What is IonCube? Precisely how does IonCube work and when do you really need it for your PHP apps?
In order to stop the reverse engineering of script apps, numerous developers encode their code with tools like ionCube PHP Encoder and make it human unreadable. This 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. In case you acquire web software protected with ionCube PHP Encoder, you can use it without a problem as long as a tool known as ionCube Loader is a part of the web hosting server. This loader makes it possible to execute encoded files and you will often see it among the prerequisites for a particular script application to be installed. As the encoded files are already precompiled, they are normally executed more rapidly and this can boost the general speed of your site.
IonCube in Website Hosting
IonCube Loader is available with all of the website hosting
packages that we provide, so when you require it in order to set up and execute some script application that needs it, you can activate it with a single click from the Advanced area of the Hepsia Control Panel. Since you are able to change the PHP release that's active for your account from the same section, you will have to enable the instrument for every new version that you set. When you are more experienced, you'll be able to take advantage of 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 that particular site only, without affecting the entire account. In this way you'll be able to manage both new and older script apps for multiple sites inside the same account - a thing that you won't be able to do with numerous other website hosting providers out there.
IonCube in Semi-dedicated Servers
Due to the fact that all 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 which requires the tool so as to function efficiently. With just a few clicks in your Hepsia 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 versions of PHP at the same time, you will have to do that any time you switch to a new release, and when you revert back to a version that you've already used, our system will remember your choice and ionCube Loader will already be activated. When you have multiple websites in the same account and they need different releases of PHP, you are able to create a php.ini file in each and every domain folder and with a couple of lines of code you'll be able to define both the PHP release plus the status of ionCube irrespective of what is selected for the website hosting account altogether.
