In order to stop the reverse engineering of script apps, a lot of developers encode their code with instruments like ionCube PHP Encoder and make it human unreadable. The aforementioned is valid for paid applications in particular, because anybody would be able to use and modify the unprotected code without having to pay the needed license fees. If you obtain web software encrypted with ionCube PHP Encoder, you'll be able to use it without any problems as long as a tool known as ionCube Loader is present on the hosting server. This loader makes it possible to run encrypted files and you will often find it on the list of prerequisites for a particular script application to be set up. Due to the fact that the encoded files are already precompiled, they're usually executed faster and this can improve the overall speed of your site.
IonCube in Cloud Hosting
IonCube Loader comes with all cloud hosting packages that we provide, so when you need it in order to set up and run some script app which needs it, you can enable it with a click inside the Advanced section of the Hepsia Control Panel. Since you can change the PHP version which is active for your account from the same section, you will have to enable the instrument for any 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 and the status of ionCube Loader for this particular website only, without affecting the whole account. Thus you can run both new and older script applications for multiple sites inside the same account - something that you can't do with numerous other web hosting providers on the market.
IonCube in Semi-dedicated Servers
IonCube Loader is provided with all the semi-dedicated servers that we offer, so you will not encounter any problems in case you would like to install and work with a script app that requires the software instrument so as to function properly. Activating it is as easy as clicking a single button inside the Advanced area of the Hepsia Control Panel that comes with all the semi-dedicated accounts and the change shall take effect in a minute, which means that you will be able to move forward with the app set up without delay. Due to the fact that we employ an avant-garde custom-made platform and we support multiple versions of PHP simultaneously, you will need to activate ionCube every time you switch to a version that you haven't used before. Additionally, you have the option to activate ionCube loader or even to set a PHP release 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 a couple of lines of code in it.
