A lot of script-driven apps, especially paid content management systems, encrypt their files in order 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 this, so when you obtain a paid script and you want to set it up in a website hosting account, an instrument called ionCube Loader needs to be present on the server. Without this, you can't install the script or if you somehow manage to do this, it won't function appropriately because most of the script code will be encrypted to a point where it cannot be interpreted. That's why, you need to ensure that ionCube Loader is present when you get a new hosting account and you'd like to work with some paid web app. If you acquire a shared web hosting account and the instrument is not present, it can't be added since your entire server PHP environment shall have to be compiled again.

IonCube in Shared Hosting

IonCube Loader is available with all of the shared hosting packages that we supply, so every time you require it in order to install and run a script application that requires it, you can enable it with a single click inside the Advanced area of the Hepsia Control Panel. Because you can change the PHP release that is active for your account from the same section, you'll need to enable the tool for every new version which you set. In case you are more experienced, you're able to employ a php.ini file in a domain or subdomain folder and set both the PHP version as well as the status of ionCube Loader for this particular website only, without affecting the whole account. Thus you can run both new and older script apps for multiple sites inside the same account - a thing that you can't do with lots of other website hosting service providers available on the market.

IonCube in Semi-dedicated Hosting

IonCube Loader is available with all of the Linux semi-dedicated hosting that we offer, which means that you will not encounter any kind of problems if you'd like to install and work with a script app which requires the instrument so as to function appropriately. Enabling it is as simple as clicking a button in the Advanced area of the Hepsia Control Panel that comes with all the semi-dedicated accounts and the change will take effect in a minute, so you're able to proceed with the app installation without delay. Because we use a cutting-edge tailor-made platform and we support multiple versions of PHP simultaneously, you will have to enable ionCube any time you switch to a version that you have not used before. In addition, you'll have the option to activate 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 a separate domain or subdomain folder and adding a few lines of code inside it.
