Lots of script-driven apps, especially paid content management systems, encode their files to make sure that they won't be reverse engineered or tampered with. Many of them use an app called ionCube PHP Encoder to do this, so, in case you purchase a paid script and you would like to set it up in a website hosting account, a tool known as ionCube Loader must be present on the 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 will not operate appropriately due to the fact that most of the script code will be encoded to a point where it can't be interpreted. That is why, you have to ensure that ionCube Loader is present when you get a fresh web hosting account and you want to use some paid web application. If you buy a shared website hosting account and the tool is not present, it can't be added because the entire server PHP environment will have to be compiled again.

IonCube in Cloud Website Hosting

IonCube Loader is supplied with each and every Linux cloud website hosting package that we supply and you can enable it anytime with just a couple of clicks, so you will be able to use script apps which require it. You can do that through the PHP Configuration area of the Hepsia Control Panel and all it'll take to activate or disable ionCube is to click a single button. The change will take effect within a minute, so you are able to go ahead and set up the app that you need right away. The exact same section will allow you to switch the PHP release that is active for your account, as we support a variety of releases on our state-of-the-art cloud platform. In case you switch to a version that you have never used so far, you will have to activate ionCube Loader once again. Experienced users will be able to use a php.ini file in a particular domain folder so as to set a PHP version different from the one for the whole account or enable/disable ionCube Loader.

IonCube in Semi-dedicated Hosting

IonCube Loader is available with all of the semi-dedicated hosting that we supply, and you will not have any kind of problems in case you'd like to install and work with some script app which requires the tool to operate appropriately. Enabling it is as easy as clicking a single button in the Advanced section of the Hepsia Control Panel which comes with all the semi-dedicated accounts and the change will take effect in a minute, so you will be able to move forward with the application set up without delay. For the reason that we employ an innovative custom-built platform and we support several versions of PHP simultaneously, you'll need to activate ionCube every time you move to a version that you have not used before. In addition, you'll have the option to enable ionCube loader and even to set a PHP release different from the one in the account as a whole by generating a php.ini file in a separate domain or subdomain folder and adding a few lines of program code inside it.
