In order to stop the reverse engineering of script apps, a lot of developers encode their program code with tools like ionCube PHP Encoder to make it human unreadable. The latter is valid for paid applications in particular, as anyone would be able to use and change the unencrypted code without having to pay the needed license fees. When you buy web software encrypted with ionCube PHP Encoder, you'll be able to use it without any problems as long as a software instrument known as ionCube Loader is available on the hosting server. This loader allows you to run encrypted files and you will often notice it as one of the prerequisites for a given script application to be installed. Since the encrypted files are already precompiled, they're usually executed a lot faster and this will boost the overall speed of your site.
IonCube in Shared Website Hosting
IonCube Loader is provided with all of the shared website hosting packages which we provide, so if you require it in order to install and execute some script application that needs it, you can activate it with a click from the Advanced section of your Hepsia Control Panel. As you are able to switch the PHP version that's active for your account in the same section, you will need to activate the instrument for every new version that you set. If you are more experienced, you can 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. In this way you can operate both new and older script apps for multiple sites within the same account - something that you won't be able to do with a lot of other web hosting suppliers out there.
IonCube in Semi-dedicated Hosting
In case you get a semi-dedicated server plan from us, you will be able to employ any kind of script-driven app that requires ionCube Loader since the tool is installed on all of the servers that are a part of our advanced cloud website hosting platform. In addition, we support various releases of PHP, which means that if you switch from PHP 4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4, 5.5, 5.6, 7.0, 7.1, 7.2, 7.3, 7.4, 8.0, 8.1, 8.2, for instance, you can enable ionCube for that particular version with just a click in your Hepsia Control Panel. Our platform will remember your choice, and if you switch back to the previous release of PHP, the software instrument will already be active. For more tech-savvy users, we also provide the option to pick the PHP version and if ionCube will be active or not for a specific domain without altering the settings for the entire web hosting account. This is done by placing a php.ini file in a domain folder with several lines of program code.
