Plenty of script-driven applications, particularly paid content management systems, encrypt their files to make sure that they will not be reverse engineered or tampered with. Many of them use an app known as ionCube PHP Encoder to do this, so, in case you obtain a paid script and you want to set it up in a web hosting account, a tool called ionCube Loader has to be present on the server. Without this, you will not be able to install the script or if you somehow manage to do that, it won't work effectively due to the fact that almost all of the script code will be encrypted to a point where it can't be interpreted. In this light, you need to ensure that ionCube Loader is installed when you get a new hosting account and you'd like to work with some paid web app. If you acquire a shared hosting account and the instrument is not present, it can't be added because your entire server PHP environment will have to be compiled again.
IonCube in Shared Hosting
When you get a Linux shared hosting
from our company, it'll be set up on our tailor-made cloud hosting platform where ionCube Loader is already set up, so you will not have any problems to manage any script app which requires the tool in order to function properly. Furthermore, we supply a few different releases of PHP, which means that if you switch the version, you will have to activate ionCube again. Our system remembers the changes you make, which means that in case you go back to the previous version of PHP which was active for your account, ionCube Loader will already be enabled. The PHP version and the ionCube instrument can be managed from the PHP Configuration section of our Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Every adjustment that you make takes literally just a click and it takes effect at once.
IonCube in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you obtain a semi-dedicated server
plan from us, you'll be able to employ any script-driven app which needs ionCube Loader because the tool is installed on all the servers which are part of our innovative cloud web 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 that particular release with just a click from your Hepsia Control Panel. Our platform will remember your decision, and in case you switch back to the earlier release of PHP, the software instrument will already be active. For more experienced users, we also offer the option to select the PHP version and whether ionCube will be active or not for a particular domain name without altering the settings for the entire web hosting account. This is done by putting a php.ini file within a domain folder with several lines of code.
