A lot of script-driven apps, especially paid content management systems, encrypt their files in order to make sure that they won't be reverse engineered or tampered with. Many of them use an application named ionCube PHP Encoder to do this, so, in case you purchase a paid script and you wish to install it in a website hosting account, a tool called ionCube Loader has to be present on the server. Without having it, you won't be able to install the script or in case you somehow find a way to do that, it won't operate properly for the reason that almost all of the script code will be encrypted to a point where it cannot be interpreted. That's why, you should make sure that ionCube Loader is present when you get a new hosting account and you wish to take advantage of some paid web application. If you obtain a shared web hosting account and the instrument is not present, it cannot be added as the whole server PHP environment will have to be compiled again.

IonCube in Cloud Hosting

IonCube Loader comes with all the cloud hosting packages which we supply, so any time you need it to set up and execute a script app which needs it, you can enable it with a single click from the Advanced area of the Hepsia Control Panel. Because you're able to change the PHP version that is active for your account in the same section, you need to activate the tool for every new version that you set. When you are more skillful, you're able to take advantage of a php.ini file in a domain or subdomain folder and set the PHP version and the status of ionCube Loader for this particular site only, without affecting the entire account. In this way you're able to operate both new and older script apps for multiple sites within the same account - a thing that you can't do with numerous other hosting providers available on the market.

Each semi-dedicated server account that's set up on our cutting-edge cloud hosting platform comes with ionCube Loader support, so you can install any kind of script app which needs the tool. Then employ it to launch and maintain your world wide web presence. You can activate ionCube from the PHP Configuration section of the Control Panel and it'll take you just a few clicks to do that. The change will take effect instantly, so you'll be able to proceed and install the needed script inside your account. If you decide to change the PHP version that is active for the account, you will have to enable ionCube for the new release too. Our in-house built platform also allows you to have a different PHP version for each and every domain or subdomain, which is done with a php.ini file in every domain folder. In the same way, you are able to enable/disable ionCube Loader for each website hosted in your semi-dedicated account.
