A lot of script-driven applications, especially paid content management systems, encode their files so as to make sure that they will not be reverse engineered or tampered with. Most of them use an app called ionCube PHP Encoder to do this, so, in case you buy a paid script and you would like to install it in a website hosting account, a tool known as ionCube Loader has 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 this, it won't operate efficiently since most of the script code will be encrypted to a point where it can't be interpreted. That's why, you should make sure that ionCube Loader is set up if you get a fresh hosting account and you want to take advantage of some paid web application. If you buy a shared website hosting account and the instrument is not present, it can't be added since the entire server PHP environment shall have to be compiled again.

IonCube in Cloud Hosting

IonCube Loader is available with all cloud hosting packages which we provide, so any time you require it to install and execute some script app which needs it, you can enable it with a single click from the Advanced section of your Hepsia Control Panel. Due to the fact that you're able to switch the PHP release that is active for your account from the same section, you will need to activate the tool for each new version which you set. In case you are more experienced, you are able to employ a php.ini file in a domain or subdomain folder and set both the PHP version as well as the status of ionCube Loader for that particular site only, without affecting the entire account. Thus you can manage both new and older script applications for multiple websites inside the same account - something that you cannot do with numerous other website hosting service providers on the market.

IonCube in Semi-dedicated Servers

Because all of the semi-dedicated server accounts are created 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 so as to function effectively. With several clicks in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel you'll be able to activate or deactivate ionCube for the PHP version which is currently active for the account. Because we support a couple of releases of PHP at the same time, you'll need to do that any time you switch to a new version, but if you revert back to a release which you have already used, our system will remember your choice and ionCube Loader will already be active. If you have several sites in the same account and they need different releases of PHP, you are able to create a php.ini file in every single domain folder and with a couple of lines of program code you'll be able to define both the PHP version as well as the status of ionCube irrespective of what is selected for the hosting account as a whole.
