Plenty of script-driven apps, especially paid cms, encrypt their files to ensure that they won't be reverse engineered or tampered with. Many of them use an application called ionCube PHP Encoder to do this, so if you get a paid script and you would like to set it up in a web hosting account, a tool known as ionCube Loader has to be present on your server. Without this, you can't install the script or if you somehow find a way to do this, it won't work properly since most of the script code will be encrypted to a point where it cannot be interpreted. In this light, you should make sure that ionCube Loader is set up when you get a new web hosting account and you'd like to use some paid web app. If you get a shared website hosting account and the tool is not present, it can't be added as the entire server PHP environment will have to be compiled again.

IonCube in Website Hosting

If you buy a Linux website hosting package from our company, it'll be created on our custom-built 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 requires the tool so as to run appropriately. We also offer you a few different releases of PHP, which means that in case you change the version, you need to enable ionCube once again. Our system remembers the changes 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. The PHP version and the ionCube instrument can be operated from the PHP Configuration section of our Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. Any change that you do takes literally just a mouse-click and it will take effect immediately.

IonCube in Semi-dedicated Hosting

IonCube Loader is provided with all of the Linux semi-dedicated packages that we offer, which means that you won't encounter any kind of problems in case you'd like to install and use some script application which requires the software tool to function properly. Enabling it is as easy as clicking a button inside the Advanced section of the Hepsia Control Panel which comes with all of the semi-dedicated accounts and the change will take effect in a minute, so you can move forward with the app set up without delay. Because we use a revolutionary custom-made platform and we support several versions of PHP simultaneously, you will have to activate ionCube any time you move to a version that you have not used before. You will also have the option to activate ionCube loader or even to set a PHP version different from the one in the account as a whole by making a php.ini file in an individual domain or subdomain folder and adding a couple of lines of code inside it.
