In order to avoid the reverse engineering of script apps, numerous developers encrypt their program code with instruments such as ionCube PHP Encoder in order to make it human unreadable. This is valid for paid apps in particular, as anyone could possibly use and modify the unprotected code without having to pay the necessary license fees. When you get web software protected with ionCube PHP Encoder, you'll be able to use it without any problems as long as a tool named ionCube Loader is a part of the website hosting server. This loader enables you to run encrypted files and you'll often find it on the list of prerequisites for a certain script app to be installed. Because the encoded files are already precompiled, they are normally executed more rapidly and this can raise the overall speed of your website.

IonCube in Cloud Hosting

IonCube Loader comes with all of the cloud hosting packages that we provide, so when you need it in order to install and run some script app which requires it, you can activate it with a single click in the Advanced area of the Hepsia Control Panel. As you are able to change the PHP version that's active for your account from the same section, you'll need to activate the tool for each new version which you set. If you're more experienced, you will be able to use 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 site only, without affecting the entire account. Thus you are able to run both new and older script apps for multiple websites inside the same account - something that you will not be able to do with a lot of other website hosting providers on the market.

IonCube in Semi-dedicated Servers

IonCube Loader is provided with all the Linux semi-dedicated servers that we supply, so you will not have any kind of problems in case you would like to install and use some script application which requires the instrument to function appropriately. Activating it is as easy as clicking a button inside the Advanced section of the Hepsia Control Panel that comes with all of the semi-dedicated accounts and the change will take effect in less than a minute, which means that you are able to proceed with the app installation without delay. As we employ an avant-garde custom-built platform and we support a number of versions of PHP simultaneously, you'll need to enable ionCube every time you move to a version that you have not used before. Additionally, you have the option to enable ionCube loader or even to set a PHP release different from the one in the account as a whole by creating a php.ini file in a separate domain or subdomain folder and adding a couple of lines of code within it.
