A lot of script-driven applications, especially paid content management systems, encrypt their files so as to ensure that they will not be reverse engineered or tampered with. Many of them use an application known as ionCube PHP Encoder to do this, so when you purchase a paid script and you wish to install it in a web hosting account, a software instrument called ionCube Loader has to be present on your server. Without it, you will not be able to install the script or if you somehow find a way to do that, it will not function properly as almost all of the script code will be encrypted to a point where it can't be interpreted. That is why, you need to make sure that ionCube Loader is present when you get a new web hosting account and you want to work with some paid web app. If you buy a shared hosting account and the instrument is not present, it can't be added as your entire server PHP environment shall have to be compiled again.
IonCube in Shared Website Hosting
When you buy a Linux shared website hosting package from us, it'll be created on our in-house made cloud hosting platform where ionCube Loader is already present, so you won't have any problems to manage any script application that requires the tool in order to function appropriately. Furthermore, we offer a few different releases of PHP, which means that if you switch the version, you'll need to activate ionCube again. Our platform remembers the changes you make, so if you switch back to the previous version of PHP that was active for your account, ionCube Loader will already be turned on. The PHP version and the ionCube tool can be operated through the PHP Configuration part of our Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Any adjustment that you make takes literally just a single click and it'll take effect right away.
IonCube in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Since all of the semi-dedicated server accounts are created on our advanced cluster platform and ionCube Loader is available on it, you'll be able to use any script app that requires the tool in order to run effectively. With several clicks in the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel you are able to activate or deactivate ionCube for the PHP version which is currently active for your account. Since we support multiple releases of PHP concurrently, you'll need to do that every time you move to a new version, 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 active. In case you have several sites inside the same account and they need different releases of PHP, you are able to create a php.ini file in each domain folder and with a couple of lines of program code you're able to define both the PHP release as well as the status of ionCube no matter what is selected for the hosting account as a whole.
