Plenty of script-driven applications, especially paid content management systems, encode their files in order to ensure that they will not be reverse engineered or tampered with. Many of them use an application known as ionCube PHP Encoder to do that, so if you get a paid script and you intend to set it up in a website hosting account, a software tool known as ionCube Loader has to be present on the server. Without it, you will not be able to install the script or in case you somehow manage to do this, it will not function efficiently as almost all of the script code will be encoded to a degree where it can't be interpreted. In this light, you need to make sure that ionCube Loader is installed if you get a fresh website hosting account and you'd like to employ some paid web application. If you acquire a shared hosting account and the instrument is not present, it can't be added because the whole server PHP environment will have to be compiled again.
IonCube in Hosting
IonCube Loader is supplied with each and every hosting that we offer and you are able to activate it anytime with only a couple of clicks, so you can take advantage of script applications which need it. You can do this from the PHP Configuration section of your Hepsia Control Panel and all it will take to enable or disable ionCube is to click a button. The change will take effect in a minute, which means that you'll be able to go ahead and install the application that you would like without delay. The very same section will allow you to switch the PHP release that is active for your account, because we support numerous versions on our state-of-the-art cloud platform. In case you switch to a release that you have never used so far, you will need to enable ionCube Loader again. More advanced users will be able to use a php.ini file in a particular domain folder so as to set a PHP version different from the one for the whole account or enable/disable ionCube Loader.
IonCube in Semi-dedicated Servers
Each semi-dedicated server account that's created on our modern cloud hosting platform comes with ionCube Loader support, and you will be able to install any kind of script app that requires the software tool. Then employ it in order to launch and maintain your web presence. You can activate ionCube through the PHP Configuration area of the Control Panel and it'll take you just a couple of clicks to do that. The change takes effect right away, which means that you can go ahead and set up the needed script inside your account. If you'd like to switch the PHP version which is active for your account, you should activate ionCube for the new release as well. Our custom-built platform also allows you to have a different PHP version for each domain or subdomain, which is done with a php.ini file in every domain folder. In the same way, you'll be able to enable/disable ionCube Loader for each individual site hosted in your semi-dedicated account.
