In order to prevent the reverse engineering of script applications, a lot of developers encrypt their program code with tools such as ionCube PHP Encoder to make it human unreadable. This is valid for paid apps in particular, as anyone would be able to use and change the unprotected code without having to pay the required license fees. If you buy web software protected with ionCube PHP Encoder, you can use it without any problems as long as a software tool named ionCube Loader is a part of the hosting server. This loader enables you to execute encrypted files and you will often see it among the prerequisites for a given script application to be set up. Because the encrypted files are already precompiled, they are generally executed a lot faster and this will increase the general speed of your website.
IonCube in Shared Website Hosting
IonCube Loader comes with all shared website hosting packages that we offer, so any time you need it to set up and execute some script app which requires it, you can enable it with a click in the Advanced area of the Hepsia Control Panel. As you can change the PHP version that is active for your account from the same section, you need to activate the tool for each new version which you set. In case you are more skillful, you are able to employ a php.ini file in a domain or subdomain folder and set the PHP version and the status of ionCube Loader for that particular website only, without affecting the entire account. This way you can 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 various other web hosting suppliers out there.
IonCube in Semi-dedicated Hosting
In case you aquire a semi-dedicated server package from our company, you can use any kind of script-driven app that needs ionCube Loader since the software tool is installed on all the servers which are a part of our innovative cloud website hosting platform. Furthermore, we support different releases of PHP, therefore if you switch from PHP 4 to 5.2 or 5.3, for example, you can enable ionCube for this particular version with just a click from your Hepsia Control Panel. Our platform will remember your choice, and if you switch back to the previous version of PHP, the software tool will already be active. For more experienced users, we also offer the option to choose the PHP version and whether ionCube will be active or not for a specific domain without altering the settings for the entire website hosting account. This can be done by putting a php.ini file within a domain folder with a couple of lines of program code.
