A lot of script-driven applications, especially paid cms, encrypt their files to make sure that they won't be reverse engineered or tampered with. The majority of them use an app called ionCube PHP Encoder to do this, so, in case you obtain a paid script and you intend to install it in a web hosting account, an instrument known as ionCube Loader has to be present on the server. Without having it, you cannot install the script or if you somehow find a way to do this, it will not function appropriately due to the fact that most of the script code will be encrypted to a degree where it can't be interpreted. In this light, you need to make sure that ionCube Loader is set up when you get a new hosting account and you'd like to work with some paid web application. If you acquire a shared website hosting account and the instrument is not present, it cannot be added because the whole server PHP environment will have to be compiled again.
IonCube in Shared Hosting
When you aquire a shared service from our company, it'll be set up on our custom cloud hosting platform where ionCube Loader is already installed, so you will not have any problems to run any script application which requires the instrument to run properly. We also offer several different releases of PHP, which means that in case you switch the version, you'll have to activate ionCube again. Our platform remembers the changes you make, and if you go back to the previous release of PHP that was active for your account, ionCube Loader will already be turned on. Both the PHP version and the ionCube instrument can be managed from the PHP Configuration part of our Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. Any adjustment that you make takes literally just a single click and it takes effect immediately.
IonCube in Semi-dedicated Servers
In case you obtain a semi-dedicated server plan from our company, you'll be able to use any kind of script-driven application that requires ionCube Loader as the software tool comes with all of the servers that are part of our modern cloud website hosting platform. We also support various versions of PHP, therefore if you switch from PHP 4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4, 5.5, 5.6, 7.0, 7.1, 7.2, 7.3, 7.4, 8.0, 8.1, 8.2, for instance, you can activate ionCube for that particular release with just a click in your Hepsia Control Panel. Our platform will remember your choice, so in case you switch back to the earlier version of PHP, the software instrument will already be active. For more experienced users, we also provide the option to pick the PHP version and whether ionCube will be active or not for a particular domain name without altering the settings for the whole web hosting account. This is done by placing a php.ini file within a domain folder with a couple of lines of program code.
