Lots of script-driven apps, especially paid content management systems, encrypt their files to make sure that they will not be reverse engineered or tampered with. Most of them use an app named ionCube PHP Encoder to do this, so when you purchase a paid script and you would like to install it in a web hosting account, a software instrument known as ionCube Loader needs to be present on your server. Without it, you can't install the script or if you somehow manage to do that, it will not work appropriately due to the fact that almost all of the script code will be encoded to a point where it can't be interpreted. That's why, you should make sure that ionCube Loader is present if you get a new website hosting account and you'd like to use some paid web application. If you obtain a shared web hosting account and the tool is not present, it can't be added as the entire server PHP environment shall have to be compiled again.
IonCube in Shared Website Hosting
IonCube Loader is provided with all of the shared website hosting packages that we provide, so when you need it to set up and execute some script application that requires it, you can activate it with a click from the Advanced area of the Hepsia Control Panel. Due to the fact that you'll be able to switch the PHP release that's active for your account in the same section, you'll have to activate the instrument for every new version which you set. If you are more experienced, you are able to use 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 site only, without affecting the whole account. In this way you'll be able to manage both new and older script applications for multiple websites inside the same account - a thing that you cannot do with lots of other hosting service providers out there.
IonCube in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Every single semi-dedicated server account that's set up on our cutting-edge cloud web hosting platform includes ionCube Loader support, so you will be able to set up any script app which requires the tool. Then employ it to launch and maintain your world wide web presence. You can activate ionCube from the PHP Configuration section of the Control Panel and it'll take you just a few clicks to do this. The change will take effect without delay, so you will be able to proceed and install the needed script in your account. If you choose to change the PHP version that's active for the account, you need to activate ionCube for the new version too. Our custom platform also allows you to have a different PHP release for each and every domain or subdomain, which is done with a php.ini file in each domain folder. In the same way, you're able to enable/disable ionCube Loader for each site hosted in your semi-dedicated account.
