Lots of script-driven applications, especially paid cms, encode their files to make sure that they won't be reverse engineered or tampered with. The majority of them use an app known as ionCube PHP Encoder to do this, so when you purchase a paid script and you want to set it up in a web hosting account, a software instrument known as ionCube Loader needs to be present on your server. Without it, you will not be able to install the script or in case you somehow manage to do that, it won't function effectively due to the fact that almost all of the script code will be encrypted to a degree where it cannot be interpreted. That's why, you have to make sure that ionCube Loader is set up if you get a fresh website hosting account and you want to take advantage of some paid web app. If you acquire a shared hosting account and the tool is not present, it can't be added because the entire server PHP environment shall have to be compiled again.
IonCube in Shared Hosting
IonCube Loader is supplied with every single shared hosting that we supply and you can enable it at any time with just a couple of clicks, so you'll be able to employ script apps that need it. You will be 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 can go ahead and set up the application that you'd like without delay. The exact same section will allow you to switch the PHP release which is active for your account, as we support numerous releases on our cutting-edge cloud hosting platform. In case you switch to a version that you have not used so far, you'll need to activate 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 whole account or enable/disable ionCube Loader.
IonCube in Semi-dedicated Servers
IonCube Loader is available with all semi-dedicated servers that we offer, which means that you won't have any problems in case you'd like to set up and use a script application which requires the software tool in order to function appropriately. Enabling it is as easy as clicking a single button inside the Advanced area of the Hepsia Control Panel that comes with all of the semi-dedicated accounts and the change shall take effect in less than a minute, therefore you'll be able to move forward with the application installation without any delays. Since we employ an avant-garde in-house built platform and we support a number of versions of PHP at the same time, you will have to activate ionCube every time you move to a version that you haven't used before. In addition, you'll have the option to enable ionCube loader and even to set a PHP release different from the one in the account as a whole by creating a php.ini file in an individual domain or subdomain folder and adding a couple of lines of program code inside it.
