To avoid the reverse engineering of script applications, a number of developers encrypt their program code with instruments like ionCube PHP Encoder to make it human unreadable. The aforementioned is valid for paid apps in particular, because anyone would be able to use and change the unprotected code without having to pay the needed license fees. In case you obtain web software encoded with ionCube PHP Encoder, you'll be able to use it without any problems as long as a tool known as ionCube Loader is installed on the website hosting server. This loader enables you to run encrypted files and you'll often find it on the list of prerequisites for a given script app to be installed. Since the encrypted files are already precompiled, they're normally executed more rapidly and this can boost the overall speed of your website.
IonCube in Shared Hosting
IonCube Loader is provided with all of the shared hosting plans that we provide, so every time you need it in order to install and execute a script application that requires it, you can activate it with a click in the Advanced area of your Hepsia Control Panel. As you are able to switch the PHP release that's active for your account in the same section, you need to enable the instrument for any new version which you set. When you are more experienced, you can employ 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 can operate both new and older script applications for multiple sites inside the same account - a thing that you will not be able to do with a lot of other web hosting service providers on the market.
IonCube in Semi-dedicated Servers
Each and every semi-dedicated server account that is set up on our modern cloud website hosting platform includes ionCube Loader support, and you'll be able to set up any kind of script app which needs the tool. Then employ it in order to start and maintain your online presence. You can enable ionCube from the PHP Configuration area of your Control Panel and it'll take you no more than a couple of clicks to do that. Your change will take effect immediately, so you can go ahead and install the necessary script in your account. If you would like switch the PHP version which is active for your account, you will need to enable ionCube for the new version too. Our tailor-made platform also allows you to have a different PHP release for each and every domain or subdomain, that is done with a php.ini file in each domain folder. In the same way, you'll be able to enable/disable ionCube Loader for each individual website hosted in your semi-dedicated account.
