Lots of script-driven applications, especially paid content management systems, encode their files in order to ensure that they won't be reverse engineered or tampered with. Most of them use an application named ionCube PHP Encoder to do that, so, in case you acquire a paid script and you would like to install it in a website hosting account, a tool known as ionCube Loader has to be present on the server. Without this, you can't install the script or if you somehow find a way to do this, it will not work efficiently because almost all of the script code will be encrypted to a degree where it cannot be interpreted. That is why, you should make sure that ionCube Loader is present if you get a new hosting account and you'd like to employ some paid web app. If you buy a shared web 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 Cloud Hosting

IonCube Loader comes with all the cloud hosting plans that we supply, so every time you require it in order to set up and run a script application which requires it, you can enable it with a single click from the Advanced section of your Hepsia Control Panel. Due to the fact that you can switch the PHP version that's active for your account from the same section, you need to activate the tool for any new version that you set. If you are more skillful, you'll be able to take advantage of 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 will be able to run both new and older script applications for multiple sites within the same account - something that you cannot do with many other hosting service providers on the market.

IonCube in Semi-dedicated Hosting

IonCube Loader is available with all the Linux semi-dedicated packages that we provide, so you won't experience any problems if you would like to install and work with a script application which requires the tool in order to function properly. Enabling it is as easy as clicking a button inside the Advanced part of the Hepsia Control Panel that comes with all the semi-dedicated accounts and the change shall take effect in less than a minute, therefore you will be able to move forward with the application installation without delay. Because we use a revolutionary tailor-made platform and we support a number of versions of PHP simultaneously, you will need to activate ionCube any time you switch to a version that you have not used before. Additionally, you have the option to enable ionCube loader and even to set a PHP release different from the one in the account as a whole by creating a php.ini file in a separate domain or subdomain folder and adding several lines of program code within it.
