Lots of script-driven applications, particularly paid content management systems, encrypt their files to ensure that they won't be reverse engineered or tampered with. Many of them use an application called ionCube PHP Encoder to do this, so if you acquire a paid script and you'd like to install it in a hosting account, an instrument known as ionCube Loader has to be present on the server. Without this, you cannot install the script or if you somehow manage to do this, it won't operate properly because most of the script code will be encoded to a degree where it can't be interpreted. That's why, you need to ensure that ionCube Loader is installed if you get a new web hosting account and you wish to use some paid web application. If you acquire a shared hosting account and the instrument is not present, it can't be added since the entire server PHP environment will have to be compiled again.

IonCube in Cloud Hosting

When you obtain a Linux cloud hosting package through our company, it will be set up on our custom-built cloud platform where ionCube Loader is already set up, so you will not have any problems to manage any script app that requires the tool to function appropriately. In addition, we offer several different versions of PHP, therefore if you change the version, you will have to activate ionCube once again. Our system remembers the changes you make, which means that when you go back to the earlier version of PHP which was active for your account, ionCube Loader will already be activated. The PHP version and the ionCube tool can be managed through the PHP Configuration area of our Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. Each change that you make takes literally just a mouse-click and it will take effect instantly.

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 will be able to use any script application that needs this tool to run properly. With several clicks in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel you can activate or deactivate ionCube for the PHP version that's currently active for your account. Because we support a couple of releases of PHP simultaneously, you'll have to do that each and every time you move to a different version, but if you revert back to a version which you've already used, our system will remember your preference and ionCube Loader will already be activated. If you have multiple websites inside the same account and they require different releases of PHP, you'll be able to create a php.ini file in every single domain folder and with several lines of program code you are able to define both the PHP version and the status of ionCube irrespective of what is selected for the hosting account altogether.
