To avoid the reverse engineering of script apps, many developers encode their code with tools such as ionCube PHP Encoder in order to make it human unreadable. The latter is valid for paid applications in particular, since anybody could possibly use and change the unencrypted code without having to pay the required license fees. When you purchase web software encrypted with ionCube PHP Encoder, you can use it without any problems as long as an instrument known as ionCube Loader is available on the hosting server. This loader makes it possible to execute encoded files and you'll often find it on the list of prerequisites for a particular script app to be installed. As the encoded files are already precompiled, they are normally executed much faster and this can raise the general speed of your website.

IonCube in Semi-dedicated Servers

IonCube Loader is available with all of the semi-dedicated hosting plans that we supply, and you will not experience any kind of problems if you'd like to install and work with a script app that requires the software instrument to operate appropriately. Enabling it is as easy as clicking a single button in the Advanced area of the Hepsia Control Panel that comes with all the semi-dedicated accounts and the change shall take effect in a minute, so you're able to proceed with the application set up without any delays. Due to the fact that we employ a hi-tech tailor-made platform and we support multiple versions of PHP at the same time, you will have to activate ionCube every time you switch to a version that you haven't used before. Additionally, you have the option to enable ionCube loader and even to set a PHP version different from the one in the account as a whole by creating a php.ini file in a separate domain or subdomain folder and adding several lines of code in it.
