Plenty of script-driven apps, especially paid cms, encrypt their files in order to ensure that they won't be reverse engineered or tampered with. Most of them use an application named ionCube PHP Encoder to do that, so if you purchase a paid script and you want to set it up in a web hosting account, a software tool called ionCube Loader has to be present on the server. Without this, you cannot install the script or in case you somehow find a way to do that, it will not operate appropriately for the reason that almost all of the script code will be encoded to a point where it can't be interpreted. That's why, you need to ensure that ionCube Loader is set up if you get a fresh website hosting account and you would like to take advantage of some paid web application. If you buy a shared web hosting account and the tool is not present, it can't be added because the whole server PHP environment shall have to be compiled again.
IonCube in Shared Website Hosting
If you obtain a shared website hosting service
through our company, it will be created on our custom cloud hosting platform where ionCube Loader is already present, so you will not have any problems to run any script app which needs the instrument to run properly. In addition, we supply several different releases of PHP, therefore in case you switch the version, you will need to enable ionCube once again. Our platform remembers the adjustments you make, and in case you go back to the earlier version of PHP that was active for your account, ionCube Loader will already be activated. The PHP version and the ionCube tool can be managed through the PHP Configuration part of our Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Each change that you make takes literally just a mouse-click and it'll take effect right away.
IonCube in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you purchase a semi-dedicated server
plan from our company, you will be able to employ any script-driven app that needs ionCube Loader due to the fact that the software tool is available on all the servers which are a part of our cutting-edge cloud hosting platform. Furthermore, we support various versions of PHP, and if you move from PHP 4 to 5.2 or 5.3, for instance, you can enable ionCube for this particular release with just a click in your Hepsia Control Panel. Our system will remember your decision, and in case you switch back to the earlier release of PHP, the tool will already be active. For more tech-savvy users, we also offer the option to select the PHP version and whether ionCube will be active or not for a specific domain name without altering the settings for the whole web hosting account. This can be done by placing a php.ini file inside a domain folder with a few lines of program code.
