Lots of script-driven applications, especially paid content management systems, encrypt their files in order to make sure that they won't be reverse engineered or tampered with. Many of them use an app called ionCube PHP Encoder to do this, so, in case you buy a paid script and you want to set it up in a hosting account, a tool called ionCube Loader needs to be present on the server. Without this, you can't install the script or in case you somehow manage to do this, it will not work efficiently as almost all of the script code will be encoded to a point where it can't be interpreted. In this light, you need to make sure that ionCube Loader is installed when you get a new web hosting account and you wish to employ some paid web app. If you purchase a shared hosting account and the instrument is not present, it can't be added because your entire server PHP environment shall have to be compiled again.

IonCube in Shared Hosting

If you obtain a Linux shared plan from our company, it will be created on our custom cloud hosting platform where ionCube Loader is already set up, so you will not have any kind of problems to run any script app which needs the instrument so as to function properly. We also provide a few different versions of PHP, which means that in case you switch the version, you'll have to activate ionCube once again. Our system remembers the changes you make, and if you go back to the earlier release of PHP that was active for your account, ionCube Loader will already be activated. The PHP version and the ionCube instrument can be managed from the PHP Configuration part of our Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. Each adjustment that you make takes literally just a mouse-click and it will take effect at once.

IonCube in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you get a semi-dedicated server plan from our company, you will be able to take advantage of any script-driven application that requires ionCube Loader due to the fact that the tool is installed on all of the servers which are part of our state-of-the-art cloud web hosting platform. Furthermore, we support different releases of PHP, so if you switch from PHP 4 to 5.2 or 5.3, for instance, you can enable ionCube for this particular version with only a click from your Hepsia Control Panel. Our platform will remember your decision, and if you move back to the earlier version of PHP, the instrument will already be active. For more experienced users, we also provide the option to pick the PHP version and if ionCube will be active or not for a particular domain name without altering the settings for the whole web hosting account. This can be done by putting a php.ini file in a domain folder with a couple of lines of code.
