespective of what is selected for the hosting account as a whole.
