Lots of script-driven applications, especially paid content management systems, encrypt their files so as to make sure that they will not be reverse engineered or tampered with. Most of them use an app known as ionCube PHP Encoder to do that, so when you purchase a paid script and you wish to set it up in a hosting account, a tool called ionCube Loader has to be present on the server. Without having it, you will not be able to install the script or if you somehow find a way to do that, it will not operate appropriately as almost all of the script code will be encrypted to a degree where it can't be interpreted. That is why, you need to ensure that ionCube Loader is set up when you get a new hosting account and you wish to use some paid web application. If you buy a shared website hosting account and the instrument is not present, it cannot be added as the entire server PHP environment shall have to be compiled again.

IonCube in Cloud Website Hosting

If you aquire a Linux cloud website hosting through our company, it will be set up on our custom cloud platform where ionCube Loader is already present, so you will not have any kind of problems to manage any script app which needs the tool to run appropriately. We also offer a few different versions of PHP, so if you switch the version, you need to activate ionCube again. Our platform remembers the changes you make, which means that in case you go back to the previous release of PHP that was active for your account, ionCube Loader will already be activated. The PHP version and the ionCube tool can be managed from the PHP Configuration part of our Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. Any change that you make takes literally just a mouse-click and it takes effect without delay.

IonCube in Semi-dedicated Hosting

IonCube Loader is provided with all of the semi-dedicated hosting services that we supply, which means that you will not have any problems if you would like to install and work with a script app which requires the tool to operate properly. Activating it is as simple as clicking a single button in the Advanced section of the Hepsia Control Panel which comes with all of the semi-dedicated accounts and the change shall take effect in a minute, therefore you'll be able to move forward with the application set up without any delays. Since we employ an avant-garde in-house built platform and we support a number of versions of PHP simultaneously, you will have to enable ionCube every time you move to a version that you have not used before. In addition, you'll 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 generating a php.ini file in an individual domain or subdomain folder and adding several lines of program code within it.
