A lot of script-driven applications, particularly paid content management systems, encrypt their files to make sure that they will not be reverse engineered or tampered with. Many of them use an app called ionCube PHP Encoder to do this, so, in case you acquire a paid script and you would like to install it in a web hosting account, an instrument known as ionCube Loader must 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 function effectively due to the fact that most of the script code will be encrypted to a point where it can't be interpreted. In this light, you should make sure that ionCube Loader is set up if you get a fresh hosting account and you'd like to use some paid web application. If you get a shared web hosting account and the instrument is not present, it cannot be added since the whole server PHP environment shall have to be compiled again.

IonCube in Cloud Web Hosting

IonCube Loader is supplied with each and every cloud web hosting service that we provide and you are able to activate it anytime with just a couple of clicks, so you can employ script apps that need it. You'll be able to do this through the PHP Configuration area of your Hepsia Control Panel and all it will take to enable or deactivate ionCube is to click a single button. The change will take effect in a minute, which means that you're able to go ahead and install the app that you'd like without delay. The same section allows you to change the PHP release that is active for your account, as we support several versions on our leading-edge cloud platform. If you switch to a version that you haven't used to date, you will need to activate ionCube Loader once again. Experienced users will be able to use a php.ini file in a specific domain folder in order to set a PHP release different from the one for the entire account or enable/disable ionCube Loader.

IonCube in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Because all the semi-dedicated server accounts are created on our advanced cluster platform and ionCube Loader is available on it, you will be able to use any script application which requires the tool to work efficiently. With several clicks in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel you are able to activate or deactivate ionCube for the PHP version which is currently active for the account. Since we support several versions of PHP simultaneously, you will need to do this any time you switch to a new version, but when you revert back to a release which you have already used, our system will remember your choice and ionCube Loader will already be activated. When you have several sites inside the same account and they need different versions of PHP, you can create a php.ini file in each domain folder and with several lines of code you are able to define both the PHP version plus the status of ionCube regardless of what is selected for the website hosting account as a whole.
