A lot of script-driven apps, particularly paid cms, encode their files in order to make sure that they won't be reverse engineered or tampered with. Most of them use an application named ionCube PHP Encoder to do this, so if you acquire a paid script and you intend to install it in a hosting account, a tool called ionCube Loader must 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 won't function appropriately due to the fact that almost all of the script code will be encoded to a degree where it can't be interpreted. That's why, you need to make sure that ionCube Loader is set up when you get a fresh web hosting account and you would like to work with some paid web application. If you get a shared website hosting account and the tool is not present, it cannot be added because the entire server PHP environment shall have to be compiled again.

IonCube in Shared Web Hosting

If you obtain a Linux shared web hosting through us, it will be set up on our in-house built cloud platform where ionCube Loader is already present, so you won't have any kind of problems to manage any script application which needs the instrument so as to run appropriately. We also offer several different versions of PHP, therefore in case you switch the version, you'll have to activate ionCube once again. Our platform remembers the changes you make, so when you go back to the previous release of PHP that was active for your account, ionCube Loader will already be enabled. The PHP version and the ionCube tool can be operated from the PHP Configuration part of our Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. Each adjustment that you make takes literally just a single click and it takes effect immediately.

IonCube in Semi-dedicated Hosting

IonCube Loader is available with all the Linux semi-dedicated services that we supply, so you will not experience any problems if you would like to install and use a script application which requires the software tool in order to function appropriately. Enabling it is as simple as clicking a button inside the Advanced section of the Hepsia Control Panel which comes with all of the semi-dedicated accounts and the change will take effect in less than a minute, therefore you will be able to proceed with the app set up without any delays. As we use an innovative custom-made platform and we support several versions of PHP simultaneously, you'll have to enable ionCube every time you move to a version that you have not used before. Additionally, you have the option to enable ionCube loader or even to set a PHP release different from the one in the account as a whole by generating a php.ini file in an individual domain or subdomain folder and adding a couple of lines of program code within it.
