Lots of script-driven apps, especially paid content management systems, encode 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 that, so, in case you obtain a paid script and you intend to set it up in a web hosting account, a tool known as ionCube Loader has to be present on the server. Without this, you won't be able to install the script or if you somehow manage to do that, it won't function efficiently due to the fact that almost all of the script code will be encrypted to a point where it cannot be interpreted. That is why, you have to make sure that ionCube Loader is set up when you get a fresh website hosting account and you would like to take advantage of some paid web application. If you get a shared website hosting account and the tool is not present, it cannot be added because the entire server PHP environment shall have to be compiled again.

IonCube in Cloud Hosting

If you obtain a cloud hosting service from our company, it will be set up on our tailor-made cloud hosting platform where ionCube Loader is already installed, so you will not have any kind of problems to manage any script app which requires the tool so as to function properly. In addition, we offer several different releases of PHP, therefore in case you change the version, you'll have to activate ionCube once again. Our system remembers the changes you make, so if you switch back to the previous version of PHP which was active for your account, ionCube Loader will already be enabled. The PHP version and the ionCube tool can be managed through the PHP Configuration part of our Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. Any adjustment that you make takes literally just a mouse-click and it'll take effect right away.

IonCube in Semi-dedicated Servers

IonCube Loader is available with all the Linux semi-dedicated servers that we supply, so you won't encounter any kind of problems if you would like to set up and work with a script application that requires the tool in order to function appropriately. Enabling it is as easy as clicking a single button in the Advanced area of the Hepsia Control Panel that comes with all the semi-dedicated accounts and the change shall take effect in a minute, which means that you're able to proceed with the app set up without delay. Because we use a hi-tech custom-built platform and we support a number of versions of PHP simultaneously, you will need to activate ionCube every time you move to a version that you haven't used before. In addition, you'll have the option to activate ionCube loader and even to set a PHP version different from the one in the account as a whole by creating a php.ini file in a separate domain or subdomain folder and adding several lines of program code inside it.
