Plenty of script-driven applications, especially paid cms, encrypt their files to ensure that they won't be reverse engineered or tampered with. Most of them use an application called ionCube PHP Encoder to do that, so when you acquire a paid script and you'd like to set it up in a web hosting account, a software tool known as ionCube Loader needs to be present on the server. Without having it, you cannot install the script or in case you somehow manage to do this, it will not work effectively due to the fact that most of the script code will be encrypted to a point where it cannot be interpreted. That's why, you have to make sure that ionCube Loader is present if you get a fresh website hosting account and you wish to employ some paid web application. If you acquire a shared web hosting account and the instrument is not present, it can't be added because your entire server PHP environment will have to be compiled again.
IonCube in Cloud Web Hosting
IonCube Loader is supplied with each cloud web hosting that we supply and you're able to activate it at any time with just a few clicks, so you can use script apps which require it. You're able to do that from the PHP Configuration section of your Hepsia Control Panel and all it'll take to enable or disable ionCube is to click a button. The change takes effect within a minute, which means that you will be able to go ahead and set up the app that you'd like without delay. The exact same section allows you to switch the PHP version which is active for your account, because we support numerous versions on our hi-tech cloud platform. In case you switch to a release that you have never used to date, you will need to enable ionCube Loader again. Experienced users will be able to use a php.ini file in a particular domain folder to set a PHP release different from the one for the entire account or enable/disable ionCube Loader.
IonCube in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you obtain a semi-dedicated server package from our company, you can use any kind of script-driven application which requires ionCube Loader since the tool comes with all servers which are a part of our cutting-edge cloud website hosting platform. Furthermore, we support various releases of PHP, which means that if you move from PHP 4 to 5.2 or 5.3, for example, you can enable ionCube for that particular version with just a click from your Hepsia Control Panel. Our platform will remember your choice, so in case you move back to the earlier version of PHP, the tool will already be active. For more tech-savvy users, we also offer the option to choose the PHP version and if ionCube will be active or not for a specific domain name without altering the settings for the whole website hosting account. This can be done by putting a php.ini file in a domain folder with several lines of code.
