To avoid the reverse engineering of script apps, a lot of developers encrypt their program code with tools like ionCube PHP Encoder to make it human unreadable. This is valid for paid applications in particular, since anybody would be able to use and modify the unencrypted code without having to pay the necessary license fees. If you buy web software encrypted with ionCube PHP Encoder, you will be able to use it without a problem as long as a tool named ionCube Loader is installed on the hosting server. This loader enables you to run encrypted files and you will often see it among the prerequisites for a given script app to be installed. Because the encrypted files are already precompiled, they're usually executed a lot faster and this will increase the general speed of your website.
IonCube in Shared Hosting
IonCube Loader is provided with all shared hosting packages which we supply, so any time you require it to install and run some script app that needs it, you can enable it with a single click inside the Advanced section of your Hepsia Control Panel. Since you are able to switch the PHP release that is active for your account in the same section, you will have to enable the tool for each new version that you set. When you're 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 this particular website only, without affecting the entire account. Thus you can operate both new and older script applications for multiple sites within the same account - a thing that you can't do with various other hosting suppliers on the market.
IonCube in Semi-dedicated Servers
Because all of the 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 the tool in order to function properly. With a couple of clicks in your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel you will be able to activate or deactivate ionCube for the PHP version which is currently active for your account. Because we support several releases of PHP simultaneously, you'll have to do this each and every time you switch to a new release, but if you revert back to a release that you've already used, our system will remember your choice and ionCube Loader will already be active. In case you have multiple sites inside the same account and they need different releases of PHP, you can create a php.ini file in each domain folder and with several lines of program code you are able to define both the PHP version and the status of ionCube irrespective of what is selected for the website hosting account as a whole.
