A lot of script-driven apps, particularly paid cms, encrypt their files in order to ensure that they will not be reverse engineered or tampered with. Most of them use an app called ionCube PHP Encoder to do that, so when you get a paid script and you want to install it in a hosting account, a tool called ionCube Loader needs to be present on the server. Without it, you cannot install the script or if you somehow find a way to do this, it will not work appropriately because most of the script code will be encrypted to a degree where it can't be interpreted. In this light, you have to make sure that ionCube Loader is set up when you get a new web hosting account and you want to employ some paid web application. If you purchase a shared 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 Cloud Hosting

IonCube Loader is supplied with each and every Linux cloud hosting package that we supply and you can enable it at any time with just a few clicks, so you can use script applications which require it. You are able to do that from the PHP Configuration area of your Hepsia Control Panel and all it takes to activate or disable ionCube is to click a single button. The change will take effect within a minute, which means that you're able to go ahead and install the application that you would like without delay. The exact same section will allow you to change the PHP version which is active for your account, as we support a variety of versions on our cutting-edge cloud platform. If you switch to a release that you've never used so far, you will need to activate ionCube Loader once again. More advanced users will be able to use a php.ini file in a specific domain folder to set a PHP version different from the one for the whole account or enable/disable ionCube Loader.

IonCube in Semi-dedicated Hosting

IonCube Loader is available with all Linux semi-dedicated hosting packages that we offer, and you will not have any problems if you would like to install and use a script app that requires the instrument in order to operate appropriately. Enabling it is as easy as clicking a single button inside the Advanced section of the Hepsia Control Panel that comes with all the semi-dedicated accounts and the change shall take effect in less than a minute, therefore you're able to proceed with the application set up without delay. For the reason that we use a cutting-edge custom-made platform and we support a number of versions of PHP simultaneously, you will need to enable ionCube every time you switch to a version that you have not used before. Additionally, you have the option to activate ionCube loader or even to set a PHP release 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 several lines of code inside it.
