A lot of script-driven apps, especially paid content management systems, encrypt their files in order to ensure that they won't be reverse engineered or tampered with. The majority of them use an application known as ionCube PHP Encoder to do this, so when you acquire a paid script and you would like to install it in a web hosting account, a software instrument known as ionCube Loader must be present on your server. Without having it, you can't install the script or if you somehow find a way to do that, it won't operate effectively for the reason that almost all of the script code will be encrypted to a degree where it cannot be interpreted. That is why, you should make sure that ionCube Loader is installed if you get a new website hosting account and you wish to take advantage of some paid web app. If you purchase 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 Cloud Hosting

When you aquire a Linux cloud hosting through us, it'll be set up on our tailor-made cloud platform where ionCube Loader is already installed, so you will not have any problems to run any script application that requires the tool to run appropriately. In addition, we offer several different versions of PHP, so if you switch the version, you'll have to enable ionCube again. Our system remembers the adjustments you make, and in case you move back to the earlier release of PHP that was active for your account, ionCube Loader will already be enabled. The PHP version and the ionCube instrument can be managed from the PHP Configuration section of our Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. Every change that you make takes literally just a click and it takes effect instantly.

IonCube in Semi-dedicated Servers

Due to the fact that all 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 which requires this software tool in order to function effectively. With just a few clicks in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel you will be able to activate or deactivate ionCube for the PHP version that's currently active for your account. Since we support multiple releases of PHP concurrently, you will need to do that any time you move to a new version, and 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. In case you have a couple of websites inside the same account and they need different releases of PHP, you are able to create a php.ini file in each and every domain folder and with a couple of lines of code you'll be able to define both the PHP version plus the status of ionCube regardless of what is selected for the website hosting account altogether.
