Lots of script-driven apps, particularly paid content management systems, encode their files so as to make sure that they won't be reverse engineered or tampered with. The majority of them use an application called ionCube PHP Encoder to do this, so when you get a paid script and you would like to set it up in a website hosting account, an instrument known as ionCube Loader has to be present on your server. Without having it, you cannot install the script or in case you somehow find a way to do this, it won't operate efficiently since almost all of the script code will be encrypted to a degree where it cannot be interpreted. In this light, you should make sure that ionCube Loader is set up if you get a new web hosting account and you'd like to work with some paid web app. If you buy a shared hosting account and the tool is not present, it cannot be added since the entire server PHP environment shall have to be compiled again.
IonCube in Shared Hosting
IonCube Loader is supplied with each and every Linux shared service that we offer and you'll be able to enable it anytime with only a couple of clicks, so you can take advantage of script apps which require it. You will be able to do this from the PHP Configuration section of your Hepsia Control Panel and all it takes to enable or disable ionCube is to click a button. The change takes effect within a minute, which means that you can proceed and set up the application that you'd like right away. The same section allows you to change the PHP version which is active for your account, because we support a number of releases on our leading-edge cloud platform. If you switch to a release that you haven't used to date, you will have to activate ionCube Loader again. More advanced users can use a php.ini file in a particular domain folder so as to set a PHP version different from the one for the entire account or enable/disable ionCube Loader.
IonCube in Semi-dedicated Servers
Each and every semi-dedicated server account that's generated on our cutting-edge cloud hosting platform includes ionCube Loader support, which means that you can set up any kind of script application that needs the tool. Then employ it in order to launch and maintain your online presence. You can enable ionCube through the PHP Configuration section of your Control Panel and it will take you no more than a couple of clicks to do this. Your change takes effect immediately, so you'll be able to go ahead and set up the needed script in your account. If you decide to change the PHP version that's active for your account, you'll have to enable ionCube for the new release too. Our custom platform also allows you to have a different PHP version for each domain or subdomain, which is done with a php.ini file in each domain folder. In the same way, you will be able to enable/disable ionCube Loader for each individual website hosted in your semi-dedicated account.
