Plenty of script-driven applications, particularly paid content management systems, encrypt their files so as to ensure that they won't be reverse engineered or tampered with. Many of them use an app called ionCube PHP Encoder to do that, so, in case you buy a paid script and you wish to install it in a hosting account, an instrument called ionCube Loader has to be present on the server. Without this, you can't install the script or in case you somehow find a way to do this, it won't function effectively due to the fact that most of the script code will be encoded to a degree where it cannot be interpreted. That is why, you should make sure that ionCube Loader is installed when you get a new web hosting account and you want to take advantage of some paid web application. If you buy a shared web hosting account and the instrument is not present, it cannot be added as your entire server PHP environment shall have to be compiled again.

IonCube in Shared Hosting

IonCube Loader is provided with all the shared hosting packages which we provide, so when you need it in order to install and run some script app that needs it, you can activate it with a click inside the Advanced area of the Hepsia Control Panel. Due to the fact that you'll be able to change the PHP release that is active for your account in the same section, you need to enable the tool for each new version which you set. When you're more skillful, you'll be able to use 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 website only, without affecting the entire account. In this way you'll be able to operate both new and older script applications for multiple websites in the same account - something that you can't do with various other website hosting providers available on the market.

IonCube in Semi-dedicated Hosting

IonCube Loader is provided with all of the semi-dedicated hosting services that we offer, and you will not have any problems in case you'd like to install and use a script app which requires the software instrument in order to operate properly. Activating it is as easy as clicking a button in the Advanced area of the Hepsia Control Panel which comes with all of the semi-dedicated accounts and the change will take effect in a minute, which means that you will be able to move forward with the app set up without delay. Since we use a revolutionary custom platform and we support several versions of PHP simultaneously, you will need to activate ionCube any time you switch to a version that you haven't used before. You will also have the option to enable ionCube loader and even to set a PHP version 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 several lines of code within it.
