In order to prevent the reverse engineering of script apps, numerous developers encode their program code with instruments like ionCube PHP Encoder in order to make it human unreadable. The latter is valid for paid apps in particular, since anybody would be able to use and modify the unprotected code without having to pay the required license fees. When you get web software encrypted with ionCube PHP Encoder, you'll be able to use it without a problem as long as an instrument named ionCube Loader is present on the hosting server. This loader allows you to run encoded files and you will often notice it as one of the prerequisites for a particular script application to be installed. Due to the fact that the encoded files are already precompiled, they're usually executed quicker and this will raise the overall speed of your website.

IonCube in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you purchase a semi-dedicated server package from our company, you can use any kind of script-driven app which needs ionCube Loader due to the fact that the tool is installed on all of the servers that are a part of our innovative cloud hosting platform. We also support different releases of PHP, so if you switch from PHP 4 to 5.2 or 5.3, for instance, you can activate ionCube for that particular version with only a click in your Hepsia Control Panel. Our platform will remember your decision, so if you switch back to the previous version of PHP, the software instrument will already be active. For more tech-savvy users, we also provide the option to choose the PHP version and if ionCube will be active or not for a particular domain name without altering the settings for the entire website hosting account. This can be done by placing a php.ini file inside a domain folder with a couple of lines of code.
