A lot of script-driven apps, especially paid cms, encode their files to make sure that they will not be reverse engineered or tampered with. Most of them use an application known as ionCube PHP Encoder to do this, so when you buy a paid script and you wish to set it up in a hosting account, a tool called ionCube Loader has to be present on your server. Without having it, you won't be able to install the script or if you somehow find a way to do that, it won't function effectively for the reason that most of the script code will be encoded to a degree where it cannot be interpreted. That's why, you need to make sure that ionCube Loader is set up if you get a new hosting account and you'd like to take advantage of some paid web app. If you buy a shared web 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 Shared Website Hosting

When you obtain a shared website hosting plan from us, it'll be set up on our custom-made cloud hosting platform where ionCube Loader is already set up, so you will not have any kind of problems to manage any script application which requires the instrument to run properly. We also provide several different versions of PHP, therefore in case you switch the version, you'll need to activate ionCube again. Our platform remembers the adjustments you make, and in case you move back to the previous release of PHP which was active for your account, ionCube Loader will already be turned on. Both the PHP version as well as the ionCube instrument can be managed from the PHP Configuration part of our Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Each change that you make takes literally just a single click and it takes effect instantly.

IonCube in Semi-dedicated Servers

Because all the semi-dedicated server accounts are created on our advanced cluster platform and ionCube Loader is available on it, you will be able to use any script application which requires this software tool so as to work effectively. With several clicks in your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel you are able to activate or deactivate ionCube for the PHP version that's currently active for your account. As we support several versions of PHP concurrently, you'll have to do this any time you move to a new version, and when you revert back to a release that you've already used, our system will remember your preference and ionCube Loader will already be active. When you have multiple sites inside the same account and they need different versions of PHP, you're able to create a php.ini file in each and every domain folder and with a couple of lines of code you'll be able to define both the PHP version and the status of ionCube irrespective of what is selected for the web hosting account as a whole.
