To prevent the reverse engineering of script apps, many developers encode their program code with tools such as ionCube PHP Encoder in order to make it human unreadable. This is valid for paid applications in particular, since anyone would be able to use and change the unencrypted code without paying the required license fees. If you purchase web software encoded with ionCube PHP Encoder, you'll be able to use it without a problem as long as a tool named ionCube Loader is available on the web hosting server. This loader enables you to run encoded files and you'll often find it among the prerequisites for a certain script application to be set up. Because the encoded files are already precompiled, they're usually executed a lot quicker and this will improve the overall speed of your website.

IonCube in Shared Hosting

IonCube Loader is provided with all the shared hosting plans that we supply, so every time you need it to set up and execute a script app that requires it, you can enable it with a single click inside the Advanced area of the Hepsia Control Panel. Because you're able to change the PHP version that's active for your account in the same section, you will have to activate the tool for every new version that you set. In case you are more experienced, you'll be able to use 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. Thus you'll be able to manage both new and older script apps for multiple websites inside the same account - a thing that you won't be able to do with many other web hosting suppliers on the market.

IonCube in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Each and every semi-dedicated server account that's set up on our modern cloud website hosting platform comes with ionCube Loader support, so you'll be able to install any script app which needs the tool. Then employ it in order to launch and maintain your internet presence. You can enable ionCube from the PHP Configuration area of your Control Panel and it will take you no more than a few clicks to do that. Your change takes effect immediately, which means that you will be able to go ahead and set up the needed script inside your account. If you would like change the PHP version that is active for your account, you will have to activate ionCube for the new version as well. Our custom-made platform also allows you to have a different PHP release for each domain or subdomain, which is done with a php.ini file in every domain folder. In the same way, you are able to enable/disable ionCube Loader for each individual website hosted in your semi-dedicated account.
