Plenty of script-driven applications, especially paid cms, encrypt their files so as to ensure that they will not be reverse engineered or tampered with. The majority of them use an application named ionCube PHP Encoder to do that, so, in case you buy a paid script and you would like to install it in a web hosting account, a tool called ionCube Loader must be present on your server. Without having it, you can't install the script or if you somehow find a way to do that, it will not function appropriately due to the fact that almost all of the script code will be encoded to a point where it can't be interpreted. In this light, you need to make sure that ionCube Loader is set up when you get a fresh website hosting account and you would like to employ some paid web app. If you buy a shared hosting account and the instrument is not present, it can't be added because your entire server PHP environment shall have to be compiled again.

IonCube in Web Hosting

IonCube Loader is provided with all the web hosting packages which we offer, so any time you require it in order to set up and run a script app that requires it, you can activate it with a single click in the Advanced area of your Hepsia Control Panel. Because you can change the PHP version which is active for your account in the same section, you will have to activate the tool for any new version that you set. If you are more experienced, you're able to take advantage of a php.ini file in a domain or subdomain folder and set the PHP version and the status of ionCube Loader for that particular website only, without affecting the entire account. In this way you'll be able to manage both new and older script apps for multiple sites in the same account - a thing that you won't be able to do with various other web hosting providers available on the market.

IonCube in Semi-dedicated Servers

IonCube Loader is available with all semi-dedicated servers that we provide, and you will not experience any problems in case you'd like to set up and use a script app which requires the tool to function properly. Enabling it is as simple as clicking a button inside the Advanced part of the Hepsia Control Panel that comes with all of the semi-dedicated accounts and the change will take effect in less than a minute, so you can move forward with the app set up without any delays. Because we employ an avant-garde tailor-made platform and we support several versions of PHP simultaneously, you will need to enable ionCube any time you move to a version that you have not used before. Additionally, you 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 making a php.ini file in a separate domain or subdomain folder and adding a few lines of program code in it.
