Lots of script-driven applications, particularly paid cms, encode their files so as to ensure that they will not be reverse engineered or tampered with. Many of them use an app called ionCube PHP Encoder to do this, so, in case you obtain a paid script and you wish to install it in a web hosting account, a tool known as ionCube Loader must be present on the server. Without this, you won't be able to install the script or in case you somehow find a way to do that, it will not work appropriately since most 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 present if you get a fresh hosting account and you want to employ some paid web application. If you buy a shared hosting account and the tool is not present, it can't be added since your entire server PHP environment will have to be compiled again.

IonCube in Hosting

When you purchase a hosting package through us, it will be set up on our custom cloud platform where ionCube Loader is already installed, so you will not have any problems to run any script application that needs the instrument in order to function properly. We also provide a few different versions of PHP, therefore in case you change the version, you will need to activate ionCube again. Our platform remembers the adjustments you make, and in case you switch back to the earlier release of PHP that was active for your account, ionCube Loader will already be activated. The PHP version as well as the ionCube instrument can be operated from the PHP Configuration part of our Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. Every adjustment that you make takes literally just a single click and it'll take effect immediately.

IonCube in Semi-dedicated Hosting

In case you purchase a semi-dedicated server package from our company, you will be able to take advantage of any kind of script-driven app that needs ionCube Loader because the software tool comes with all servers which are part of our revolutionary cloud hosting platform. Furthermore, we support several versions of PHP, therefore if you move from PHP 4 to 5.2 or 5.3, for instance, you can activate ionCube for this particular version with only a click in your Hepsia Control Panel. Our system will remember your choice, and in case you move back to the previous version of PHP, the software tool will already be active. For more experienced users, we also provide the option to pick the PHP version and whether ionCube will be active or not for a specific domain without altering the settings for the entire web hosting account. This can be done by placing a php.ini file inside a domain folder with a couple of lines of program code.
