To stop the reverse engineering of script apps, a lot of developers encrypt their program code with instruments 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 change the unencrypted code without having to pay the required license fees. If you get web software encrypted with ionCube PHP Encoder, you'll be able to use it without a problem as long as a software instrument called ionCube Loader is installed on the website hosting server. This loader allows you to execute encrypted files and you will often find it as one of the prerequisites for a given script application to be installed. Because the encoded files are already precompiled, they're generally executed a lot quicker and this will increase the overall speed of your website.

IonCube in Shared Hosting

IonCube Loader comes with all the shared hosting plans which we offer, so when you need it in order to set up and execute a script app that needs it, you can activate it with a click inside the Advanced section of the Hepsia Control Panel. Due to the fact that you can change the PHP release that's active for your account from the same section, you will have to enable the instrument for any new version which you set. When you are more skillful, you're able to use a php.ini file in a domain or subdomain folder and set both the PHP version as well as the status of ionCube Loader for this particular site only, without affecting the whole account. Thus you can operate both new and older script apps for multiple sites in the same account - a thing that you will not be able to do with a lot of other web hosting suppliers available on the market.

In the same way, you will be able to enable/disable ionCube Loader for each individual site hosted in your semi-dedicated account.
