In order to avoid the reverse engineering of script applications, a lot of developers encode their program code with instruments such as ionCube PHP Encoder in order to make it human unreadable. The aforementioned is valid for paid apps in particular, because anyone would be able to use and change the unencrypted code without having to pay the needed license fees. In case you buy web software encoded with ionCube PHP Encoder, you can use it without a problem as long as a software tool named ionCube Loader is a part of the web hosting server. This loader enables you to execute encoded files and you will often see it as one of the prerequisites for a certain script application to be installed. As the encrypted files are already precompiled, they're normally executed faster and this can improve the overall speed of your site.
IonCube in Website Hosting
IonCube Loader is provided with all the website hosting packages that we supply, so any time you need it in order to install and execute some script application that requires it, you can enable it with a single click in the Advanced area of the Hepsia Control Panel. Because you can change the PHP version which is active for your account from the same section, you need to activate the instrument for each new version which you set. When you are more experienced, you'll be able to take advantage of a php.ini file in a domain or subdomain folder and set both the PHP version and the status of ionCube Loader for that particular website only, without affecting the entire account. In this way you are able to manage both new and older script apps for multiple websites in the same account - a thing that you can't do with numerous other web hosting service providers on the market.
IonCube in Semi-dedicated Hosting
IonCube Loader is provided with all of the Linux semi-dedicated packages that we supply, so you will not encounter any kind of problems if you would like to set up and work with some script application which requires the software instrument to operate appropriately. Enabling it is as easy as clicking a single button in the Advanced section 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'll be able to proceed with the app set up without delay. Since we employ a hi-tech custom platform and we support multiple versions of PHP at the same time, you will need to enable ionCube every time you switch to a version that you have not used before. Additionally, you have the option to enable 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 an individual domain or subdomain folder and adding a few lines of program code inside it.
