Plenty of script-driven applications, particularly paid cms, encrypt their files to ensure that they won't be reverse engineered or tampered with. Many of them use an app known as ionCube PHP Encoder to do this, so if you purchase a paid script and you wish to set it up in a web hosting account, a tool known as ionCube Loader must be present on your server. Without it, you can't install the script or in case you somehow manage to do this, it won't operate appropriately because most of the script code will be encoded to a degree where it cannot be interpreted. That's why, you should make sure that ionCube Loader is installed when you get a fresh hosting account and you'd like to take advantage of some paid web application. If you acquire a shared web hosting account and the instrument is not present, it can't be added since your entire server PHP environment will have to be compiled again.
IonCube in Cloud Hosting
IonCube Loader is a part of all web servers that are a part of our cloud web hosting platform, so whatever the Linux cloud hosting that you pick during the signup process, you can activate it from the Hepsia Control Panel. This process is as simple as clicking an On/Off button in the Advanced section, so even if this is your first website hosting account ever, you won't have to do anything complicated. The same section will allow you to pick the PHP release for your account (4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4, 5.5), which means that if you want to move to another version, you only need to activate ionCube Loader for it as well. Because our platform is very flexible, you can set another PHP version and a different status of ionCube by employing a php.ini file in every domain folder. If this is something you wish to do but you don't have much experience, our 24/7 technical support team will be able to assist you in no time.
IonCube in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Because all the semi-dedicated server accounts are created on our advanced cluster platform and ionCube Loader is available on it, you'll be able to use any script application which needs the tool to function efficiently. With just a few clicks in your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel you are able to activate or deactivate ionCube for the PHP version which is currently active for your account. As we support multiple releases of PHP concurrently, you'll need to do this any time you switch to a new release, but if you revert back to a version which you've already used, our system will remember your choice and ionCube Loader will already be active. When you have a couple of sites inside the same account and they need different versions of PHP, you can set up a php.ini file in each domain folder and with several lines of code you can define both the PHP version plus the status of ionCube no matter what is selected for the web hosting account as a whole.
