I have a pretty nice suggestion for ionCube's Server Restrictions. I would like to see a restriction based on the server's computer name. This will allow us to easily limit access to the PHP scripts based on the machine name. What do you think?
It could be useful, however there might be problems on shared servers because the host has control of the computer name and the name might change at any time. On dedicated or VPS servers a user has control of the hostname, and so locking to a hostname might be less effective than some other ways.
We've thought about it before and might add it, and as long as a user is aware of the pros and cons to a particular method then they can make a decision based on their situation although we know that not everyone reads the user guide though. _________________ Community Admin
