Lots of script-driven apps, especially paid cms, encrypt their files so as to make sure that they won't be reverse engineered or tampered with. Most of them use an app called ionCube PHP Encoder to do that, so, in case you get a paid script and you would like to set it up in a website hosting account, a software instrument 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 that, it will not function efficiently due to the fact that almost all of the script code will be encoded to a point where it can't be interpreted. That is why, you have to make sure that ionCube Loader is present if you get a new web hosting account and you want to work with some paid web application. If you get a shared hosting account and the tool is not present, it cannot be added as the whole server PHP environment shall have to be compiled again.

IonCube in Shared Website Hosting

IonCube Loader is provided with all shared website hosting plans which we provide, so when you require it in order to set up and run a script application that needs it, you can enable it with a click in the Advanced section of your Hepsia Control Panel. Due to the fact that you'll be able to change the PHP release that's active for your account in the same section, you'll have to activate the instrument for every new version that you set. In case you are more skillful, you're able to employ a php.ini file in a domain or subdomain folder and set both the PHP version and the status of ionCube Loader for this particular website only, without affecting the entire account. Thus you can operate both new and older script applications for multiple websites inside the same account - a thing that you cannot do with many other web hosting providers available on the market.

IonCube in Semi-dedicated Hosting

As all semi-dedicated server accounts are set up on our advanced cluster platform and ionCube Loader is available on it, you will be able to use any script app that requires the software tool so as to run effectively. With just a few clicks in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel you're able to activate or deactivate ionCube for the PHP version that is currently active for your account. As we support multiple releases of PHP simultaneously, you will have to do this each and every time you switch to a new version, and when you revert back to a version which you've already used, our system will remember your preference and ionCube Loader will already be active. In case 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 each and every domain folder and with a couple of lines of code you're able to define both the PHP version plus the status of ionCube irrespective of what is selected for the hosting account as a whole.
