Plenty of script-driven apps, especially paid content management systems, encode their files so as to make sure that they won't be reverse engineered or tampered with. Most of them use an application called ionCube PHP Encoder to do this, so, in case you get a paid script and you would like to set it up in a hosting account, a tool called ionCube Loader must be present on the server. Without it, you can't install the script or in case you somehow find a way to do this, it won't work properly as almost all of the script code will be encrypted to a point where it cannot be interpreted. In this light, you should make sure that ionCube Loader is installed if you get a new hosting account and you'd like to work with some paid web app. If you purchase a shared hosting account and the tool is not present, it can't be added because your entire server PHP environment will have to be compiled again.

IonCube in Cloud Hosting

IonCube Loader comes with all cloud hosting plans that we provide, so any time you need it in order to install and run a script application which requires it, you can enable it with a single click in the Advanced section of your Hepsia Control Panel. As you're able to switch the PHP release that's active for your account from the same section, you will have to activate the tool for each new version which you set. If you're more experienced, you are able to employ a php.ini file in a domain or subdomain folder and set the PHP version as well as the status of ionCube Loader for this particular website only, without affecting the whole account. Thus you are able to run both new and older script applications for multiple websites within the same account - a thing that you won't be able to do with various other hosting service providers out there.

IonCube in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Since all semi-dedicated server accounts are created on our advanced cluster platform and ionCube Loader is available on it, you will be able to use any script application that needs this tool to function effectively. With just a few clicks in the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel you will be able to activate or deactivate ionCube for the PHP version that's currently active for your account. Because we support multiple versions of PHP simultaneously, you will have to do that each time you switch to a different version, and when you revert back to a version which you have already used, our system will remember your choice and ionCube Loader will already be activated. In case you have multiple websites in the same account and they require different releases of PHP, you can create a php.ini file in each and every domain folder and with several lines of program code you will be able to define both the PHP release plus the status of ionCube regardless of what is selected for the website hosting account as a whole.
