Plenty of script-driven apps, especially paid content management systems, encrypt their files so as to ensure that they won't be reverse engineered or tampered with. Many of them use an application named ionCube PHP Encoder to do that, so if you acquire a paid script and you would like to install it in a web hosting account, a software instrument known as ionCube Loader needs to be present on your server. Without this, you can't install the script or in case you somehow manage to do this, it won't operate efficiently due to the fact that most of the script code will be encoded to a degree where it can't be interpreted. That is why, you need to ensure that ionCube Loader is installed when you get a new web hosting account and you would like to employ some paid web application. If you purchase a shared web hosting account and the tool is not present, it can't be added as the entire server PHP environment shall have to be compiled again.

IonCube in Cloud Website Hosting

If you obtain a cloud website hosting package through us, it'll be created on our tailor-made cloud hosting platform where ionCube Loader is already present, so you won't have any problems to manage any script app which needs the tool to function appropriately. We also supply several different versions of PHP, which means that in case you change the version, you'll need to activate ionCube once again. Our platform remembers the adjustments you make, so if you go back to the earlier version of PHP which was active for your account, ionCube Loader will already be turned on. Both the PHP version and the ionCube instrument can be operated from the PHP Configuration area of our Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Any adjustment that you make takes literally just a mouse-click and it'll take effect instantly.

IonCube in Semi-dedicated Hosting

In case you purchase a semi-dedicated server plan from our company, you'll be able to use any kind of script-driven application that needs ionCube Loader due to the fact that the tool is available on all the servers which are part of our modern cloud web hosting platform. Furthermore, we support multiple releases of PHP, so if you switch from PHP 4 to 5.2 or 5.3, for example, you can activate ionCube for that particular version with just a click in your Hepsia Control Panel. Our platform will remember your choice, so if you switch back to the previous version of PHP, the tool will already be active. For more tech-savvy users, we also offer the option to choose the PHP version and whether ionCube will be active or not for a particular domain name without altering the settings for the entire hosting account. This can be done by placing a php.ini file inside a domain folder with several lines of program code.
