A lot of script-driven applications, particularly paid cms, encode their files in order to ensure that they won't be reverse engineered or tampered with. Most of them use an app known as ionCube PHP Encoder to do that, so when you acquire a paid script and you'd like to set it up in a hosting account, a software instrument called ionCube Loader must be present on the server. Without it, you cannot install the script or in case you somehow manage to do that, it won't work efficiently due to the fact that most of the script code will be encoded to a degree where it can't be interpreted. In this light, you need to ensure that ionCube Loader is installed if you get a new hosting account and you want to employ some paid web app. If you purchase a shared website hosting account and the tool is not present, it can't be added because the entire server PHP environment will have to be compiled again.

IonCube in Shared Hosting

If you obtain a Linux shared hosting through our company, it'll be created on our in-house made cloud hosting platform where ionCube Loader is already present, so you will not have any kind of problems to run any script application which requires the instrument in order to function appropriately. In addition, we offer a few different releases of PHP, so in case you change the version, you will need to enable ionCube once again. Our platform remembers the adjustments you make, so in case you switch back to the earlier release of PHP which was active for your account, ionCube Loader will already be activated. Both the PHP version as well as the ionCube tool can be managed through the PHP Configuration area of our Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. Each adjustment that you make takes literally just a single click and it'll take effect right away.

IonCube in Semi-dedicated Hosting

As all the semi-dedicated server accounts are set up on our advanced cluster platform and ionCube Loader is available on it, you'll be able to use any script app that needs the tool to function effectively. With a couple of clicks in the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel you are able to activate or deactivate ionCube for the PHP version that is currently active for your account. Because we support multiple versions of PHP at the same time, you'll have to do that each time you switch to a new version, but if you revert back to a version that you've already used, our system will remember your preference and ionCube Loader will already be active. In case you have a couple of websites inside the same account and they require different versions of PHP, you will be able to set up 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 release as well as the status of ionCube no matter what is selected for the hosting account as a whole.
