Plenty of script-driven apps, especially paid cms, encrypt their files in order to ensure that they won't be reverse engineered or tampered with. Many of them use an application called ionCube PHP Encoder to do this, so, in case you acquire a paid script and you wish to install it in a hosting account, an instrument called ionCube Loader has to be present on the server. Without having it, you won't be able to install the script or if you somehow manage to do that, it will not work appropriately since most of the script code will be encoded to a degree where it cannot be interpreted. That is why, you have to make sure that ionCube Loader is set up if you get a fresh website hosting account and you wish to employ some paid web application. If you acquire a shared website hosting account and the tool is not present, it can't be added because your entire server PHP environment will have to be compiled again.

IonCube in Cloud Hosting

IonCube Loader is supplied with each cloud hosting that we supply and you will be able to activate it at any time with only a few clicks, so you'll be able to take advantage of script applications which need it. You're able to do that from the PHP Configuration section of the Hepsia Control Panel and all it takes to activate or disable ionCube is to click a button. The change takes effect in a minute, therefore you'll be able to proceed and set up the app that you would like without delay. The exact same section allows you to change the PHP version that's active for your account, because we support a variety of versions on our leading-edge cloud hosting platform. If you move to a version that you have never used to date, you'll need to enable ionCube Loader once again. Experienced users will be able to use a php.ini file in a particular domain folder to set a PHP version different from the one for the entire account or enable/disable ionCube Loader.

IonCube in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Because all 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 app which requires the software tool so as to work properly. With just a few clicks in your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel you'll be able to activate or deactivate ionCube for the PHP version which is currently active for your account. Because we support multiple versions of PHP concurrently, you'll need to do that each time you move to a new release, but if you revert back to a version that you've already used, our system will remember your choice and ionCube Loader will already be activated. If you have several websites inside the same account and they need different releases of PHP, you'll be able to set up a php.ini file in every single 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 web hosting account altogether.
