Lots of script-driven apps, particularly paid content management systems, encrypt their files in order to make sure that they will not be reverse engineered or tampered with. The majority of them use an app called ionCube PHP Encoder to do this, so if you purchase a paid script and you wish to install it in a web hosting account, a software instrument called ionCube Loader has to be present on your server. Without it, you won't be able to install the script or if you somehow manage to do that, it won't function effectively as most of the script code will be encoded to a point where it cannot be interpreted. In this light, you should ensure that ionCube Loader is present if you get a fresh web hosting account and you'd like to use some paid web app. If you purchase a shared hosting account and the tool is not present, it can't be added as the whole server PHP environment shall have to be compiled again.

IonCube in Shared Hosting

IonCube Loader is supplied with each Linux shared hosting package that we supply and you'll be able to enable it at any time with just a few clicks, so you will be able to take advantage of script apps that need it. You're able to do that through the PHP Configuration section of your Hepsia Control Panel and all it will take to activate or deactivate ionCube is to click a button. The change will take effect in a minute, so you are able to go ahead and set up the application that you'd like right away. The exact same section will allow you to change the PHP version that's active for your account, because we support a number of releases on our cutting-edge cloud platform. In case you move to a version that you haven't used to date, you will have to enable ionCube Loader again. More advanced users will be able to use a php.ini file in a particular domain folder so as to set a PHP release different from the one for the whole account or enable/disable ionCube Loader.

IonCube in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Each and every semi-dedicated server account which is created on our cutting-edge cloud web hosting platform has ionCube Loader support, so you'll be able to install any script application that requires the tool. Then use it to start and maintain your web presence. You can enable ionCube through the PHP Configuration section of the Control Panel and it will take you no more than a couple of clicks to do this. The change takes effect instantly, which means that you will be able to proceed and install the necessary script inside your account. If you decide to switch the PHP version that's active for the account, you need to activate ionCube for the new release as well. Our custom-made platform also allows you to have a different PHP release for each and every domain or subdomain, which is done with a php.ini file in each domain folder. In the same way, you will be able to enable/disable ionCube Loader for each individual site hosted in your semi-dedicated account.
