Plenty of script-driven applications, especially paid content management systems, encode their files in order to ensure that they will not be reverse engineered or tampered with. The majority of them use an application called ionCube PHP Encoder to do that, so if you get a paid script and you intend to set it up in a hosting account, a software tool known as ionCube Loader has to be present on your server. Without it, you won't be able to install the script or in case you somehow manage to do that, it will not work effectively for the reason that almost all of the script code will be encrypted to a point where it cannot be interpreted. That's why, you have to make sure that ionCube Loader is installed when you get a fresh website hosting account and you would like to use some paid web app. If you get a shared hosting account and the tool is not present, it can't be added since your entire server PHP environment shall have to be compiled again.

IonCube in Website Hosting

IonCube Loader is supplied with each and every Linux website hosting that we supply and you will be able to activate it anytime with only a couple of clicks, so you will be able to employ script apps that require it. You are able to do that through the PHP Configuration area of the Hepsia Control Panel and all it takes to enable or deactivate ionCube is to click a button. The change will take effect in a minute, therefore you are able to go ahead and set up the application that you would like right away. The exact same section allows you to change the PHP version that is active for your account, as we support several versions on our cutting-edge cloud platform. In case you move to a version that you haven't used so far, you'll have to activate ionCube Loader again. Experienced users will be able to use a php.ini file in a particular domain folder to set a PHP version different from the one for the whole account or enable/disable ionCube Loader.

IonCube in Semi-dedicated Hosting

As all 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 which needs this software tool in order to work effectively. With just a few clicks in the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel you're able to activate or deactivate ionCube for the PHP version that is currently active for your account. As we support a couple of versions of PHP at the same time, you'll have to do this every time you move to a different version, 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. When you have several sites in the same account and they require different versions of PHP, you can create a php.ini file in every single domain folder and with a couple of lines of program code you will be able to define both the PHP release as well as the status of ionCube irrespective of what is selected for the hosting account altogether.
