Lots of script-driven applications, particularly paid cms, encode their files so as to ensure that they will not be reverse engineered or tampered with. Most of them use an application known as ionCube PHP Encoder to do this, so when you purchase a paid script and you'd like to install it in a hosting account, a software instrument called ionCube Loader has to be present on your server. Without this, you won't be able to install the script or if you somehow manage to do this, it won't work efficiently for the reason that most of the script code will be encrypted to a degree where it can't be interpreted. That is why, you should make sure that ionCube Loader is set up if you get a fresh website hosting account and you want to employ some paid web app. If you purchase a shared hosting account and the instrument is not present, it cannot be added since the whole server PHP environment shall have to be compiled again.

IonCube in Shared Website Hosting

IonCube Loader comes with all the shared website hosting packages that we supply, so when you require it to set up and run a script app which needs it, you can activate it with a click from the Advanced area of your Hepsia Control Panel. Because you're able to change the PHP version that's active for your account in the same section, you need to activate the tool for every new version that you set. When you're more experienced, you can employ a php.ini file in a domain or subdomain folder and set the PHP version and the status of ionCube Loader for that particular website only, without affecting the entire account. Thus you're able to run both new and older script applications for multiple sites in the same account - a thing that you will not be able to do with lots of other website hosting providers available on the market.

IonCube in Semi-dedicated Servers

IonCube Loader is available with all of the semi-dedicated hosting plans that we supply, which means that you will not encounter any kind of problems in case you'd like to set up and use a script app that requires the software tool to function properly. Enabling it is as easy as clicking a single button in the Advanced area of the Hepsia Control Panel which comes with all the semi-dedicated accounts and the change will take effect in less than a minute, which means that you'll be able to move forward with the application installation without any delays. Due to the fact that we use an avant-garde custom platform and we support several versions of PHP at the same time, you will need to enable ionCube every time you switch to a version that you haven't used before. Additionally, you have the option to enable ionCube loader and even to set a PHP version different from the one in the account as a whole by making a php.ini file in a separate domain or subdomain folder and adding several lines of program code inside it.
