To avoid the reverse engineering of script applications, a lot of developers encrypt their code with instruments like ionCube PHP Encoder to make it human unreadable. The latter is valid for paid applications in particular, since anybody could possibly use and modify the unencrypted code without having to pay the required license fees. If you purchase web software encrypted with ionCube PHP Encoder, you'll be able to use it without any problems as long as a tool named ionCube Loader is present on the hosting server. This loader allows you to run encrypted files and you'll often find it on the list of prerequisites for a certain script application to be set up. As the encoded files are already precompiled, they are usually executed more rapidly and this can enhance the general speed of your site.

IonCube in Shared Web Hosting

IonCube Loader is available with all the shared web hosting packages that we offer, so when you need it to install and execute some script application which requires it, you can enable it with a click from the Advanced section of the Hepsia Control Panel. Since you are able to change the PHP version which is active for your account from the same section, you'll need to enable the instrument for each new version which you set. In case you are more experienced, you will 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 that particular site only, without affecting the whole account. This way you'll be able to operate both new and older script applications for multiple sites in the same account - a thing that you can't do with numerous other website hosting providers out there.

IonCube in Semi-dedicated Hosting

IonCube Loader is available with all of the Linux semi-dedicated hosting packages that we supply, and you will not have any problems in case you'd like to set up and use some script application that requires the tool to operate appropriately. Activating it is as easy as clicking a button inside the Advanced section of the Hepsia Control Panel which comes with all of the semi-dedicated accounts and the change shall take effect in a minute, therefore you're able to proceed with the application installation without any delays. For the reason that we employ an avant-garde custom platform and we support multiple versions of PHP simultaneously, you'll need to enable ionCube any time you move to a version that you haven't used before. You will also 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 making a php.ini file in a separate domain or subdomain folder and adding several lines of code within it.
