A lot of script-driven applications, especially paid content management systems, encode their files to make sure that they will not be reverse engineered or tampered with. Most of them use an application called ionCube PHP Encoder to do that, so when you get a paid script and you wish to set it up in a web hosting account, a tool called ionCube Loader has to be present on the server. Without this, you will not be able to install the script or if you somehow manage to do that, it won't function properly because most of the script code will be encoded to a degree where it can't be interpreted. That's why, you have to ensure that ionCube Loader is installed if you get a new web hosting account and you wish to employ some paid web app. If you obtain a shared hosting account and the instrument is not present, it cannot be added because the whole server PHP environment shall have to be compiled again.
IonCube in Cloud Hosting
If you obtain a cloud hosting through us, it'll be set up on our in-house built cloud hosting platform where ionCube Loader is already set up, so you won't have any problems to manage any script application that requires the tool to run properly. In addition, we provide a few different releases of PHP, therefore if you change the version, you will need to enable ionCube once again. Our system remembers the changes you make, so in case you switch back to the previous release of PHP that was active for your account, ionCube Loader will already be turned on. The PHP version and the ionCube instrument can be operated through the PHP Configuration part of our Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. Every change that you do takes literally just a click and it takes effect without delay.
IonCube in Semi-dedicated Hosting
IonCube Loader is available with all of the semi-dedicated hosting that we supply, so you won't encounter any problems if you'd like to set up and use a script application that requires the software tool in order to function appropriately. Enabling it is as easy as clicking a button in the Advanced part of the Hepsia Control Panel which comes with all of the semi-dedicated accounts and the change shall take effect in less than a minute, so you are able to proceed with the app installation without any delays. Because we use a revolutionary custom-built platform and we support multiple versions of PHP simultaneously, you will need to enable ionCube any time you switch to a version that you have not used before. You will also have the option to enable 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 a separate domain or subdomain folder and adding a couple of lines of program code inside it.
