Lots of script-driven apps, especially paid cms, encrypt their files so as to make sure that they won't be reverse engineered or tampered with. Many of them use an application known as ionCube PHP Encoder to do this, so, in case you obtain a paid script and you'd like to install it in a web hosting account, an instrument called ionCube Loader has to be present on the server. Without having it, you cannot install the script or if you somehow find a way to do that, it won't function properly because most of the script code will be encrypted to a point where it can't be interpreted. That's why, you have to make sure that ionCube Loader is set up when you get a fresh web hosting account and you want to use some paid web application. If you get a shared web hosting account and the tool is not present, it cannot be added as the whole server PHP environment will have to be compiled again.

IonCube in Shared Hosting

When you aquire a Linux shared package through our company, it'll be set up on our custom-built cloud platform where ionCube Loader is already installed, so you won't have any problems to manage any script application that needs the instrument to function appropriately. We also offer several different versions of PHP, so if you change the version, you will have to enable ionCube again. Our system remembers the changes you make, and if you switch back to the earlier version 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 managed through the PHP Configuration part of our Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. Any adjustment that you make takes literally just a click and it takes effect at once.

IonCube in Semi-dedicated Hosting

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