Plenty of script-driven apps, particularly paid content management systems, encode their files to make sure that they will not be reverse engineered or tampered with. The majority of them use an app called ionCube PHP Encoder to do that, so, in case you buy a paid script and you'd like to install it in a web hosting account, an instrument called ionCube Loader must be present on your server. Without having it, you won't be able to install the script or in case you somehow manage to do this, it will not function effectively for the reason that almost all of the script code will be encrypted to a point where it cannot be interpreted. That is why, you need to ensure that ionCube Loader is set up when you get a new website hosting account and you'd like to take advantage of some paid web app. If you obtain a shared hosting account and the tool is not present, it can't be added because the entire server PHP environment will have to be compiled again.
IonCube in Hosting
IonCube Loader is supplied with every single Linux hosting that we supply and you will be able to activate it anytime with only a couple of clicks, so you will be able to take advantage of script apps which need it. You'll be able to do this through the PHP Configuration section of your Hepsia Control Panel and all it takes to enable or disable ionCube is to click a button. The change takes effect within a minute, so you'll be able to proceed and install the app that you'd like without delay. The very same section will allow you to change the PHP version that's active for your account, as we support multiple releases on our advanced cloud platform. If you move to a version that you have not used so far, you'll have to activate ionCube Loader once again. More advanced users can use a php.ini file in a specific domain folder in order to set a PHP version different from the one for the entire account or enable/disable ionCube Loader.
IonCube in Semi-dedicated Hosting
IonCube Loader is available with all the Linux semi-dedicated hosting that we provide, and you won't encounter any problems if you would like to install and use some script application which requires the tool in order to operate appropriately. Enabling 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 shall take effect in a minute, therefore you can move forward with the app set up without delay. Due to the fact that we employ a revolutionary in-house built platform and we support a number of versions of PHP simultaneously, you will have to activate ionCube any time you switch to a version that you haven't used before. In addition, you'll 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 generating a php.ini file in a separate domain or subdomain folder and adding a few lines of program code within it.
