To prevent the reverse engineering of script apps, a lot of developers encrypt their program code with instruments like ionCube PHP Encoder to make it human unreadable. This is valid for paid apps in particular, because anyone could possibly use and modify the unprotected code without having to pay the required license fees. In case you obtain web software encrypted with ionCube PHP Encoder, you'll be able to use it without any problems as long as a software tool named ionCube Loader is installed on the website hosting server. This loader makes it possible to run encoded files and you will often find it on the list of prerequisites for a given script application to be installed. Due to the fact that the encrypted files are already precompiled, they're generally executed a lot quicker and this will enhance the general speed of your website.

IonCube in Semi-dedicated Hosting

As 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 so as to work properly. With a couple of clicks in the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel you are able to activate or deactivate ionCube for the PHP version that's currently active for your account. As we support multiple releases of PHP concurrently, you'll have to do this each and every time you switch to a new release, and if you revert back to a release which you've already used, our system will remember your choice and ionCube Loader will already be active. If you have a couple of websites in the same account and they require different versions of PHP, you'll be able to create a php.ini file in every single domain folder and with a couple of lines of program code you're able to define both the PHP version as well as the status of ionCube irrespective of what is selected for the hosting account as a whole.
