In order to prevent the reverse engineering of script apps, a lot of developers encrypt their code with instruments such as ionCube PHP Encoder to make it human unreadable. The latter is valid for paid apps in particular, since anybody would be able to use and change the unencrypted code without paying the required license fees. When you purchase web software protected with ionCube PHP Encoder, you will be able to use it without a problem as long as a software tool named ionCube Loader is a part of the hosting server. This loader enables you to run encrypted files and you'll often find it as one of the prerequisites for a particular script application to be set up. Since the encrypted files are already precompiled, they are usually executed a lot faster and this will improve the overall speed of your website.
IonCube in Cloud Website Hosting
IonCube Loader comes with all the cloud website hosting packages that we provide, so any time you need it in order to install and execute some script application that needs it, you can activate it with a click in the Advanced section of your Hepsia Control Panel. As you're able to switch the PHP version which is active for your account from the same section, you'll need to enable the instrument for every new version which you set. If you are more skillful, you can 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 that particular site only, without affecting the entire account. This way you are able to manage both new and older script apps for multiple websites inside the same account - a thing that you will not be able to do with lots of other web hosting suppliers out there.
IonCube in Semi-dedicated Servers
IonCube Loader is available with all Linux semi-dedicated servers that we offer, so you will not experience any problems if you would like to install and work with a script application which requires the software instrument in order to function properly. Enabling it is as easy as clicking a single button in the Advanced part of the Hepsia Control Panel that comes with all the semi-dedicated accounts and the change shall take effect in a minute, so you're able to proceed with the app set up without any delays. Since we use an avant-garde custom-made platform and we support a number of versions of PHP at the same time, you will have to activate ionCube any time you switch to a version that you have not used before. In addition, you'll have the option to activate ionCube loader or even to set a PHP version 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 few lines of program code inside it.
