A lot of script-driven applications, particularly paid content management systems, encode their files to make sure that they won't be reverse engineered or tampered with. Many of them use an app known as ionCube PHP Encoder to do that, so, in case you get a paid script and you wish to install it in a hosting account, a software instrument known as ionCube Loader must be present on the server. Without having it, you won't be able to install the script or if you somehow find a way to do this, it will not work appropriately for the reason that almost all of the script code will be encoded to a degree where it cannot be interpreted. That is why, you should make sure that ionCube Loader is installed if you get a fresh hosting account and you would like to work with some paid web app. If you buy a shared hosting account and the instrument is not present, it can't be added because the whole server PHP environment will have to be compiled again.
IonCube in Hosting
If you buy a hosting from our company, it'll be set up on our custom-built cloud hosting platform where ionCube Loader is already present, so you won't have any kind of problems to manage any script application which requires the tool to function appropriately. We also provide a few different versions of PHP, so in case you change the version, you'll need to activate ionCube again. Our platform remembers the adjustments you make, so if you go back to the previous release of PHP that was active for your account, ionCube Loader will already be enabled. Both the PHP version and the ionCube instrument can be operated from the PHP Configuration section of our Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Any change that you do takes literally just a click and it will take effect instantly.
IonCube in Semi-dedicated Servers
In case you purchase a semi-dedicated server package from our company, you will be able to use any kind of script-driven application which requires ionCube Loader because the software tool is installed on all of the servers that are a part of our state-of-the-art cloud website hosting platform. Furthermore, we support multiple releases of PHP, so if you switch from PHP 4 to 5.2 or 5.3, for instance, you can activate ionCube for that particular release with only a click from your Hepsia Control Panel. Our system will remember your decision, so if you switch back to the previous release of PHP, the tool will already be active. For more tech-savvy users, we also provide the option to pick the PHP version and if ionCube will be active or not for a specific domain name without altering the settings for the whole website hosting account. This can be done by placing a php.ini file within a domain folder with several lines of code.
