A lot of script-driven apps, particularly paid content management systems, encrypt their files so as to ensure 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 when you get a paid script and you wish to install it in a website hosting account, an instrument known as ionCube Loader must be present on your server. Without having it, you can't install the script or in case you somehow manage to do this, it won't function appropriately for the reason that almost all of the script code will be encrypted to a point where it can't be interpreted. In this light, you need to make sure that ionCube Loader is set up if you get a fresh website hosting account and you'd like to employ some paid web application. If you acquire a shared website hosting account and the instrument is not present, it cannot be added as your entire server PHP environment will have to be compiled again.

IonCube in Website Hosting

IonCube Loader is supplied with each and every website hosting plan that we offer and you'll be able to enable it anytime with only a couple of clicks, so you'll be able to employ script applications that require it. You can do this through the PHP Configuration area of your Hepsia Control Panel and all it takes to activate or disable ionCube is to click a button. The change will take effect within a minute, which means that you're able to go ahead and install the app that you need without delay. The same section will allow you to switch the PHP release that is active for your account, because we support several releases on our hi-tech cloud platform. In case you move to a version that you have never used to date, you will need to activate ionCube Loader again. Experienced users can use a php.ini file in a particular domain folder in order to set a PHP version different from the one for the whole account or enable/disable ionCube Loader.

IonCube in Semi-dedicated Servers

As all of the semi-dedicated server accounts are set up on our advanced cluster platform and ionCube Loader is available on it, you shall be able to use any script app which needs this tool in order to function effectively. With a couple of clicks in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel you are able to activate or deactivate ionCube for the PHP version which is currently active for your account. Since we support several versions of PHP simultaneously, you will have to do that any time you move to a new release, and when you revert back to a release which you've already used, our system will remember your choice and ionCube Loader will already be active. In case you have multiple sites in the same account and they need different versions of PHP, you can set up a php.ini file in each and every domain folder and with a couple of lines of program code you can define both the PHP release plus the status of ionCube regardless of what is selected for the website hosting account altogether.
