Lots of script-driven apps, especially paid cms, encrypt their files to make sure that they will not be reverse engineered or tampered with. Many of them use an application named ionCube PHP Encoder to do this, so when you obtain a paid script and you would like to install it in a website hosting account, a software tool known as ionCube Loader has to be present on your server. Without it, you will not be able to install the script or if you somehow manage to do that, it will not operate effectively due to the fact that almost all of the script code will be encrypted to a degree where it cannot be interpreted. In this light, you should ensure that ionCube Loader is set up when you get a fresh hosting account and you want to use some paid web application. If you get a shared website hosting account and the tool is not present, it can't be added since the entire server PHP environment shall have to be compiled again.
IonCube in Website Hosting
IonCube Loader is supplied with each and every Linux website hosting that we offer and you'll be able to activate it anytime with just a few clicks, so you will be able to use script applications that need it. You'll be able to do that through the PHP Configuration area of your Hepsia Control Panel and all it takes to enable or disable ionCube is to click a single button. The change will take effect within a minute, therefore you're able to go ahead and set up the application that you'd like right away. The same section will allow you to change the PHP version that is active for your account, because we support numerous releases on our cutting-edge cloud hosting platform. In case you switch to a release that you haven't used to date, you will have to activate ionCube Loader again. More advanced users can use a php.ini file in a particular domain folder to set a PHP release different from the one for the entire account or enable/disable ionCube Loader.
IonCube in Semi-dedicated Hosting
As all the semi-dedicated server accounts are set up on our advanced cluster platform and ionCube Loader is available on it, you'll be able to use any script application which needs this tool so as to run effectively. With just a few clicks in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel you'll be able to activate or deactivate ionCube for the PHP version which is currently active for the account. Because we support a couple of versions of PHP simultaneously, you'll need to do that any time you move to a different version, and if you revert back to a version that you have already used, our system will remember your choice and ionCube Loader will already be active. In case you have a couple of sites inside the same account and they require different versions of PHP, you will be able to create a php.ini file in each and every domain folder and with a couple of lines of code you'll be able to define both the PHP release plus the status of ionCube irrespective of what is selected for the website hosting account as a whole.
