A lot of script-driven applications, especially paid cms, encrypt their files so as to ensure that they will not be reverse engineered or tampered with. Many of them use an app known as ionCube PHP Encoder to do that, so, in case you obtain a paid script and you intend to set it up in a website hosting account, an instrument called ionCube Loader has to be present on the server. Without this, you won't be able to install the script or in case you somehow find a way to do that, it will not function efficiently for the reason that almost all of the script code will be encoded to a point where it cannot be interpreted. In this light, you need to make sure that ionCube Loader is present if you get a new web hosting account and you want to take advantage of some paid web application. If you acquire a shared website hosting account and the instrument is not present, it can't be added as the entire server PHP environment shall have to be compiled again.

IonCube in Website Hosting

IonCube Loader is available with all website hosting plans that we provide, so any time you need it in order to set up and run a script application which requires it, you can enable it with a single click from the Advanced section of the Hepsia Control Panel. As you'll be able to change the PHP release which is active for your account from the same section, you need to activate the instrument for every new version that you set. When you're more skillful, you can take advantage of a php.ini file in a domain or subdomain folder and set the PHP version and the status of ionCube Loader for this particular website only, without affecting the whole account. In this way you're able to manage both new and older script applications for multiple websites in the same account - a thing that you will not be able to do with many other web hosting suppliers on the market.

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 shall be able to use any script app which needs the software tool in order to function effectively. With a couple of clicks in the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel you're able to activate or deactivate ionCube for the PHP version that's currently active for the account. Because we support multiple releases of PHP simultaneously, you'll need to do this every time you switch to a different version, and if you revert back to a release that you've already used, our system will remember your preference and ionCube Loader will already be activated. In case you have multiple websites inside the same account and they need different releases of PHP, you are able to set up a php.ini file in each domain folder and with a couple of lines of code you'll be able to define both the PHP version as well as the status of ionCube regardless of what is selected for the hosting account altogether.
