Lots of script-driven apps, particularly paid content management systems, encode their files so as to ensure that they won't be reverse engineered or tampered with. Many of them use an app called ionCube PHP Encoder to do this, so if you obtain 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 this, you won't be able to install the script or in case you somehow find a way to do that, it will not function effectively because almost all of the script code will be encrypted to a point where it can't be interpreted. In this light, you need to ensure that ionCube Loader is set up when you get a fresh hosting account and you wish to employ some paid web application. If you acquire a shared hosting account and the tool is not present, it can't be added since the entire server PHP environment shall have to be compiled again.

IonCube in Shared Web Hosting

When you purchase a shared web hosting through our company, it'll be created on our in-house built cloud hosting platform where ionCube Loader is already present, so you won't have any problems to run any script application which requires the instrument so as to function properly. In addition, we offer a few different versions of PHP, therefore in case you switch the version, you'll have to enable ionCube once again. Our system remembers the adjustments you make, which means that if you move back to the earlier release of PHP which was active for your account, ionCube Loader will already be enabled. The PHP version and the ionCube tool can be operated through the PHP Configuration part of our Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Every change that you make takes literally just a mouse-click and it'll take effect immediately.

IonCube in Semi-dedicated Servers

IonCube Loader is available with all the semi-dedicated servers that we supply, and you won't experience any kind of problems in case you'd like to set up and work with a script app that requires the tool in order to operate properly. Enabling it is as easy as clicking a single button inside the Advanced part of the Hepsia Control Panel which comes with all the semi-dedicated accounts and the change shall take effect in less than a minute, therefore you are able to proceed with the app installation without delay. Because we use an avant-garde custom-built platform and we support many different versions of PHP at the same time, you will need to activate ionCube every time you switch to a version that you haven't used before. Additionally, you have the option to activate ionCube loader or even to set a PHP version different from the one in the account as a whole by generating a php.ini file in an individual domain or subdomain folder and adding several lines of code in it.
