Plenty of script-driven apps, especially paid content management systems, encode their files so as to ensure that they won't be reverse engineered or tampered with. Most of them use an application called ionCube PHP Encoder to do this, so if you obtain a paid script and you'd like to install it in a web hosting account, a tool called ionCube Loader must be present on your server. Without this, you won't be able to install the script or in case you somehow manage to do this, it won't function appropriately as most of the script code will be encrypted to a point where it cannot be interpreted. In this light, you have to make sure that ionCube Loader is present if you get a new hosting account and you would like to use some paid web app. If you obtain a shared hosting account and the tool is not present, it cannot be added since the whole server PHP environment will have to be compiled again.

IonCube in Hosting

IonCube Loader is available with all the hosting plans that we supply, so when you need it in order to set up and execute some script application that requires it, you can enable it with a single click from the Advanced area of your Hepsia Control Panel. Due to the fact that you are able to switch the PHP version that's active for your account in the same section, you'll have to activate the instrument for every new version that you set. If you're more experienced, you can use a php.ini file in a domain or subdomain folder and set both the PHP version as well as the status of ionCube Loader for that particular website only, without affecting the entire account. Thus you can manage both new and older script apps for multiple websites in the same account - a thing that you will not be able to do with a lot of other website hosting suppliers out there.

IonCube in Semi-dedicated Hosting

As 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 app that requires the tool in order to work effectively. With several clicks in your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel you'll be able to activate or deactivate ionCube for the PHP version that's currently active for your account. As we support multiple versions of PHP concurrently, you will have to do this each time you move to a new 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. If you have multiple sites inside the same account and they need different versions of PHP, you're able to create a php.ini file in every single domain folder and with several lines of program code you are able to define both the PHP version and the status of ionCube irrespective of what is selected for the hosting account altogether.
