In order to stop the reverse engineering of script applications, a number of developers encode their code with instruments such as ionCube PHP Encoder and make it human unreadable. This is valid for paid apps in particular, since anybody would be able to use and change the unprotected code without paying the necessary license fees. If you buy web software protected with ionCube PHP Encoder, you can use it without any problems as long as a software tool named ionCube Loader is a part of the website hosting server. This loader allows you to run encoded files and you will often find it on the list of prerequisites for a given script application to be set up. Because the encoded files are already precompiled, they are ordinarily executed a lot quicker and this can enhance the overall speed of your website.
IonCube in Website Hosting
IonCube Loader comes with all the website hosting packages that we provide, so when you require it in order to set up and execute some script application that requires it, you can enable it with a click in the Advanced section of the Hepsia Control Panel. Due to the fact that you are able to change the PHP version which is active for your account in the same section, you will need to enable the tool for each new version which you set. In case you are more skillful, you are 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 website only, without affecting the entire account. In this way you are able to manage both new and older script applications for multiple sites within the same account - a thing that you won't be able to do with numerous other web hosting service providers available on the market.
IonCube in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you get a semi-dedicated server plan from us, you will be able to take advantage of any script-driven application that requires ionCube Loader because the software tool is installed on all the servers which are part of our revolutionary cloud hosting platform. We also support multiple releases of PHP, and if you switch from PHP 4 to 5.2 or 5.3, for instance, you can enable ionCube for this particular release with only a click from your Hepsia Control Panel. Our system will remember your decision, so if you move back to the previous version of PHP, the software instrument will already be active. For more tech-savvy users, we also offer the option to pick the PHP version and whether ionCube will be active or not for a particular domain name without altering the settings for the whole hosting account. This is done by placing a php.ini file within a domain folder with several lines of code.
