In order to prevent the reverse engineering of script applications, a number of developers encrypt their code with instruments such as ionCube PHP Encoder in order to make it human unreadable. The latter is valid for paid apps in particular, as anyone could possibly use and change the unencrypted code without having to pay the needed license fees. When you get web software encrypted with ionCube PHP Encoder, you can use it without a problem as long as a tool named ionCube Loader is installed on the hosting server. This loader makes it possible to run encoded files and you will often notice it on the list of prerequisites for a certain script application to be set up. As the encoded files are already precompiled, they are generally executed more rapidly and this can increase the overall speed of your website.

IonCube in Cloud Website Hosting

IonCube Loader is available with all of the cloud website hosting plans which we provide, so any time you require it in order to install and execute some script app that requires it, you can activate it with a click inside the Advanced area of your Hepsia Control Panel. Because you can switch the PHP version that is active for your account in the same section, you need to enable the instrument for each new version that you set. When you are more skillful, you will be able to take advantage of 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 this particular site only, without affecting the entire account. Thus you will be able to run both new and older script applications for multiple sites in the same account - a thing that you cannot do with a lot of other website hosting providers available on the market.

IonCube in Semi-dedicated Servers

Due to the fact that all semi-dedicated server accounts are set up on our advanced cluster platform and ionCube Loader is available on it, you will be able to use any script application which needs the software tool so as to run effectively. With several clicks in your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel you can activate or deactivate ionCube for the PHP version that is currently active for your account. Since we support multiple versions of PHP simultaneously, you will have to do this any time you move to a different version, and if you revert back to a release which you've already used, our system will remember your choice and ionCube Loader will already be activated. If you have multiple websites inside the same account and they need different releases of PHP, you'll be able to create a php.ini file in every single domain folder and with several lines of code you'll be able to define both the PHP version plus the status of ionCube irrespective of what is selected for the hosting account as a whole.
