In order to avoid the reverse engineering of script applications, a lot of developers encode their code with tools such as ionCube PHP Encoder and make it human unreadable. This is valid for paid applications in particular, because anyone would be able to use and change the unencrypted code without paying the necessary license fees. If you buy web software encrypted with ionCube PHP Encoder, you can use it without any problems as long as a software tool known as ionCube Loader is installed on the website hosting server. This loader enables you to run encoded files and you'll often see it on the list of prerequisites for a given script application to be installed. Since the encoded files are already precompiled, they are usually executed faster and this will enhance the overall speed of your site.

IonCube in Cloud Web Hosting

IonCube Loader is provided with all the cloud web hosting plans that we supply, so any time you need it to install and run a script app that needs it, you can activate it with a click in the Advanced area 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 need to activate the instrument for every new version which you set. In case you are more experienced, you're able to take advantage of a php.ini file in a domain or subdomain folder and set both the PHP version as well as the status of ionCube Loader for that particular website only, without affecting the whole account. Thus you'll be able to run both new and older script apps for multiple websites within the same account - something that you cannot do with a lot of other web hosting service providers available on the market.

IonCube in Semi-dedicated Hosting

IonCube Loader is available with all the semi-dedicated hosting services that we provide, so you will not have any kind of problems if you would like to install and use a script application which requires the instrument to function properly. Activating it is as simple as clicking a button in the Advanced area of the Hepsia Control Panel which comes with all the semi-dedicated accounts and the change will take effect in a minute, so you can proceed with the app installation without any delays. Due to the fact that we use a revolutionary tailor-made platform and we support several versions of PHP at the same time, you'll need to activate ionCube any time you switch to a version that you haven't used before. You will also have the option to enable ionCube loader or even to set a PHP version different from the one in the account as a whole by creating a php.ini file in an individual domain or subdomain folder and adding a few lines of code in it.
