Lots of script-driven apps, especially paid cms, encode their files in order to make sure 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, in case you get a paid script and you want to set it up in a hosting account, a tool known as ionCube Loader needs to be present on the server. Without having it, you can't install the script or if you somehow find a way to do that, it won't function appropriately due to the fact that most of the script code will be encrypted to a point where it cannot be interpreted. In this light, you should ensure that ionCube Loader is installed when you get a fresh web hosting account and you want to use some paid web application. If you purchase a shared web hosting account and the tool is not present, it cannot be added as the whole server PHP environment shall have to be compiled again.

IonCube in Cloud Hosting

When you obtain a Linux cloud package through us, it will be created on our tailor-made cloud hosting platform where ionCube Loader is already set up, so you won't have any problems to manage any script app which requires the instrument so as to run properly. We also supply a few different versions of PHP, which means that if you change the version, you will have to activate ionCube again. Our platform remembers the changes you make, so in case you switch back to the earlier release of PHP which was active for your account, ionCube Loader will already be turned on. Both the PHP version as well as the ionCube tool can be operated through the PHP Configuration part of our Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Every change that you do takes literally just a single click and it'll take effect right away.

IonCube in Semi-dedicated Hosting

As all of the semi-dedicated server accounts are set up on our advanced cluster platform and ionCube Loader is available on it, you will be able to use any script application that needs the software tool to function efficiently. 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 your account. As we support multiple versions of PHP concurrently, you will have to do that any time you move to a new version, and when you revert back to a version which you've already used, our system will remember your preference and ionCube Loader will already be activated. In case you have several sites inside the same account and they require different versions of PHP, you are able to set up a php.ini file in each and every domain folder and with several lines of program code you are able to define both the PHP version and the status of ionCube regardless of what is selected for the website hosting account altogether.
