To stop the reverse engineering of script applications, a number of developers encode their program code with tools such as ionCube PHP Encoder and make it human unreadable. This is valid for paid applications in particular, since anyone would be able to use and modify the unencrypted code without having to pay the required license fees. When you get web software encrypted with ionCube PHP Encoder, you can use it without a problem as long as an instrument known as ionCube Loader is a part of the hosting server. This loader enables you to execute encrypted files and you'll often notice it on the list of prerequisites for a particular script app to be installed. Due to the fact that the encrypted files are already precompiled, they're usually executed quicker and this can raise the overall speed of your site.
IonCube in Shared Hosting
IonCube Loader comes with all the shared hosting packages which we provide, so any time you require it to set up and run some script app which requires it, you can activate it with a single click from the Advanced area of the Hepsia Control Panel. Because you can change the PHP release that's active for your account from the same section, you need to activate the tool for every new version that you set. If you're more experienced, you can use 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 site only, without affecting the entire account. In this way you'll be able to operate both new and older script applications for multiple websites inside the same account - something that you will not be able to do with numerous other web hosting suppliers out there.
IonCube in Semi-dedicated Servers
In case you buy a semi-dedicated server plan from us, you will be able to employ any script-driven app which requires ionCube Loader for the reason that the tool is available on all the servers which are part of our advanced cloud web hosting platform. Furthermore, we support various versions of PHP, and if you move 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 system will remember your choice, and in case you switch back to the earlier release of PHP, the tool will already be active. For more tech-savvy users, we also provide the option to choose the PHP version and whether ionCube will be active or not for a particular domain name without altering the settings for the entire hosting account. This can be done by placing a php.ini file inside a domain folder with several lines of code.
