A lot of script-driven apps, particularly paid content management systems, encrypt their files to ensure that they will not be reverse engineered or tampered with. Most of them use an application named ionCube PHP Encoder to do this, so if you acquire a paid script and you'd like to install it in a web hosting account, a software instrument known as ionCube Loader must be present on your server. Without having it, you will not be able to install the script or in case you somehow find a way to do this, it won't operate properly as most of the script code will be encrypted to a degree where it cannot be interpreted. That's why, you have to ensure that ionCube Loader is present when you get a new website hosting account and you'd like to use some paid web application. If you buy a shared web hosting account and the tool is not present, it can't be added because your entire server PHP environment will have to be compiled again.

IonCube in Cloud Hosting

If you buy a cloud hosting plan through us, it'll be created on our custom-made cloud hosting platform where ionCube Loader is already set up, so you will not have any problems to manage any script application that needs the tool in order to function properly. In addition, we provide several different releases of PHP, so if you switch the version, you will have to enable ionCube once again. Our platform remembers the changes you make, which means that in case you switch back to the earlier version of PHP which was active for your account, ionCube Loader will already be activated. Both the PHP version and the ionCube instrument can be operated through the PHP Configuration area of our Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. Each adjustment that you make takes literally just a mouse-click and it'll take effect right away.

IonCube in Semi-dedicated Servers

IonCube Loader is provided with all semi-dedicated hosting plans that we offer, and you won't encounter any problems in case you would like to set up and work with some script app that requires the tool in order to function appropriately. Activating it is as easy as clicking a button in the Advanced area of the Hepsia Control Panel that comes with all the semi-dedicated accounts and the change shall take effect in less than a minute, so you can proceed with the app set up without delay. Due to the fact that we employ a cutting-edge in-house made platform and we support a number of versions of PHP simultaneously, you'll need to activate ionCube any time you switch to a version that you have not used before. Additionally, you have the option to activate ionCube loader and even to set a PHP release different from the one in the account as a whole by making a php.ini file in an individual domain or subdomain folder and adding a few lines of program code within it.
