To prevent the reverse engineering of script apps, many developers encrypt their code with tools like ionCube PHP Encoder to make it human unreadable. The latter is valid for paid apps in particular, as anyone could possibly use and change the unprotected code without having to pay the needed license fees. In case you buy web software encrypted with ionCube PHP Encoder, you can use it without any problems as long as a software tool named ionCube Loader is available on the website hosting server. This loader makes it possible to execute encrypted files and you'll often find it as one of the prerequisites for a particular script application to be installed. Because the encoded files are already precompiled, they're normally executed more quickly and this can boost the general speed of your website.

IonCube in Cloud Hosting

IonCube Loader comes with all cloud hosting plans which we supply, so any time you need it to install and run some script app which needs it, you can enable it with a single click from the Advanced section of your Hepsia Control Panel. Since you'll be able to change the PHP release that's active for your account in the same section, you'll need to enable the instrument for every new version that you set. When you're more skillful, you're able to employ a php.ini file in a domain or subdomain folder and set the PHP version and the status of ionCube Loader for that particular site only, without affecting the whole account. Thus you're able to run both new and older script apps for multiple sites in the same account - something that you cannot do with many other web hosting suppliers available on the market.

IonCube in Semi-dedicated Servers

Because all semi-dedicated server accounts are created on our advanced cluster platform and ionCube Loader is available on it, you will be able to use any script app that needs this tool so as to function properly. With just a few clicks in the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel you'll be able to activate or deactivate ionCube for the PHP version that's currently active for the account. Because we support a couple of releases of PHP simultaneously, you'll have to do this each time you switch to a different release, but when you revert back to a release which you've already used, our system will remember your preference and ionCube Loader will already be activated. If you have a couple of sites in the same account and they need different versions of PHP, you will be able to create a php.ini file in each domain folder and with several lines of program code you can define both the PHP release and the status of ionCube irrespective of what is selected for the web hosting account altogether.
