A lot of script-driven apps, especially paid cms, encrypt their files in order to make sure that they won't be reverse engineered or tampered with. Most of them use an app called ionCube PHP Encoder to do this, so, in case you acquire a paid script and you'd like to install it in a website hosting account, a software tool known as ionCube Loader must be present on the server. Without it, you won't be able to install the script or in case you somehow manage to do that, it will not work properly since most of the script code will be encrypted to a point where it can't be interpreted. In this light, you need to make sure that ionCube Loader is installed if you get a fresh web hosting account and you want to use some paid web application. If you obtain a shared website hosting account and the instrument is not present, it can't be added because the whole server PHP environment shall have to be compiled again.

IonCube in Hosting

IonCube Loader comes with all the hosting packages which we supply, so when you require it to set up and run a script app that needs it, you can enable it with a single click in the Advanced section of your Hepsia Control Panel. Because you're able to switch the PHP release that's active for your account from the same section, you will need to enable the tool for every new version that you set. In case you are more skillful, you're able to use a php.ini file in a domain or subdomain folder and set the PHP version and the status of ionCube Loader for this particular site only, without affecting the whole account. In this way you're able to manage both new and older script applications for multiple websites in the same account - a thing that you will not be able to do with various other web hosting service providers available on the market.

IonCube in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Because all the semi-dedicated server accounts are set up on our advanced cluster platform and ionCube Loader is available on it, you will be able to use any script application that requires the software tool to function properly. With several clicks in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel you'll be able to activate or deactivate ionCube for the PHP version which is currently active for the account. Because we support a couple of versions of PHP concurrently, you'll need to do this each and every time you move to a new version, but when you revert back to a release which you've already used, our system will remember your choice and ionCube Loader will already be active. In case you have a couple of sites inside the same account and they require different versions of PHP, you will be able to create a php.ini file in every single domain folder and with a couple of lines of code you are able to define both the PHP version as well as the status of ionCube no matter what is selected for the website hosting account as a whole.
