Plenty of script-driven applications, especially paid cms, encode their files so as to ensure that they will not be reverse engineered or tampered with. Many of them use an app named ionCube PHP Encoder to do that, so, in case you buy a paid script and you intend to set it up in a web hosting account, a software tool known as ionCube Loader has to be present on the server. Without it, you won't be able to install the script or if you somehow find a way to do that, it will not work properly as 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 installed if you get a fresh web hosting account and you'd like to use some paid web app. If you get a shared web hosting account and the instrument is not present, it cannot be added because your entire server PHP environment will have to be compiled again.
IonCube in Shared Hosting
When you purchase a shared hosting through our company, it will be set up on our custom-made cloud hosting platform where ionCube Loader is already present, so you won't have any problems to run any script app which needs the tool to run appropriately. We also provide a few different versions of PHP, therefore if you change the version, you will need to enable ionCube once again. Our platform remembers the changes you make, so in case you go back to the previous release of PHP that was active for your account, ionCube Loader will already be activated. The PHP version as well as the ionCube instrument can be managed from the PHP Configuration section of our Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. Every change that you make takes literally just a single click and it will take effect at once.
IonCube in Semi-dedicated Servers
Since 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 run properly. With a couple of clicks in the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel you are able to activate or deactivate ionCube for the PHP version that's currently active for your account. Because we support a couple of releases of PHP at the same time, you will have to do that each and every time you switch to a different version, but when you revert back to a version that you've already used, our system will remember your choice and ionCube Loader will already be activated. When you have a couple of websites in the same account and they require different versions of PHP, you'll be able to set up a php.ini file in each domain folder and with a couple of lines of program code you can define both the PHP release as well as the status of ionCube no matter what is selected for the website hosting account as a whole.
