A lot 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 application named ionCube PHP Encoder to do that, so when you buy a paid script and you'd like to install it in a website hosting account, a software instrument known as ionCube Loader has to be present on your server. Without it, you can't install the script or if you somehow find a way to do this, it won't operate properly for the reason that almost all of the script code will be encoded to a degree where it cannot be interpreted. In this light, you need to ensure that ionCube Loader is present when you get a fresh hosting account and you'd like to take advantage of some paid web app. If you purchase a shared hosting account and the instrument is not present, it can't be added because the whole server PHP environment shall have to be compiled again.

IonCube in Website Hosting

If you purchase a Linux website hosting service through us, it'll be set up on our custom-built cloud platform where ionCube Loader is already installed, so you won't have any problems to run any script application which requires the tool in order to function appropriately. We also offer several different releases of PHP, which means that in case you switch the version, you need to activate ionCube again. Our platform remembers the changes you make, which means that when you move back to the earlier version of PHP which was active for your account, ionCube Loader will already be enabled. The PHP version and the ionCube instrument can be managed from the PHP Configuration part of our Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. Any change that you do takes literally just a click and it'll take effect at once.

IonCube in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you buy a semi-dedicated server plan from us, you will be able to employ any script-driven application which needs ionCube Loader due to the fact that the software tool is installed on all of the servers that are part of our modern cloud website hosting platform. We also support various releases of PHP, and if you move from PHP 4 to 5.2 or 5.3, for instance, you can enable ionCube for this particular version with just a click in your Hepsia Control Panel. Our system will remember your decision, so if you move back to the previous release of PHP, the software instrument will already be active. For more tech-savvy users, we also offer the option to pick the PHP version and whether ionCube will be active or not for a specific domain name without altering the settings for the whole hosting account. This can be done by putting a php.ini file in a domain folder with several lines of program code.
