Plenty of script-driven apps, particularly paid cms, encode their files so as to ensure that they will not be reverse engineered or tampered with. The majority of them use an app called ionCube PHP Encoder to do this, so when you obtain a paid script and you'd like to install it in a website hosting account, a software instrument known as ionCube Loader has to be present on your server. Without having it, you can't install the script or if you somehow manage to do that, it won't function appropriately since most of the script code will be encoded to a point where it cannot be interpreted. That is why, you need to ensure that ionCube Loader is present when you get a fresh hosting account and you want to employ some paid web application. If you buy a shared website hosting account and the tool is not present, it can't be added as the whole server PHP environment shall have to be compiled again.

IonCube in Shared Hosting

If you aquire a shared hosting service through our company, it'll be set up on our custom cloud hosting platform where ionCube Loader is already set up, so you won't have any kind of problems to manage any script application which needs the instrument in order to run properly. In addition, we offer you a few different versions of PHP, which means that if you switch the version, you will have to activate ionCube again. Our system remembers the adjustments you make, and when you move back to the previous release of PHP which 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 section of our Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. Any change that you do takes literally just a single click and it will take effect right away.

IonCube in Semi-dedicated Servers

IonCube Loader is provided with all the semi-dedicated servers that we provide, and you will not encounter any kind of problems if you'd like to set up and use some script application that requires the software instrument so as to function appropriately. Enabling it is as easy as clicking a single button in the Advanced section of the Hepsia Control Panel which comes with all of the semi-dedicated accounts and the change shall take effect in a minute, therefore you're able to proceed with the app installation without delay. Because we employ an innovative in-house made platform and we support several versions of PHP simultaneously, you will need to activate ionCube any time you switch to a version that you have not used before. You will also have the option to enable ionCube loader and even to set a PHP release different from the one in the account as a whole by creating a php.ini file in an individual domain or subdomain folder and adding several lines of code in it.
