In order to stop the reverse engineering of script applications, a lot of developers encrypt their program code with tools such as ionCube PHP Encoder and make it human unreadable. The latter is valid for paid applications in particular, because anyone would be able to use and change the unprotected code without having to pay the necessary license fees. When you buy web software encoded with ionCube PHP Encoder, you'll be able to use it without a problem as long as a software instrument named ionCube Loader is present on the website hosting server. This loader enables you to run encrypted files and you'll often find it among the prerequisites for a given script application to be installed. Because the encrypted files are already precompiled, they're generally executed more quickly and this will improve the overall speed of your site.
IonCube in Website Hosting
IonCube Loader is available with all of the website hosting plans which we offer, so every time you need it in order to set up and execute a script application which requires it, you can activate it with a single click in the Advanced section of the Hepsia Control Panel. Since you can change the PHP version that's active for your account in the same section, you'll have to enable the tool for each new version that you set. If you're more experienced, you'll be able to employ 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'll be able to operate both new and older script apps for multiple websites within the same account - something that you can't do with a lot of other hosting service providers available on the market.
IonCube in Semi-dedicated Servers
Every single semi-dedicated server account that is set up on our outstanding cloud web hosting platform includes ionCube Loader support, so you will be able to install any kind of script app that needs the software tool. Then use it to launch and maintain your internet presence. You can activate ionCube from the PHP Configuration section of the Control Panel and it'll take you only a couple of clicks to do this. Your change will take effect immediately, so you're able to proceed and set up the needed script in your account. If you would like switch the PHP version which is active for your account, you will need to activate ionCube for the new version too. Our custom-made platform also allows you to have a different PHP version for each and every domain or subdomain, that is done with a php.ini file in each domain folder. In the same way, you will be able to enable/disable ionCube Loader for each individual site hosted in your semi-dedicated account.
