Lots of script-driven apps, especially paid cms, encrypt their files in order to make sure that they will not be reverse engineered or tampered with. The majority of them use an app known as ionCube PHP Encoder to do that, so, in case you purchase a paid script and you intend to install it in a hosting account, a software tool known as ionCube Loader must 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 work efficiently for the reason that most of the script code will be encrypted to a degree where it can't be interpreted. That is why, you should ensure that ionCube Loader is installed when you get a fresh website hosting account and you wish to employ some paid web app. If you obtain a shared web hosting account and the instrument is not present, it cannot be added because the whole server PHP environment will have to be compiled again.
IonCube in Cloud Hosting
IonCube Loader is a part of all web servers that are part of our cloud hosting platform, which means that whatever the cloud hosting service that you choose during the signup process, you can activate it through your Hepsia Control Panel. This process is as simple as right-clicking an On/Off button from the Advanced section, so even if this will be your first hosting account ever, you won't have to do anything complicated. The very same section allows you to select the PHP version for your account (4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4, 5.5), so if you want to move to some other version, you just have to activate ionCube Loader for it too. Since our platform is flexible, you can even set some other PHP version and another status of ionCube by employing a php.ini file in every domain folder. If this is something you wish to do but you do not have much experience, the 24/7 support team will be able to help you quickly.
IonCube in Semi-dedicated Servers
Each and every semi-dedicated server account which is generated on our outstanding cloud website hosting platform comes with ionCube Loader support, which means that you will be able to set up any kind of script app which needs the software tool. Then use it in order to launch and maintain your internet presence. You can activate ionCube through the PHP Configuration section of the Control Panel and it'll take you no more than a few clicks to do that. Your change will take effect without delay, so you'll be able to go ahead and set up the needed script inside your account. If you would like switch the PHP version which is active for the account, you will need to activate ionCube for the new version as well. Our in-house 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 every 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.
