Plenty of script-driven applications, especially paid cms, encrypt their files to make sure that they won't be reverse engineered or tampered with. The majority of them use an app called ionCube PHP Encoder to do this, so when you obtain a paid script and you intend to install it in a web hosting account, an instrument known as ionCube Loader has to be present on your server. Without having it, you won't be able to install the script or if you somehow manage to do that, it will not work appropriately due to the fact that almost all of the script code will be encoded to a degree where it can't be interpreted. That's why, you have to ensure that ionCube Loader is present if you get a new website hosting account and you would like to take advantage of some paid web app. If you buy a shared website hosting account and the tool is not present, it cannot be added as the whole server PHP environment will have to be compiled again.

IonCube in Shared Hosting

When you buy a shared hosting through us, it'll be set up on our in-house made cloud platform where ionCube Loader is already present, so you will not have any problems to run any script app that requires the instrument in order to function appropriately. Furthermore, we provide a few different releases of PHP, which means that in case you change the version, you'll need to activate ionCube once again. Our system remembers the adjustments you make, so in case you go back to the earlier version 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 through the PHP Configuration part of our Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. Every adjustment that you do takes literally just a click and it'll take effect without delay.

IonCube in Semi-dedicated Servers

Since all of the 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 application that needs the software tool to run properly. With just a few clicks in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel you are able to activate or deactivate ionCube for the PHP version that's currently active for the account. As we support a couple of releases of PHP at the same time, you'll have to do that each and every time you switch to a different release, but when you revert back to a version that you have already used, our system will remember your choice and ionCube Loader will already be active. If you have a couple of sites inside the same account and they require different versions of PHP, you'll be able to create a php.ini file in every single domain folder and with several lines of code you can define both the PHP release as well as the status of ionCube irrespective of what is selected for the website hosting account as a whole.
