In order to prevent the reverse engineering of script apps, a lot of developers encrypt their program code with instruments like ionCube PHP Encoder and make it human unreadable. The aforementioned is valid for paid applications in particular, because anybody would be able to use and change the unencrypted code without paying the needed license fees. In case you buy web software protected with ionCube PHP Encoder, you can use it without a problem as long as a tool known as ionCube Loader is installed on the website hosting server. This loader enables you to execute encoded files and you'll often notice it on the list of prerequisites for a given script application to be set up. Because the encrypted files are already precompiled, they're ordinarily executed faster and this can enhance the overall speed of your website.

IonCube in Shared Web Hosting

IonCube Loader is available with all shared web hosting plans which we offer, so if you need it in order to set up and run some script app that requires it, you can enable it with a click from the Advanced section of the Hepsia Control Panel. Because you're able to change the PHP version that is active for your account from the same section, you will have to activate the instrument for every new version which you set. If you are more experienced, you'll be able to use a php.ini file in a domain or subdomain folder and set both the PHP version as well as the status of ionCube Loader for this particular site only, without affecting the entire account. In this way you are able to manage both new and older script applications for multiple websites in the same account - a thing that you will not be able to do with various other website hosting providers available on the market.

IonCube in Semi-dedicated Servers

Every single semi-dedicated server account which is generated on our modern cloud website hosting platform has ionCube Loader support, which means that you can install any kind of script app which needs the software tool. Then use it to start and maintain your online presence. You can enable ionCube through the PHP Configuration section of your Control Panel and it'll take you only a few clicks to do that. The change takes effect immediately, which means that you'll be able to go ahead and install the necessary script inside your account. If you'd like to change the PHP version that's active for your account, you'll need to activate ionCube for the new release too. Our tailor-made platform also allows you to have a different PHP version for each domain or subdomain, which is done with a php.ini file in every domain folder. In the same way, you will be able to enable/disable ionCube Loader for each individual site hosted in your semi-dedicated account.
