Plenty of script-driven applications, particularly paid content management systems, encode their files so as to make sure that they won't be reverse engineered or tampered with. The majority of them use an app known as ionCube PHP Encoder to do this, so when you purchase a paid script and you want to set it up in a website hosting account, a software instrument called 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 manage to do that, it will not function properly because almost all of the script code will be encoded to a degree where it cannot be interpreted. That's why, you have to make sure that ionCube Loader is present if you get a new web hosting account and you wish to take advantage of some paid web application. If you get a shared website hosting account and the instrument is not present, it cannot be added since the whole server PHP environment shall have to be compiled again.
IonCube in Shared Hosting
When you aquire a Linux shared package from our company, it'll be created on our in-house made cloud hosting platform where ionCube Loader is already present, so you will not have any kind of problems to run any script app which requires the instrument in order to run appropriately. Furthermore, we offer several different versions of PHP, which means that if you change the version, you will need to enable ionCube once again. Our platform remembers the changes you make, and when you switch back to the earlier version of PHP that was active for your account, ionCube Loader will already be turned on. Both the PHP version and the ionCube tool can be operated from the PHP Configuration area of our Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Any change that you make takes literally just a single click and it takes effect at once.
IonCube in Semi-dedicated Hosting
IonCube Loader is provided with all Linux semi-dedicated hosting packages that we supply, which means that you will not experience any kind of problems if you would like to install and work with some script application which requires the instrument to operate appropriately. Activating it is as simple as clicking a button in the Advanced part of the Hepsia Control Panel which comes with all the semi-dedicated accounts and the change will take effect in less than a minute, therefore you can proceed with the app set up without any delays. For the reason that we employ a hi-tech in-house made platform and we support several versions of PHP at the same time, you'll have to activate ionCube every time you move to a version that you haven't used before. In addition, you'll have the option to activate ionCube loader and even to set a PHP version different from the one in the account as a whole by making a php.ini file in an individual domain or subdomain folder and adding a couple of lines of program code inside it.
