Plenty of script-driven applications, especially 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 named ionCube PHP Encoder to do that, so if you obtain a paid script and you'd like to set it up in a hosting account, a tool called ionCube Loader has to be present on the server. Without having it, you can't install the script or in case you somehow find a way to do that, it won't operate efficiently since almost all of the script code will be encoded to a point where it cannot be interpreted. In this light, you have to ensure that ionCube Loader is set up if you get a fresh hosting account and you would like to employ some paid web application. If you buy a shared website hosting account and the tool is not present, it can't be added since the entire server PHP environment shall have to be compiled again.

IonCube in Cloud Hosting

IonCube Loader is provided with all cloud hosting packages which we provide, so any time you require it to set up and execute a script application which needs it, you can enable it with a click from the Advanced section of your Hepsia Control Panel. Due to the fact that you are able to switch the PHP release that is active for your account in the same section, you will have to activate the instrument for any new version which you set. If you are more skillful, you are able to employ a php.ini file in a domain or subdomain folder and set the PHP version as well as the status of ionCube Loader for this particular website only, without affecting the entire account. Thus you can operate both new and older script apps for multiple sites in the same account - something that you will not be able to do with numerous other hosting service providers on the market.

IonCube in Semi-dedicated Servers

IonCube Loader is available with all semi-dedicated servers that we offer, so you will not have any kind of problems if you would like to install and use some script app which requires the tool in order to operate properly. Activating it is as simple as clicking a single button inside the Advanced section of the Hepsia Control Panel which comes with all the semi-dedicated accounts and the change will take effect in less than a minute, so you'll be able to proceed with the app installation without delay. As we employ an innovative in-house made platform and we support many different versions of PHP simultaneously, you will have to activate ionCube any time you switch to a version that you have not used before. You will also have the option to activate ionCube loader or 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 inside it.
