Lots of script-driven apps, especially paid content management systems, encrypt their files to ensure that they won't be reverse engineered or tampered with. Most of them use an app named ionCube PHP Encoder to do this, so if you acquire a paid script and you'd like to install it in a hosting account, a software tool known as ionCube Loader must be present on your server. Without it, you won't be able to install the script or in case you somehow find a way to do that, it won't work efficiently due to the fact that most of the script code will be encrypted to a point where it cannot be interpreted. That's why, you need to make sure that ionCube Loader is set up when you get a fresh website hosting account and you wish to use some paid web app. If you acquire a shared hosting account and the tool is not present, it can't be added because the whole server PHP environment will have to be compiled again.
IonCube in Cloud Hosting
When you purchase a cloud hosting through us, it will be created on our custom-built cloud hosting platform where ionCube Loader is already present, so you won't have any kind of problems to manage any script app which requires the instrument in order to run properly. We also offer a few different releases of PHP, which means that if you change the version, you will have to activate ionCube again. Our system remembers the adjustments you make, so when you go back to the previous release of PHP which was active for your account, ionCube Loader will already be activated. Both the PHP version and the ionCube tool can be managed from the PHP Configuration area of our Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Every adjustment that you make takes literally just a click and it will take effect immediately.
IonCube in Semi-dedicated Servers
IonCube Loader is available with all the Linux semi-dedicated plans that we provide, so you won't have any problems in case you'd like to install and use some script application which requires the tool so as to operate properly. Enabling it is as easy as clicking a single button inside the Advanced section of the Hepsia Control Panel which comes with all the semi-dedicated accounts and the change will take effect in a minute, therefore you'll be able to proceed with the application set up without any delays. As we use a cutting-edge tailor-made platform and we support several versions of PHP simultaneously, you'll have to enable ionCube every time you move to a version that you haven't used before. You will also have the option to enable ionCube loader or 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 a couple of lines of program code in it.
