Plenty of script-driven apps, particularly paid cms, encrypt their files to ensure that they won't be reverse engineered or tampered with. The majority of them use an app called ionCube PHP Encoder to do this, so if you acquire a paid script and you intend to set it up in a web hosting account, a tool called ionCube Loader needs to be present on your server. Without it, you can't install the script or in case you somehow find a way to do this, it won't function appropriately since most of the script code will be encoded to a point where it cannot be interpreted. That is why, you have to ensure that ionCube Loader is present if you get a new hosting account and you want to use some paid web application. If you purchase a shared web hosting account and the tool is not present, it cannot be added as the entire server PHP environment will have to be compiled again.
IonCube in Website Hosting
When you get a Linux website hosting from us, it will be set up on our custom-made cloud platform where ionCube Loader is already present, so you will not have any kind of problems to manage any script application which requires the tool so as to function appropriately. Furthermore, we offer a few different versions of PHP, therefore if you change the version, you will have to activate ionCube once again. Our system remembers the changes you make, so if you switch back to the earlier release of PHP which was active for your account, ionCube Loader will already be turned on. Both the PHP version as well as the ionCube instrument can be operated from the PHP Configuration area of our Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Any change that you make takes literally just a mouse-click and it takes effect right away.
IonCube in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Because all semi-dedicated server accounts are created on our advanced cluster platform and ionCube Loader is available on it, you shall be able to use any script app that needs this tool so as to work effectively. With several clicks in the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel you can activate or deactivate ionCube for the PHP version that's currently active for your account. Since we support several versions of PHP simultaneously, you'll need to do this every time you move to a different release, and if you revert back to a version which you have already used, our system will remember your choice and ionCube Loader will already be active. When you have multiple websites in the same account and they need different versions of PHP, you'll be able to set up a php.ini file in every single domain folder and with a couple of lines of program code you are able to define both the PHP release plus the status of ionCube no matter what is selected for the hosting account as a whole.
