Plenty of script-driven apps, especially paid content management systems, encode their files in order to make sure 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, in case you get a paid script and you would like to set it up in a website hosting account, a software instrument known as ionCube Loader needs to be present on the server. Without this, you won't be able to install the script or if you somehow manage to do that, it will not work effectively for the reason that most of the script code will be encoded to a degree where it can't be interpreted. That is why, you should make sure that ionCube Loader is installed if you get a fresh hosting account and you'd like to employ some paid web app. If you obtain a shared website hosting account and the tool is not present, it cannot be added since the whole server PHP environment shall have to be compiled again.

IonCube in Cloud Hosting

IonCube Loader is available with all the cloud hosting plans that we provide, so if you need it in order to set up and execute some script app which requires it, you can activate it with a click in the Advanced area of your Hepsia Control Panel. As you'll be able to change the PHP version that is active for your account from the same section, you will need to enable the instrument for every new version which you set. When you're more experienced, you are able to employ a php.ini file in a domain or subdomain folder and set the PHP version and the status of ionCube Loader for this particular website only, without affecting the entire account. In this way you are able to manage both new and older script apps for multiple websites inside the same account - something that you won't be able to do with a lot of other website hosting providers out there.

IonCube in Semi-dedicated Hosting

As all semi-dedicated server accounts are set up on our advanced cluster platform and ionCube Loader is available on it, you will be able to use any script app that requires this software tool so as to work effectively. With just a few clicks in your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel you can activate or deactivate ionCube for the PHP version which is currently active for your account. As we support multiple releases of PHP at the same time, you will have to do this each time you move to a different version, but if you revert back to a version that you have already used, our system will remember your choice and ionCube Loader will already be activated. When you have several websites inside the same account and they require different releases of PHP, you'll be able to set up a php.ini file in each and every domain folder and with several lines of code you can define both the PHP release and the status of ionCube regardless of what is selected for the website hosting account as a whole.
