Plenty of script-driven applications, particularly paid cms, encode their files in order to ensure that they will not be reverse engineered or tampered with. Most of them use an app named ionCube PHP Encoder to do this, so when you purchase a paid script and you would like to set it up in a website hosting account, an instrument called ionCube Loader must be present on the server. Without this, you won't be able to install the script or in case you somehow manage to do that, it won't work appropriately because most of the script code will be encrypted to a point where it cannot be interpreted. That's why, you have to make sure that ionCube Loader is set up if you get a fresh website hosting account and you'd like to use some paid web app. If you get a shared hosting account and the tool is not present, it cannot be added because the entire server PHP environment will have to be compiled again.
IonCube in Cloud Hosting
When you obtain a cloud plan from us, it will be set up on our tailor-made cloud hosting platform where ionCube Loader is already set up, so you won't have any kind of problems to manage any script app that needs the instrument in order to run properly. Furthermore, we offer a few different releases of PHP, so if you switch the version, you need to activate ionCube once again. Our platform remembers the adjustments you make, so when you move back to the previous release of PHP that was active for your account, ionCube Loader will already be enabled. Both the PHP version as well as the ionCube instrument can be operated through the PHP Configuration section of our Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Every adjustment that you do takes literally just a single click and it will take effect at once.
IonCube in Semi-dedicated Servers
IonCube Loader is available with all the semi-dedicated hosting plans that we supply, which means that you won't experience any kind of problems if you would like to set up and use some script app that requires the software tool to function properly. Enabling it is as simple as clicking a single button inside the Advanced area of the Hepsia Control Panel which comes with all the semi-dedicated accounts and the change will take effect in a minute, so you can proceed with the application installation without delay. Because we use a revolutionary in-house made platform and we support many different versions of PHP at the same time, you will have to enable ionCube any time you switch to a version that you have not used before. You will also have the option to enable ionCube loader and even to set a PHP release different from the one in the account as a whole by generating a php.ini file in a separate domain or subdomain folder and adding a few lines of program code in it.
