To stop the reverse engineering of script apps, many developers encrypt their program code with instruments such as ionCube PHP Encoder in order to make it human unreadable. The latter is valid for paid apps in particular, because anyone could possibly use and change the unencrypted code without paying the necessary license fees. If you obtain web software encrypted with ionCube PHP Encoder, you'll be able to use it without a problem as long as a software tool named ionCube Loader is present on the web hosting server. This loader makes it possible to execute encoded files and you'll often see it among the prerequisites for a certain script app to be installed. Due to the fact that the encrypted files are already precompiled, they are generally executed faster and this can enhance the overall speed of your website.
IonCube in Shared Website Hosting
IonCube Loader comes with all of the shared website hosting plans that we provide, so every time you need it to set up and execute a script app which needs it, you can enable it with a single click in the Advanced area of your Hepsia Control Panel. Because you are able to switch the PHP version that is active for your account in the same section, you'll have to enable the instrument for any new version which you set. When you are more skillful, 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 that particular website only, without affecting the whole account. This way you can manage both new and older script applications for multiple sites in the same account - something that you will not be able to do with many other web hosting providers available on the market.
IonCube in Semi-dedicated Servers
Each and every semi-dedicated server account that's set up on our outstanding cloud web hosting platform features ionCube Loader support, so you'll be able to set up any script application that needs the software tool. Then employ it in order to start and maintain your web presence. You can activate ionCube from the PHP Configuration area of the Control Panel and it will take you just a few clicks to do this. Your change takes effect immediately, so you're able to go ahead and install the necessary script inside your account. If you decide to change the PHP version that's active for the account, you should enable ionCube for the new version too. Our in-house built platform also allows you to have a different PHP version for each and every domain or subdomain, which is done with a php.ini file in every domain folder. In the same way, you'll be able to enable/disable ionCube Loader for each site hosted in your semi-dedicated account.
