Plenty of script-driven apps, particularly paid content management systems, encode their files to make sure that they won't be reverse engineered or tampered with. The majority of them use an application named ionCube PHP Encoder to do that, so if you buy a paid script and you wish to install it in a hosting account, a software instrument called ionCube Loader must be present on the server. Without this, you cannot install the script or in case you somehow manage to do this, it will not work properly for the reason that most of the script code will be encrypted to a point where it cannot be interpreted. In this light, you need to make sure that ionCube Loader is present when you get a new hosting account and you want to work with some paid web app. If you acquire a shared hosting account and the instrument is not present, it can't be added as your entire server PHP environment will have to be compiled again.

IonCube in Cloud Hosting

If you purchase a cloud hosting from our company, it will be set up on our in-house made cloud platform where ionCube Loader is already present, so you will not have any problems to manage any script app that requires the tool in order to function appropriately. We also provide several different releases of PHP, which means that if you change the version, you'll have to activate ionCube once again. Our system remembers the adjustments you make, which means that when 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 managed through the PHP Configuration area of our Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. Each adjustment that you do takes literally just a single click and it'll take effect without delay.

IonCube in Semi-dedicated Hosting

As all semi-dedicated server accounts are set up on our advanced cluster platform and ionCube Loader is available on it, you'll be able to use any script app which requires this tool in order to run effectively. With several clicks in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel you're able to activate or deactivate ionCube for the PHP version which is currently active for your account. Because we support multiple versions of PHP simultaneously, you'll need to do that each and every time you move to a new version, and when you revert back to a version that you have already used, our system will remember your preference and ionCube Loader will already be active. When you have multiple websites inside the same account and they need different versions of PHP, you are able to set up a php.ini file in each domain folder and with several lines of program code you will be able to define both the PHP release and the status of ionCube no matter what is selected for the hosting account as a whole.
