Plenty of script-driven apps, particularly paid cms, encrypt their files in order to make sure that they won't be reverse engineered or tampered with. Most of them use an app named ionCube PHP Encoder to do this, so if you purchase a paid script and you would like to set it up in a web hosting account, a tool known as ionCube Loader has to be present on the server. Without it, you won't be able to install the script or in case you somehow find a way to do this, it will not work efficiently as most of the script code will be encrypted to a degree where it can't 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 would like to use some paid web application. If you get a shared website hosting account and the tool is not present, it cannot be added because your entire server PHP environment will have to be compiled again.
IonCube in Website Hosting
IonCube Loader comes with all of the website hosting plans which we supply, so every time you require it to set up and run a script application which needs it, you can activate it with a single click inside the Advanced section of your Hepsia Control Panel. Since you are able to switch the PHP version that's active for your account in the same section, you will have to activate the instrument for every new version that you set. In case you are more skillful, you are able to take advantage of a php.ini file in a domain or subdomain folder and set both the PHP version and the status of ionCube Loader for that particular site only, without affecting the entire account. Thus you can operate both new and older script apps for multiple sites in the same account - something that you cannot do with various other web hosting service providers out there.
IonCube in Semi-dedicated Servers
Since all the semi-dedicated server accounts are created on our advanced cluster platform and ionCube Loader is available on it, you'll be able to use any script application which requires the tool to run properly. With a couple of clicks in your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel you are able to activate or deactivate ionCube for the PHP version that's currently active for the account. Since we support multiple releases of PHP at the same time, you will have to do that each and every time you move to a different release, but if you revert back to a release which you have already used, our system will remember your choice and ionCube Loader will already be active. When you have multiple websites inside the same account and they need different versions of PHP, you are able to create a php.ini file in each and every domain folder and with a couple of lines of code you will be able to define both the PHP version and the status of ionCube irrespective of what is selected for the web hosting account as a whole.
