Plenty of script-driven applications, particularly paid content management systems, encode their files to ensure that they will not be reverse engineered or tampered with. The majority of them use an application called ionCube PHP Encoder to do this, so when you obtain a paid script and you'd like to set it up in a hosting account, a software tool known as ionCube Loader must be present on the server. Without this, you will not be able to install the script or if you somehow manage to do this, it won't function properly since almost all of the script code will be encoded to a degree where it cannot be interpreted. That is why, you need to ensure that ionCube Loader is present when you get a new website hosting account and you want to work with some paid web application. If you buy a shared web hosting account and the instrument is not present, it can't be added since your entire server PHP environment will have to be compiled again.

IonCube in Shared Website Hosting

When you obtain a shared website hosting through our company, it'll be created on our in-house built cloud hosting platform where ionCube Loader is already present, so you will not have any problems to manage any script app which needs the tool to function appropriately. We also offer you a few different releases of PHP, therefore if you switch the version, you will have to activate ionCube once again. Our platform remembers the changes you make, and if you go back to the previous version of PHP which was active for your account, ionCube Loader will already be activated. Both the PHP version as well as the ionCube instrument can be managed through the PHP Configuration section of our Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. Every adjustment that you make takes literally just a mouse-click and it'll take effect right away.

IonCube in Semi-dedicated Servers

Because all semi-dedicated server accounts are set up on our advanced cluster platform and ionCube Loader is available on it, you shall be able to use any script application that needs this software tool in order to run efficiently. With a couple of clicks in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel you are able to activate or deactivate ionCube for the PHP version that is currently active for the account. Since 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 version, but if you revert back to a version which you have already used, our system will remember your preference and ionCube Loader will already be active. If you have several websites inside the same account and they require different versions of PHP, you will be able to create a php.ini file in each domain folder and with several lines of code you'll be able to define both the PHP version and the status of ionCube no matter what is selected for the hosting account altogether.
