A lot of script-driven apps, especially paid cms, encrypt their files in order to ensure that they will not be reverse engineered or tampered with. The majority of them use an application named ionCube PHP Encoder to do this, so, in case you buy a paid script and you would like to install it in a hosting account, a software tool known as ionCube Loader has to be present on your server. Without this, you will not be able to install the script or if you somehow manage to do this, it won't operate efficiently because almost all of the script code will be encrypted to a point where it can't be interpreted. In this light, you have to ensure that ionCube Loader is set up when you get a new web hosting account and you wish to work with some paid web application. If you get a shared website hosting account and the instrument is not present, it cannot be added because the whole server PHP environment shall have to be compiled again.

IonCube in Website Hosting

IonCube Loader is supplied with each and every website hosting that we offer and you can enable it at any time with just a few clicks, so you will be able to work with script applications which require it. You're able to do this through the PHP Configuration area of your Hepsia Control Panel and all it will take to activate or disable ionCube is to click a single button. The change will take effect within a minute, so you will be able to go ahead and set up the app that you would like without delay. The very same section allows you to change the PHP release that's active for your account, because we support numerous versions on our leading-edge cloud hosting platform. If you move to a version that you haven't used so far, you'll need to enable ionCube Loader again. Experienced users can use a php.ini file in a specific domain folder in order to set a PHP release different from the one for the whole account or enable/disable ionCube Loader.

IonCube in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you purchase a semi-dedicated server plan from our company, you can employ any script-driven application that requires ionCube Loader due to the fact that the tool is available on all of the servers which are part of our revolutionary cloud hosting platform. Furthermore, we support different versions of PHP, which means that if you move from PHP 4 to 5.2 or 5.3, for example, you can enable ionCube for this particular version with only a click in your Hepsia Control Panel. Our platform will remember your decision, and if you move back to the earlier release of PHP, the software instrument will already be active. For more experienced users, we also offer the option to choose the PHP version and if ionCube will be active or not for a specific domain without altering the settings for the entire website hosting account. This is done by putting a php.ini file inside a domain folder with a few lines of code.
