Lots of script-driven apps, particularly paid cms, encode their files in order to make sure that they will not be reverse engineered or tampered with. Many of them use an app known as ionCube PHP Encoder to do this, so, in case you acquire a paid script and you would like to set it up in a website hosting account, an instrument known as ionCube Loader needs to be present on your server. Without having it, you can't install the script or if you somehow manage to do this, it will not work effectively because most of the script code will be encoded to a degree where it cannot be interpreted. That is why, you need to make sure that ionCube Loader is installed if you get a new hosting account and you would like to take advantage of some paid web application. If you acquire a shared web hosting account and the instrument is not present, it can't be added because the whole server PHP environment will have to be compiled again.

IonCube in Shared Website Hosting

If you obtain a Linux shared website hosting plan through us, it'll be created on our tailor-made cloud platform where ionCube Loader is already installed, so you will not have any kind of problems to run any script app which requires the instrument in order to run properly. Furthermore, we offer a few different releases of PHP, which means that if you switch the version, you will need to enable ionCube once again. Our platform remembers the changes you make, so when you switch back to the previous version of PHP that was active for your account, ionCube Loader will already be activated. The PHP version as well as the ionCube tool can be operated from the PHP Configuration section of our Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. Each change that you do takes literally just a mouse-click and it will take effect instantly.

IonCube in Semi-dedicated Servers

As all of 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 application which requires the software tool so as to work effectively. With just a few clicks in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel you will be able to activate or deactivate ionCube for the PHP version that's currently active for your account. Because we support a couple of versions of PHP concurrently, you'll need to do this every time you move to a different release, and when you revert back to a release which you've already used, our system will remember your preference and ionCube Loader will already be activated. When you have a couple of sites in the same account and they require different versions of PHP, you're able to set up a php.ini file in each domain folder and with a couple of lines of code you will be able to define both the PHP version plus the status of ionCube irrespective of what is selected for the web hosting account altogether.
