A lot of script-driven applications, particularly paid cms, encode their files so as to ensure that they won't be reverse engineered or tampered with. Many of them use an application named ionCube PHP Encoder to do that, so when you get a paid script and you would like to install it in a hosting account, an instrument called ionCube Loader must be present on the server. Without it, you can't install the script or if you somehow manage to do this, it won't function properly due to the fact that almost all of the script code will be encrypted to a point where it can't be interpreted. That is why, you need to make sure that ionCube Loader is present if you get a fresh hosting account and you would like to take advantage of some paid web app. If you get a shared hosting account and the tool is not present, it can't be added since the whole server PHP environment will have to be compiled again.

IonCube in Shared Website Hosting

When you buy a shared website hosting through our company, it'll be set up on our custom-built cloud hosting platform where ionCube Loader is already set up, so you will not have any problems to run any script application that requires the tool in order to function properly. In addition, we supply a few different versions of PHP, so in case you change the version, you'll have to enable ionCube once again. Our platform remembers the adjustments you make, and if you go back to the earlier release of PHP that was active for your account, ionCube Loader will already be activated. Both the PHP version as well as the ionCube instrument can be operated through the PHP Configuration area of our Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. Every adjustment that you make takes literally just a click and it'll take effect without delay.

IonCube in Semi-dedicated Servers

Because 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 application which needs this tool in order to work efficiently. With a couple of 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. Since we support a couple of releases of PHP at the same time, you will have to do this any time you switch to a different version, but when you revert back to a version which you've already used, our system will remember your choice and ionCube Loader will already be activated. In case you have several sites inside the same account and they require different releases of PHP, you will be able to create a php.ini file in each and every domain folder and with several lines of code you will be able to define both the PHP release and the status of ionCube irrespective of what is selected for the website hosting account as a whole.
