To avoid the reverse engineering of script applications, many developers encode their code with tools such as ionCube PHP Encoder and make it human unreadable. This is valid for paid apps in particular, since anyone would be able to use and change the unprotected code without paying the required license fees. When you purchase web software encrypted with ionCube PHP Encoder, you will be able to use it without a problem as long as a software tool called ionCube Loader is available on the web hosting server. This loader allows you to run encrypted files and you will often find it among the prerequisites for a certain script application to be installed. Since the encrypted files are already precompiled, they are generally executed much faster and this will raise the overall speed of your website.

IonCube in Website Hosting

IonCube Loader comes with all the website hosting packages which we provide, so when you require it to install and execute a script app which requires it, you can activate it with a single click inside the Advanced area of your Hepsia Control Panel. Since you'll be able to change the PHP release which is active for your account from the same section, you will have to activate the tool for every new version that you set. If you are more skillful, you are able to take advantage of a php.ini file in a domain or subdomain folder and set the PHP version as well as the status of ionCube Loader for this particular website only, without affecting the whole account. In this way you will be able to run both new and older script applications for multiple sites in the same account - a thing that you cannot do with numerous other hosting service providers out there.

IonCube in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you aquire a semi-dedicated server plan from us, you'll be able to use any script-driven application which requires ionCube Loader due to the fact that the tool comes with all of the servers that are a part of our modern cloud hosting platform. We also support several versions of PHP, which means that if you switch from PHP 4 to 5.2 or 5.3, for instance, you can enable ionCube for this particular release with only a click from your Hepsia Control Panel. Our system will remember your decision, so if you move back to the previous version of PHP, the software tool will already be active. For more tech-savvy users, we also provide the option to select the PHP version and if ionCube will be active or not for a specific domain without altering the settings for the whole web hosting account. This is done by placing a php.ini file within a domain folder with several lines of program code.
