Plenty of script-driven applications, particularly paid cms, encode their files to make sure that they will not be reverse engineered or tampered with. The majority of them use an application named ionCube PHP Encoder to do this, so, in case you purchase a paid script and you want to install it in a website hosting account, a tool called ionCube Loader has to be present on your server. Without this, you will not be able to install the script or if you somehow find a way to do that, it won't operate properly for the reason that most of the script code will be encoded to a degree where it cannot be interpreted. In this light, you should make sure that ionCube Loader is set up if you get a fresh web hosting account and you'd like to work with some paid web application. If you get a shared website hosting account and the instrument is not present, it cannot be added because the whole server PHP environment shall have to be compiled again.

IonCube in Shared Website Hosting

When you purchase a Linux shared website hosting from us, it will be created on our custom-made cloud hosting platform where ionCube Loader is already present, so you won't have any problems to run any script app which requires the instrument so as to run properly. In addition, we provide a few different releases of PHP, therefore in case you change the version, you'll have to activate ionCube again. Our system remembers the changes you make, and in case you switch back to the earlier version of PHP which was active for your account, ionCube Loader will already be enabled. Both the PHP version and the ionCube instrument can be operated through the PHP Configuration section of our Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Every change that you make takes literally just a single click and it takes effect right away.

IonCube in Semi-dedicated Servers

As all the semi-dedicated server accounts are created on our advanced cluster platform and ionCube Loader is available on it, you shall be able to use any script app which requires the software tool to function effectively. With a couple of clicks in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel you are able to activate or deactivate ionCube for the PHP version that is currently active for the account. Because we support multiple versions of PHP concurrently, you will have to do this every time you switch to a new version, but when you revert back to a release which you have already used, our system will remember your preference and ionCube Loader will already be activated. If you have a couple of sites inside the same account and they require different releases of PHP, you'll be able to set up a php.ini file in every single domain folder and with several lines of program code you'll be able to define both the PHP release and the status of ionCube irrespective of what is selected for the hosting account altogether.
