Lots of script-driven apps, especially paid cms, encode their files so as to ensure that they will not be reverse engineered or tampered with. The majority of them use an app named ionCube PHP Encoder to do this, so when you get a paid script and you would like to set it up in a hosting account, an instrument called ionCube Loader has to be present on the server. Without it, you will not be able to install the script or in case you somehow find a way to do this, it will not operate appropriately because most of the script code will be encoded to a point where it cannot be interpreted. That is why, you have to ensure that ionCube Loader is present if you get a new web hosting account and you would like to take advantage of some paid web app. If you acquire a shared hosting account and the instrument is not present, it can't be added because the entire server PHP environment shall have to be compiled again.

IonCube in Cloud Hosting

IonCube Loader is provided with all cloud hosting plans that we offer, so if you require it in order to install and run some script application that needs it, you can activate it with a single click in the Advanced area of the Hepsia Control Panel. As you're able to change the PHP version which is active for your account in the same section, you'll need to enable the instrument for any new version that you set. In case you are more skillful, you're able to use a php.ini file in a domain or subdomain folder and set the PHP version and the status of ionCube Loader for this particular website only, without affecting the whole account. In this way you can operate both new and older script apps for multiple websites in the same account - something that you will not be able to do with a lot of other website hosting providers out there.

IonCube in Semi-dedicated Servers

Because all of the 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 efficiently. With just a few clicks in the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel you can activate or deactivate ionCube for the PHP version that is currently active for the account. Since we support multiple versions of PHP concurrently, you will need to do this each and every time you switch to a different version, 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 a couple of sites inside the same account and they require different versions of PHP, you are able to set up a php.ini file in each domain folder and with a couple of lines of program code you're able to define both the PHP version as well as the status of ionCube regardless of what is selected for the web hosting account as a whole.
