Lots of script-driven applications, especially paid cms, encrypt their files in order to make sure that they won't be reverse engineered or tampered with. Many of them use an app named ionCube PHP Encoder to do this, so if you acquire a paid script and you'd like to install it in a website hosting account, a tool called ionCube Loader must be present on the server. Without having it, you will not be able to install the script or if you somehow find a way to do this, it will not work efficiently for the reason that most of the script code will be encoded to a point where it cannot be interpreted. That's why, you have to make sure that ionCube Loader is present when you get a fresh website hosting account and you want to employ some paid web application. If you get a shared website hosting account and the tool is not present, it can't be added since your entire server PHP environment will have to be compiled again.
IonCube in Shared Hosting
If you aquire a Linux shared hosting package from our company, it'll be set up on our custom-made cloud platform where ionCube Loader is already set up, so you will not have any problems to manage any script application that needs the tool to run properly. Furthermore, we supply a few different releases of PHP, so in case you change the version, you will need to activate ionCube again. Our system remembers the adjustments you make, which means that if you move back to the earlier release of PHP that was active for your account, ionCube Loader will already be enabled. The PHP version and the ionCube instrument can be managed through the PHP Configuration part of our Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Every change that you make takes literally just a click and it takes effect at once.
IonCube in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Because all of the semi-dedicated server accounts are created on our advanced cluster platform and ionCube Loader is available on it, you shall be able to use any script app that needs this tool in order to function efficiently. With a couple of clicks in your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel you will be able to activate or deactivate ionCube for the PHP version which is currently active for the account. Because we support multiple releases of PHP at the same time, you will have to do that each time you switch to a different release, and when you revert back to a version which you've already used, our system will remember your choice and ionCube Loader will already be activated. When you have a couple of sites inside the same account and they need different releases of PHP, you're able to create a php.ini file in each and every domain folder and with several lines of code you can define both the PHP release as well as the status of ionCube no matter what is selected for the web hosting account altogether.
