In order to prevent the reverse engineering of script apps, numerous developers encrypt their program code with tools such as ionCube PHP Encoder to make it human unreadable. The latter is valid for paid applications in particular, because anybody could possibly use and modify the unencrypted code without paying the necessary license fees. If you get web software encoded with ionCube PHP Encoder, you will be able to use it without any problems as long as a software instrument called ionCube Loader is present on the website hosting server. This loader enables you to run encoded files and you will often find it as one of the prerequisites for a particular script app to be installed. Since the encoded files are already precompiled, they are generally executed more quickly and this can improve the overall speed of your site.

IonCube in Shared Web Hosting

IonCube Loader is available with all shared web hosting packages which we supply, so when you need it in order to install and run some script application that requires it, you can activate it with a single click inside the Advanced section of your Hepsia Control Panel. Since you are able to switch the PHP release which is active for your account in the same section, you'll have to activate the tool for every new version which you set. If you are more skillful, you are able to use 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 whole account. In this way you will be able to run both new and older script applications for multiple sites within the same account - a thing that you can't do with many other web hosting suppliers available on the market.

Our custom-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 will be able to enable/disable ionCube Loader for each individual website hosted in your semi-dedicated account.
