To avoid the reverse engineering of script apps, numerous developers encrypt their code with tools such as ionCube PHP Encoder in order to make it human unreadable. The latter is valid for paid apps in particular, because anybody could possibly use and modify the unencrypted code without paying the necessary license fees. In case you obtain web software protected with ionCube PHP Encoder, you'll be able to use it without a problem as long as an instrument named ionCube Loader is available on the web hosting server. This loader makes it possible to run encoded files and you will often find it as one of the prerequisites for a particular script application to be set up. Since the encrypted files are already precompiled, they are usually executed much faster and this will raise the general speed of your website.

IonCube in Shared Hosting

IonCube Loader is provided with all of the shared hosting plans that we offer, so if you need it in order to set up and run some script app which needs it, you can enable it with a click in the Advanced area of the Hepsia Control Panel. Because you're able to switch the PHP version which is active for your account from the same section, you'll have to activate the tool for every new version which you set. In case you are more skillful, you will be able to take advantage of 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 will be able to run both new and older script applications for multiple websites within the same account - a thing that you won't be able to do with many other website hosting providers available on the market.

Each semi-dedicated server account that's created on our cutting-edge cloud website hosting platform has ionCube Loader support, so you will be able to set up any kind of script application which needs the tool.

Your change takes effect right away, which means that you will be able to proceed and set up the necessary script in your account. If you decide to switch the PHP version that's active for the account, you will need to enable ionCube for the new version as well. Our in-house made platform also allows you to have a different PHP release for each domain or subdomain, which is done with a php.ini file in every domain folder. In the same way, you are able to enable/disable ionCube Loader for each site hosted in your semi-dedicated account.
