Plenty of script-driven apps, particularly paid content management systems, encode their files in order to ensure that they will not be reverse engineered or tampered with. Most of them use an app called ionCube PHP Encoder to do that, so if you purchase a paid script and you want to set it up in a website hosting account, a tool known as ionCube Loader needs to be present on the server. Without it, you can't install the script or in case you somehow find a way to do that, it won't function effectively as most of the script code will be encoded to a point where it cannot be interpreted. That's why, you should make sure that ionCube Loader is present when you get a fresh hosting account and you want to work with some paid web application. If you purchase a shared website hosting account and the tool is not present, it cannot be added since your entire server PHP environment will have to be compiled again.

IonCube in Cloud Hosting

If you buy a Linux cloud hosting package from us, it'll be created on our in-house built cloud platform where ionCube Loader is already set up, so you won't have any problems to run any script application which needs the instrument in order to function appropriately. We also offer several different releases of PHP, which means that if you switch the version, you'll need to activate ionCube once again. Our system remembers the changes you make, which means that if you move back to the previous version of PHP which was active for your account, ionCube Loader will already be enabled. The PHP version and the ionCube tool can be operated from the PHP Configuration part of our Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Any adjustment that you do takes literally just a mouse-click and it will take effect without delay.

IonCube in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Since all semi-dedicated server accounts are set up on our advanced cluster platform and ionCube Loader is available on it, you'll be able to use any script app that needs this tool to run effectively. With a couple of clicks in your 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 several releases of PHP simultaneously, you will need to do this every time you switch to a different version, and if you revert back to a version that you have already used, our system will remember your preference and ionCube Loader will already be active. In case you have several sites inside the same account and they need different releases of PHP, you're able to create a php.ini file in each and every domain folder and with a couple of lines of program code you will be able to define both the PHP release plus the status of ionCube irrespective of what is selected for the website hosting account as a whole.
