Lots of script-driven applications, particularly paid content management systems, encode their files so as to ensure that they will not be reverse engineered or tampered with. Many of them use an application called 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 tool called ionCube Loader needs to be present on your server. Without this, you will not be able to install the script or in case you somehow manage to do that, it will not operate effectively due to the fact that most of the script code will be encrypted to a point where it can't be interpreted. That is why, you should make sure that ionCube Loader is installed if you get a new hosting account and you'd like to employ some paid web application. If you obtain a shared hosting account and the tool is not present, it cannot be added because the whole server PHP environment shall have to be compiled again.
IonCube in Cloud Website Hosting
IonCube Loader is supplied with each cloud website hosting package that we offer and you're able to activate it at any time with just a few clicks, so you will be able to employ script applications that need it. You will be able to do this through the PHP Configuration area of your Hepsia Control Panel and all it will take to activate or deactivate ionCube is to click a single button. The change takes effect within a minute, which means that you are able to go ahead and install the app that you need without delay. The exact same section allows you to switch the PHP release that is active for your account, as we support a variety of releases on our advanced cloud platform. In case you move to a version that you've never used to date, you'll have to enable ionCube Loader once again. Experienced users can use a php.ini file in a specific domain folder so as to set a PHP release different from the one for the whole account or enable/disable ionCube Loader.
IonCube in Semi-dedicated Hosting
IonCube Loader is provided with all Linux semi-dedicated hosting that we provide, which means that you won't encounter any kind of problems if you would like to set up and use some script app which requires the tool in order to operate appropriately. Enabling it is as simple as clicking a button inside the Advanced area of the Hepsia Control Panel which comes with all the semi-dedicated accounts and the change will take effect in less than a minute, which means that you'll be able to move forward with the app installation without any delays. Because we employ a cutting-edge tailor-made platform and we support multiple versions of PHP at the same time, you will have to enable ionCube every time you move to a version that you haven't used before. You will also have the option to enable ionCube loader or even to set a PHP release different from the one in the account as a whole by making a php.ini file in an individual domain or subdomain folder and adding several lines of program code inside it.
