A lot of script-driven apps, especially paid content management systems, encode their files in order to ensure that they will not be reverse engineered or tampered with. Most of them use an app named ionCube PHP Encoder to do that, so if you get a paid script and you would like to set it up in a hosting account, a software instrument called ionCube Loader needs to be present on the server. Without having it, you won't be able to install the script or in case you somehow find a way to do that, it won't function efficiently for the reason that most of the script code will be encoded to a point where it can't be interpreted. That is why, you should ensure that ionCube Loader is installed when you get a fresh website hosting account and you wish to work with some paid web application. If you obtain a shared website hosting account and the tool is not present, it cannot be added since the whole server PHP environment shall have to be compiled again.

IonCube in Hosting

If you purchase a hosting through our company, it'll be set up on our tailor-made cloud hosting platform where ionCube Loader is already present, so you will not have any kind of problems to run any script application that needs the instrument to run properly. In addition, we offer you a few different releases of PHP, so if you change the version, you'll have to activate ionCube once again. Our platform remembers the changes you make, which means that in case you move back to the previous version of PHP that was active for your account, ionCube Loader will already be enabled. Both the PHP version and the ionCube tool can be managed from the PHP Configuration part of our Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. Every adjustment that you make takes literally just a single click and it takes effect at once.

IonCube in Semi-dedicated Hosting

As all semi-dedicated server accounts are created on our advanced cluster platform and ionCube Loader is available on it, you'll be able to use any script app that requires this software tool so as to function efficiently. With a couple of clicks in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel you can activate or deactivate ionCube for the PHP version that's currently active for the account. Because we support a couple of versions of PHP simultaneously, you will need to do that each and every time you switch to a different release, but if you revert back to a version which you have already used, our system will remember your choice and ionCube Loader will already be active. In case you have several sites inside the same account and they need different versions of PHP, you'll be able to set up a php.ini file in each domain folder and with a couple of lines of program code you're able to define both the PHP version plus the status of ionCube regardless of what is selected for the web hosting account as a whole.
