A lot of script-driven applications, particularly paid cms, encode their files to make sure that they will not be reverse engineered or tampered with. Many of them use an app known as ionCube PHP Encoder to do that, so if you buy a paid script and you intend to install it in a website hosting account, a software tool known as ionCube Loader needs to be present on the server. Without it, you can't install the script or if you somehow manage to do this, it won't operate effectively as almost all of the script code will be encoded to a degree where it can't be interpreted. In this light, you have to make sure that ionCube Loader is installed when you get a fresh hosting account and you would like to use some paid web application. If you purchase a shared website hosting account and the tool is not present, it can't be added as your entire server PHP environment shall have to be compiled again.

IonCube in Shared Website Hosting

If you aquire a shared website hosting package from us, it will be created on our custom-made cloud platform where ionCube Loader is already set up, so you won't have any kind of problems to manage any script app which requires the tool to function properly. In addition, we offer a few different versions of PHP, therefore if you change the version, you need to enable ionCube once again. Our platform remembers the adjustments you make, which means that in case you go back to the earlier version of PHP that was active for your account, ionCube Loader will already be enabled. 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 change that you do takes literally just a mouse-click and it takes effect at once.

IonCube in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Since all the semi-dedicated server accounts are set up on our advanced cluster platform and ionCube Loader is available on it, you'll be able to use any script application that requires the tool so as to function properly. With a couple of clicks in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel you are able to activate or deactivate ionCube for the PHP version that's currently active for your account. As we support a couple of versions of PHP at the same time, you will have to do that any time you switch to a new release, and when you revert back to a version that you've already used, our system will remember your preference and ionCube Loader will already be activated. In case you have a couple of websites in the same account and they need different versions of PHP, you are able to set up a php.ini file in each domain folder and with a couple of lines of code you'll be able to define both the PHP release as well as the status of ionCube regardless of what is selected for the hosting account altogether.
