Plenty of script-driven applications, especially paid cms, encode their files in order 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 that, so, in case you get a paid script and you wish to install it in a hosting account, a software instrument called ionCube Loader needs to be present on your server. Without this, you can't install the script or if you somehow manage to do that, it won't operate properly for the reason that almost all of the script code will be encoded to a degree where it can't be interpreted. In this light, you should ensure that ionCube Loader is present if you get a new web hosting account and you want to work with some paid web app. If you get a shared website hosting account and the instrument is not present, it can't be added because the entire server PHP environment shall have to be compiled again.
IonCube in Shared Web Hosting
If you obtain a shared web hosting plan through our company, it'll be set up on our custom cloud hosting platform where ionCube Loader is already present, so you won't have any kind of problems to manage any script app that requires the tool in order to function appropriately. Furthermore, we provide several different releases of PHP, therefore if you change the version, you'll need to activate ionCube again. Our system remembers the changes you make, and in case you go back to the earlier release of PHP that was active for your account, ionCube Loader will already be enabled. The PHP version as well as the ionCube instrument can be managed from the PHP Configuration area of our Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. Each adjustment that you make takes literally just a mouse-click and it takes effect right away.
IonCube in Semi-dedicated Servers
Due to the fact that 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 app which requires this software tool so as to work properly. With a couple of clicks in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel you'll be able to activate or deactivate ionCube for the PHP version that is currently active for your account. Since we support several versions of PHP at the same time, you will have to do this each time you switch to a different release, and if you revert back to a release that you've already used, our system will remember your choice and ionCube Loader will already be activated. When you have a couple of sites in the same account and they need different releases of PHP, you're able to create a php.ini file in each and every domain folder and with several lines of code you'll be able to define both the PHP version as well as the status of ionCube no matter what is selected for the hosting account as a whole.
