Lots of script-driven apps, especially paid cms, encrypt their files to make sure that they will not be reverse engineered or tampered with. Most of them use an app named ionCube PHP Encoder to do this, so, in case you acquire a paid script and you want to set it up in a website hosting account, an instrument called ionCube Loader must be present on your server. Without it, you can't install the script or in case you somehow manage to do that, it will not work appropriately since most of the script code will be encoded to a degree where it cannot be interpreted. That's why, you need to make sure that ionCube Loader is present when you get a new website hosting account and you'd like to use some paid web application. If you get 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 Hosting

If you buy a hosting from us, it will be created on our custom cloud platform where ionCube Loader is already present, so you will not have any problems to manage any script application that requires the instrument to function appropriately. In addition, we offer you a few different releases of PHP, which means that if you switch the version, you will have to activate ionCube again. Our platform remembers the changes you make, so in case you move back to the previous release of PHP that was active for your account, ionCube Loader will already be enabled. The PHP version and the ionCube instrument can be managed through the PHP Configuration section of our Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Each change that you do takes literally just a click and it'll take effect instantly.

IonCube in Semi-dedicated Servers

Since all semi-dedicated server accounts are created on our advanced cluster platform and ionCube Loader is available on it, you shall be able to use any script app that needs this software tool in order to function efficiently. With a couple of clicks in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel you'll be able to activate or deactivate ionCube for the PHP version that's currently active for the account. As we support multiple releases of PHP concurrently, you will need to do that each time you switch to a new version, but when you revert back to a release which you have already used, our system will remember your preference and ionCube Loader will already be activated. If you have several sites in the same account and they require different releases of PHP, you are able to set up a php.ini file in each and every domain folder and with a couple of lines of program code you'll be able to define both the PHP release and the status of ionCube regardless of what is selected for the hosting account as a whole.
