Plenty of script-driven applications, especially paid cms, encode their files to ensure that they will not be reverse engineered or tampered with. The majority of them use an app named ionCube PHP Encoder to do that, so when you acquire a paid script and you intend to install it in a hosting account, a tool called ionCube Loader needs to be present on the server. Without it, you will not be able to install the script or if you somehow manage to do that, it will not work appropriately as most of the script code will be encoded to a degree where it can't be interpreted. That is why, you should ensure that ionCube Loader is installed if you get a fresh hosting account and you wish to take advantage of some paid web app. If you purchase a shared hosting account and the tool is not present, it cannot be added because the entire server PHP environment shall have to be compiled again.
IonCube in Website Hosting
IonCube Loader is provided with all website hosting plans that we provide, so if you need it to install and execute a script application which needs it, you can activate it with a single click in the Advanced area of your Hepsia Control Panel. Since you are able to switch the PHP release which is active for your account in the same section, you will need to enable the instrument for each new version which you set. In case you are more experienced, you will be 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 site only, without affecting the whole account. This way you're able to manage both new and older script applications for multiple websites within the same account - a thing that you will not be able to do with numerous other web hosting providers out there.
IonCube in Semi-dedicated Servers
Due to the fact that all semi-dedicated server accounts are set up on our advanced cluster platform and ionCube Loader is available on it, you will be able to use any script app which needs the software tool in order to work properly. With just a few clicks in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel you are able to activate or deactivate ionCube for the PHP version that's currently active for the account. Because we support multiple releases of PHP concurrently, you'll have to do this each and every time you switch to a new version, and when you revert back to a release that you have already used, our system will remember your preference and ionCube Loader will already be active. If you have a couple of websites in the same account and they need different versions of PHP, you're able to create a php.ini file in every single domain folder and with several lines of program code you'll be able to define both the PHP release and the status of ionCube no matter what is selected for the website hosting account altogether.
