A lot of script-driven apps, particularly paid cms, encode their files so as to make sure that they won't be reverse engineered or tampered with. Most of them use an app named ionCube PHP Encoder to do that, so when you get a paid script and you'd like to set it up in a web hosting account, an instrument known as ionCube Loader needs to be present on the server. Without it, you can't install the script or in case you somehow find a way to do that, it won't function appropriately for the reason that most of the script code will be encoded to a degree where it cannot be interpreted. That's why, you should ensure that ionCube Loader is set up if you get a fresh website hosting account and you'd like to take advantage of some paid web app. If you obtain a shared web hosting account and the tool is not present, it can't be added because the whole server PHP environment shall have to be compiled again.

IonCube in Cloud Hosting

IonCube Loader is supplied with each and every Linux cloud hosting that we supply and you will be able to activate it at any time with just a few clicks, so you will be able to employ script applications that need it. You're able to do this from the PHP Configuration section of the Hepsia Control Panel and all it takes 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 application that you need right away. The very same section will allow you to switch the PHP release that is active for your account, because we support numerous releases on our advanced cloud hosting platform. If you move to a release that you've never used to date, you will need to enable ionCube Loader again. Experienced users can use a php.ini file in a particular domain folder in order to set a PHP release different from the one for the whole account or enable/disable ionCube Loader.

IonCube in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Because all 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 that needs this software tool to function effectively. With just a few clicks in the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel you can activate or deactivate ionCube for the PHP version that is currently active for your account. Since we support several releases of PHP concurrently, you'll need to do that each and every time you switch to a new release, 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. If you have several sites in the same account and they need different versions of PHP, you're able to create a php.ini file in every single domain folder and with several lines of code you are able to define both the PHP version plus the status of ionCube no matter what is selected for the hosting account as a whole.
