A lot of script-driven applications, particularly paid content management systems, encode their files to make sure that they will not be reverse engineered or tampered with. The majority of them use an app known as ionCube PHP Encoder to do that, so when you obtain a paid script and you want to install it in a hosting account, an instrument known as ionCube Loader needs to 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 function appropriately because most of the script code will be encoded to a point where it cannot be interpreted. In this light, you have to ensure that ionCube Loader is installed when you get a new hosting account and you want to work with some paid web app. If you obtain a shared web hosting account and the instrument is not present, it cannot be added since your entire server PHP environment will have to be compiled again.

IonCube in Hosting

When you purchase a hosting service from us, it'll be set up on our in-house made cloud platform where ionCube Loader is already present, so you will not have any problems to manage any script application that needs the tool so as to run appropriately. Furthermore, we provide several different releases of PHP, so in case you change the version, you need to activate ionCube once again. Our system remembers the changes you make, and in case you go back to the previous release of PHP that was active for your account, ionCube Loader will already be enabled. The PHP version as well as the ionCube instrument can be managed through the PHP Configuration section of our Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. Each change that you make takes literally just a single click and it'll take effect without delay.

IonCube in Semi-dedicated Servers

Since all semi-dedicated server accounts are created on our advanced cluster platform and ionCube Loader is available on it, you'll be able to use any script application which requires this tool so as to work effectively. With several clicks in the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel you can activate or deactivate ionCube for the PHP version that is currently active for the account. Because we support a couple of releases of PHP concurrently, you'll have to do this every time you switch to a different release, but when you revert back to a version which you've already used, our system will remember your preference and ionCube Loader will already be activated. In case you have several websites in the same account and they need different versions of PHP, you will be able to set up a php.ini file in each domain folder and with several lines of program code you will be able to define both the PHP release and the status of ionCube no matter what is selected for the web hosting account altogether.
