Plenty of script-driven applications, particularly paid cms, encode their files to ensure that they will not be reverse engineered or tampered with. Many of them use an application called ionCube PHP Encoder to do this, so if you buy a paid script and you'd like to set it up in a website hosting account, a software instrument called ionCube Loader needs to be present on the server. Without it, you cannot install the script or if you somehow find a way to do that, it won't function appropriately for the reason that almost all of the script code will be encrypted to a point where it cannot be interpreted. That is why, you have to make sure that ionCube Loader is installed when you get a new web hosting account and you wish to use some paid web application. If you purchase a shared website hosting account and the tool is not present, it cannot be added because the whole server PHP environment shall have to be compiled again.

IonCube in Cloud Web Hosting

IonCube Loader is supplied with each and every cloud web hosting package that we provide and you can activate it at any time with only a few clicks, so you can work with script apps that need it. You're able to do that through the PHP Configuration section of the Hepsia Control Panel and all it'll take to enable or disable ionCube is to click a button. The change will take effect within a minute, so you can go ahead and install the app that you'd like right away. The exact same section will allow you to change the PHP version that's active for your account, as we support several versions on our advanced cloud platform. In case you switch to a release that you have never used to date, you'll have to activate ionCube Loader once again. More advanced users will be able to use a php.ini file in a particular domain folder so as to set a PHP release different from the one for the whole account or enable/disable ionCube Loader.

IonCube in Semi-dedicated Hosting

As all of the semi-dedicated server accounts are created on our advanced cluster platform and ionCube Loader is available on it, you'll be able to use any script app that requires this tool to function effectively. With just a few clicks in your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel you'll be able to activate or deactivate ionCube for the PHP version that is currently active for the account. Since we support multiple versions of PHP concurrently, you'll have to do that any time you move to a different release, but if you revert back to a version which you've already used, our system will remember your choice and ionCube Loader will already be activated. If you have multiple sites inside the same account and they require different versions of PHP, you'll be able to create a php.ini file in each and every domain folder and with a couple of lines of program code you can define both the PHP version plus the status of ionCube no matter what is selected for the web hosting account as a whole.
