To prevent the reverse engineering of script applications, numerous developers encrypt their program code with tools such as ionCube PHP Encoder in order to make it human unreadable. The latter is valid for paid applications in particular, since anybody would be able to use and change the unprotected code without paying the needed license fees. If you buy web software encoded with ionCube PHP Encoder, you'll be able to use it without a problem as long as a tool called ionCube Loader is a part of the hosting server. This loader allows you to execute encrypted files and you'll often find it among the prerequisites for a particular script app to be set up. Because the encoded files are already precompiled, they're normally executed more rapidly and this will boost the general speed of your site.

IonCube in Hosting

IonCube Loader is provided with all of the hosting packages which we provide, so any time you need it to set up and execute a script app which requires it, you can activate it with a single click inside the Advanced section of the Hepsia Control Panel. Due to the fact that you can switch the PHP version which is active for your account in the same section, you'll need to enable the instrument for each new version which you set. If you are more skillful, you are able to take advantage of a php.ini file in a domain or subdomain folder and set the PHP version and the status of ionCube Loader for this particular site only, without affecting the entire account. This way you're able to operate both new and older script applications for multiple sites within the same account - a thing that you won't be able to do with a lot of other hosting service providers out there.

Our in-house built platform also allows you to have a different PHP version for each domain or subdomain, which is done with a php.ini file in every domain folder. In the same way, you are able to enable/disable ionCube Loader for each website hosted in your semi-dedicated account.
