Plenty of script-driven apps, especially paid cms, encrypt their files to make sure that they won't be reverse engineered or tampered with. Most of them use an application named ionCube PHP Encoder to do that, so when you get a paid script and you would like to set it up in a website hosting account, a software tool called ionCube Loader has to be present on your server. Without this, you cannot install the script or in case you somehow find a way to do this, it won't operate appropriately because almost all of the script code will be encrypted to a degree where it can't be interpreted. In this light, you need to make sure that ionCube Loader is set up when you get a fresh website hosting account and you would like to use some paid web app. If you get a shared hosting account and the instrument is not present, it can't be added as your entire server PHP environment will have to be compiled again.

IonCube in Shared Web Hosting

IonCube Loader is provided with all the shared web hosting packages which we supply, so if you require it in order to install and execute a script app that needs it, you can activate it with a click inside the Advanced section of the Hepsia Control Panel. Because you'll be able to switch the PHP version that's active for your account from the same section, you need to activate the tool for each new version which you set. When you're more skillful, you're able to use a php.ini file in a domain or subdomain folder and set the PHP version as well as the status of ionCube Loader for this particular site only, without affecting the whole account. Thus you will be able to operate both new and older script applications for multiple sites within the same account - something that you can't do with lots of other website hosting service providers available on the market.

IonCube in Semi-dedicated Hosting

IonCube Loader is provided with all of the Linux semi-dedicated hosting packages that we supply, and you will not have any problems if you would like to install and use a script application that requires the software instrument in order to operate properly. Activating it is as simple as clicking a button in the Advanced area of the Hepsia Control Panel which comes with all of the semi-dedicated accounts and the change will take effect in less than a minute, so you're able to proceed with the application installation without any delays. Due to the fact that we use a cutting-edge in-house made platform and we support several versions of PHP simultaneously, you'll have to activate ionCube every 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 making a php.ini file in an individual domain or subdomain folder and adding a few lines of program code within it.
