A lot of script-driven applications, particularly paid cms, encrypt their files in order to make sure that they will not be reverse engineered or tampered with. Most of them use an application known as ionCube PHP Encoder to do that, so when you purchase a paid script and you wish to set it up in a website hosting account, an instrument known as ionCube Loader has to be present on your server. Without this, you will not be able to install the script or in case you somehow find a way to do this, it will not function efficiently because almost all of the script code will be encoded to a degree where it can't be interpreted. That's why, you should make sure that ionCube Loader is present if you get a fresh hosting account and you would like to use some paid web application. If you purchase a shared website hosting account and the tool is not present, it cannot be added because your entire server PHP environment shall have to be compiled again.
IonCube in Cloud Website Hosting
IonCube Loader comes with all cloud website hosting packages which we offer, so any time you need it in order to install and run a script app that needs it, you can activate it with a single click from the Advanced area of the Hepsia Control Panel. Because you can switch the PHP version which is active for your account from the same section, you'll have to enable the tool for every new version that you set. When you're more experienced, you're able to employ a php.ini file in a domain or subdomain folder and set both the PHP version and the status of ionCube Loader for that particular website only, without affecting the entire account. Thus you will be able to manage both new and older script applications for multiple sites inside the same account - a thing that you can't do with lots of other hosting providers on the market.
IonCube in Semi-dedicated Servers
Because all of 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 requires this software tool in order to function properly. With several clicks in the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel you can activate or deactivate ionCube for the PHP version that is currently active for the account. Because we support multiple versions of PHP at the same time, you'll have to do that any time you move to a different version, and when you revert back to a version which you've already used, our system will remember your choice and ionCube Loader will already be activated. In case 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 a couple of lines of code you're able to define both the PHP release as well as the status of ionCube no matter what is selected for the hosting account altogether.
