Plenty of script-driven apps, especially paid cms, encode their files to make sure that they won't be reverse engineered or tampered with. Most of them use an application named ionCube PHP Encoder to do that, so when you purchase a paid script and you'd like to set it up in a website hosting account, a software tool known as ionCube Loader needs to be present on the server. Without having it, you will not be able to install the script or if you somehow find a way to do that, it will not work effectively as most of the script code will be encrypted to a degree where it cannot be interpreted. In this light, you need to ensure that ionCube Loader is set up if you get a fresh web hosting account and you'd like to take advantage of some paid web application. If you purchase a shared web hosting account and the instrument is not present, it cannot be added because the whole server PHP environment will have to be compiled again.

IonCube in Shared Web Hosting

If you buy a Linux shared web hosting package through our company, it will be created on our tailor-made cloud hosting platform where ionCube Loader is already installed, so you will not have any kind of problems to run any script application which requires the tool so as to function appropriately. We also provide a few different versions of PHP, which means that in case you switch the version, you will need to activate ionCube once again. Our platform remembers the adjustments you make, which means that if you switch back to the previous release of PHP that was active for your account, ionCube Loader will already be activated. The PHP version as well as the ionCube tool can be operated from the PHP Configuration part of our Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Each change that you do takes literally just a single click and it'll take effect instantly.

IonCube in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Because all of the 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 which needs the tool to run efficiently. With just a few clicks in your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel you can activate or deactivate ionCube for the PHP version that's currently active for your account. Because we support several releases of PHP concurrently, you will need to do that every time you move to a new release, but if you revert back to a release that you've already used, our system will remember your choice and ionCube Loader will already be activated. In case you have multiple sites inside the same account and they need different versions 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 as well as the status of ionCube no matter what is selected for the website hosting account altogether.
