In order to stop the reverse engineering of script apps, numerous developers encode their program code with instruments such as ionCube PHP Encoder to make it human unreadable. The latter is valid for paid apps in particular, since anybody could possibly use and change the unprotected code without paying the necessary license fees. When you acquire web software encrypted with ionCube PHP Encoder, you will be able to use it without a problem as long as a software tool named ionCube Loader is available on the hosting server. This loader enables you to execute encoded files and you will often notice it on the list of prerequisites for a given script application to be installed. Since the encrypted files are already precompiled, they're generally executed a lot quicker and this will increase the general speed of your site.

We also support various releases of PHP, and if you switch from PHP 4 to 5.2 or 5.3, for instance, you can activate ionCube for this particular release with only a click from your Hepsia Control Panel. Our platform will remember your choice, and in case you switch back to the earlier version of PHP, the instrument will already be active. For more experienced users, we also offer the option to pick the PHP version and whether ionCube will be active or not for a particular domain without altering the settings for the whole hosting account. This can be done by placing a php.ini file in a domain folder with a few lines of code.
