Plenty of script-driven apps, especially paid cms, encrypt their files in order to make sure that they will not be reverse engineered or tampered with. The majority of them use an application known as ionCube PHP Encoder to do that, so, in case you purchase a paid script and you'd like to set it up in a web hosting account, a tool called ionCube Loader must be present on the server. Without having it, you cannot install the script or in case you somehow manage to do this, it won't function effectively due to the fact that most of the script code will be encrypted to a point where it cannot be interpreted. That is why, you need to ensure that ionCube Loader is present if you get a fresh website hosting account and you wish to use some paid web application. If you get a shared web hosting account and the instrument is not present, it can't be added because your entire server PHP environment will have to be compiled again.

IonCube in Shared Website Hosting

IonCube Loader is supplied with each Linux shared website hosting package that we supply and you will be able to activate it at any time with only a couple of clicks, so you will be able to employ script applications which require it. You will be able to do this from the PHP Configuration area of the Hepsia Control Panel and all it takes to enable or deactivate ionCube is to click a button. The change will take effect in a minute, therefore you can go ahead and set up the app that you need right away. The exact same section allows you to change the PHP version that is active for your account, because we support a number of versions on our cutting-edge cloud hosting platform. In case you move to a release that you have not used so far, you'll have to enable ionCube Loader once again. Experienced users will be able to use a php.ini file in a particular domain folder to set a PHP version different from the one for the whole account or enable/disable ionCube Loader.

IonCube in Semi-dedicated Hosting

IonCube Loader is provided with all of the Linux semi-dedicated hosting packages that we offer, so you will not experience any problems in case you'd like to install and use some script application which requires the software tool so as to operate appropriately. Activating it is as simple as clicking a button in the Advanced part of the Hepsia Control Panel that comes with all the semi-dedicated accounts and the change will take effect in a minute, so you will be able to move forward with the app installation without any delays. Due to the fact that we use a hi-tech in-house built platform and we support several versions of PHP at the same time, you'll need to activate ionCube every time you move to a version that you have not used before. You will also have the option to activate ionCube loader and even to set a PHP release different from the one in the account as a whole by making a php.ini file in an individual domain or subdomain folder and adding several lines of program code inside it.
