A lot of script-driven applications, particularly paid cms, encrypt their files to make sure that they will not be reverse engineered or tampered with. Most of them use an application known as ionCube PHP Encoder to do this, 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 has to be present on the server. Without it, you can't install the script or if you somehow find a way to do that, it won't work effectively since most of the script code will be encoded to a degree where it cannot be interpreted. That's why, you have to make sure that ionCube Loader is set up when you get a fresh web hosting account and you want to take advantage of some paid web app. If you get 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 Web Hosting

If you buy a Linux shared web hosting package from our company, it will be set up on our in-house built cloud hosting platform where ionCube Loader is already set up, so you won't have any kind of problems to run any script application that requires the tool so as to function appropriately. Furthermore, we offer you a few different releases of PHP, therefore if you switch the version, you'll need to activate ionCube again. Our platform remembers the changes you make, which means that when you switch back to the earlier version 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 managed through the PHP Configuration part of our Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Any change that you make takes literally just a mouse-click and it takes effect at once.

IonCube in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Since all the semi-dedicated server accounts are created on our advanced cluster platform and ionCube Loader is available on it, you will be able to use any script application which requires this software tool so as to work effectively. With several clicks in your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel you will be able to activate or deactivate ionCube for the PHP version which is currently active for your account. Since we support several releases of PHP simultaneously, you will need to do that each time you switch to a new release, but when you revert back to a version which you have already used, our system will remember your preference and ionCube Loader will already be active. In case you have several sites in the same account and they need different versions of PHP, you can set up a php.ini file in every single domain folder and with several lines of code you are able to define both the PHP version plus the status of ionCube irrespective of what is selected for the web hosting account as a whole.
