Plenty of script-driven apps, particularly paid cms, encode their files in order to make sure that they won't be reverse engineered or tampered with. The majority of them use an application named ionCube PHP Encoder to do this, so when you purchase a paid script and you would like to install it in a website hosting account, a software instrument called ionCube Loader has to be present on the server. Without this, you can't install the script or in case you somehow manage to do this, it won't work efficiently because most of the script code will be encrypted to a point where it cannot be interpreted. In this light, you have to make sure that ionCube Loader is set up when you get a fresh hosting account and you wish to use some paid web app. If you buy a shared web hosting account and the tool is not present, it can't be added because your entire server PHP environment will have to be compiled again.
IonCube in Shared Hosting
IonCube Loader comes with all the shared hosting plans which we provide, so any time you require it in order to install and run some script app that requires it, you can enable it with a click from the Advanced section of the Hepsia Control Panel. Since you are able to switch the PHP version that's active for your account in the same section, you need to activate the tool for any new version which you set. When you are more skillful, you will be 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 site only, without affecting the entire account. In this way you can manage both new and older script applications for multiple sites within the same account - something that you won't be able to do with numerous other hosting providers on the market.
IonCube in Semi-dedicated Servers
Every single semi-dedicated server account that's created on our outstanding cloud website hosting platform includes ionCube Loader support, so you can set up any script application which needs the software tool. Then employ it to start and maintain your internet presence. You can activate ionCube through the PHP Configuration area of the Control Panel and it'll take you no more than a few clicks to do this. The change will take effect instantly, so you'll be able to go ahead and set up the needed script in your account. If you decide to switch the PHP version that is active for the account, you need to enable ionCube for the new release as well. Our custom-made platform also allows you to have a different PHP release for each domain or subdomain, which is done with a php.ini file in each domain folder. In the same way, you'll be able to enable/disable ionCube Loader for each individual site hosted in your semi-dedicated account.
