Lots of script-driven apps, particularly paid content management systems, encrypt their files to make sure that they won't be reverse engineered or tampered with. Most of them use an application called ionCube PHP Encoder to do this, so, in case you get a paid script and you intend to set it up in a website hosting account, a software instrument known as ionCube Loader needs to be present on the server. Without this, you won't be able to install the script or if you somehow manage to do this, it will not function effectively for the reason that most of the script code will be encoded to a degree where it cannot be interpreted. In this light, you need to make sure that ionCube Loader is installed if you get a new hosting account and you'd like to use some paid web application. If you purchase a shared 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 Shared Hosting
If you obtain a shared hosting through us, it will be set up on our in-house made cloud hosting platform where ionCube Loader is already installed, so you will not have any kind of problems to manage any script app that requires the instrument so as to function appropriately. Furthermore, we provide several different versions of PHP, therefore in case you change the version, you will have to enable ionCube once again. Our system remembers the changes you make, and when you move back to the previous release of PHP which was active for your account, ionCube Loader will already be enabled. The PHP version and the ionCube tool can be managed through the PHP Configuration part of our Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. Any change that you make takes literally just a single click and it'll take effect immediately.
IonCube in Semi-dedicated Servers
IonCube Loader is available with all of the Linux semi-dedicated plans that we provide, and you won't have any problems in case you'd like to set up and work with some script application that requires the software tool in order to function appropriately. Enabling it is as simple as clicking a button in the Advanced section of the Hepsia Control Panel that comes with all of the semi-dedicated accounts and the change shall take effect in a minute, so you're able to move forward with the app installation without any delays. For the reason that we use a revolutionary custom-built platform and we support many different versions of PHP simultaneously, you will have 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 version 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 in it.
