Plenty of script-driven applications, particularly paid content management systems, encrypt their files so as to make sure that they will not be reverse engineered or tampered with. Many of them use an application called ionCube PHP Encoder to do this, so if you buy a paid script and you would like to set it up in a website hosting account, a tool called ionCube Loader has to be present on the server. Without this, you cannot install the script or if you somehow manage to do that, it will not operate properly as most of the script code will be encoded to a degree where it can't be interpreted. In this light, you should make sure that ionCube Loader is installed if you get a fresh web hosting account and you'd like to use some paid web application. If you acquire a shared web hosting account and the tool is not present, it can't be added because the whole server PHP environment will have to be compiled again.

IonCube in Website Hosting

IonCube Loader is supplied with each Linux website hosting package that we offer and you will be able to activate it anytime with only a couple of clicks, so you can work with script applications which require it. You can do that from the PHP Configuration area of the Hepsia Control Panel and all it will take to activate or disable ionCube is to click a single button. The change will take effect in a minute, so you can go ahead and install the app that you'd like right away. The very same section will allow you to change the PHP release which is active for your account, as we support several versions on our advanced cloud hosting platform. In case you move to a release that you've never used so far, you'll have to enable ionCube Loader once again. Experienced users can use a php.ini file in a particular domain folder to set a PHP release different from the one for the entire account or enable/disable ionCube Loader.

IonCube in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Due to the fact that all the 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 which requires this tool so as to function efficiently. With just a few clicks in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel you can activate or deactivate ionCube for the PHP version that is currently active for the account. Because we support multiple releases of PHP concurrently, you will have to do this each time you move to a new release, but if you revert back to a version which you have already used, our system will remember your preference and ionCube Loader will already be activated. If you have multiple sites in the same account and they require different versions of PHP, you're able to set up a php.ini file in every single domain folder and with several lines of program code you're able to define both the PHP release as well as the status of ionCube irrespective of what is selected for the website hosting account as a whole.
