Lots of script-driven apps, especially paid cms, encode their files to ensure that they will not be reverse engineered or tampered with. Most of them use an application called ionCube PHP Encoder to do this, so if you obtain a paid script and you want to set it up in a website hosting account, a software tool known as ionCube Loader has to be present on your server. Without this, you won't be able to install the script or in case you somehow find a way to do this, it will not work effectively since most of the script code will be encrypted to a degree where it can't be interpreted. In this light, you should make sure that ionCube Loader is present when you get a new website hosting account and you would like to employ some paid web application. If you get a shared website hosting account and the instrument is not present, it cannot be added as the entire server PHP environment will have to be compiled again.

IonCube in Cloud Hosting

IonCube Loader comes with all of the cloud hosting plans that we supply, so any time you need it in order to set up and run a script app which requires it, you can activate it with a single click in the Advanced section of your Hepsia Control Panel. Due to the fact that you're able to change the PHP version which is active for your account from the same section, you need to enable the tool for each new version which you set. When you're more experienced, you can take advantage of a php.ini file in a domain or subdomain folder and set both the PHP version and the status of ionCube Loader for this particular site only, without affecting the whole account. In this way you're able to manage both new and older script applications for multiple sites within the same account - something that you won't be able to do with various other web hosting suppliers available on the market.

IonCube in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Each and every semi-dedicated server account which is set up on our cutting-edge cloud website hosting platform includes ionCube Loader support, which means that you can install any kind of script application that requires the tool. Then use it to launch and maintain your web presence. You can activate ionCube from the PHP Configuration area of the Control Panel and it'll take you only a couple of clicks to do this. Your change will take effect instantly, which means that you're able to proceed and set up the needed script inside your account. If you choose to change the PHP version that's active for the account, you should activate ionCube for the new version too. Our custom platform also allows you to have a different PHP release for each and every domain or subdomain, that is done with a php.ini file in every domain folder. In the same way, you can enable/disable ionCube Loader for each individual website hosted in your semi-dedicated account.
