Plenty of script-driven apps, particularly paid cms, encrypt their files to make sure that they won't be reverse engineered or tampered with. Many of them use an application known as ionCube PHP Encoder to do this, so if you buy a paid script and you want to set it up in a hosting account, a tool known as ionCube Loader must be present on the server. Without this, you won't be able to install the script or in case you somehow find a way to do that, it won't work efficiently as almost all of the script code will be encoded to a degree where it cannot be interpreted. That is why, you have to ensure that ionCube Loader is present when you get a fresh web hosting account and you'd like to work with some paid web application. If you get a shared web hosting account and the instrument is not present, it can't be added as the whole server PHP environment shall have to be compiled again.
IonCube in Website Hosting
If you buy a Linux website hosting package from our company, it'll be set up on our in-house built cloud hosting platform where ionCube Loader is already present, so you will not have any problems to manage any script application that needs the tool so as to function appropriately. We also supply several different releases of PHP, therefore if you switch the version, you'll have to activate ionCube once again. Our platform remembers the adjustments you make, so in case you go back to the previous version of PHP which was active for your account, ionCube Loader will already be turned on. Both the PHP version as well as the ionCube instrument can be operated through the PHP Configuration section of our Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Every change that you do takes literally just a mouse-click and it will take effect instantly.
IonCube in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you purchase a semi-dedicated server plan from us, you will be able to employ any kind of script-driven app which needs ionCube Loader as the tool is installed on all of the servers that are a part of our innovative cloud hosting platform. In addition, we support different versions of PHP, therefore if you move from PHP 4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4, 5.5, 5.6, 7.0, 7.1, 7.2, 7.3, 7.4, 8.0, 8.1, 8.2, for example, you can enable ionCube for that particular release with just a click from your Hepsia Control Panel. Our system will remember your decision, and if you switch back to the earlier release of PHP, the software instrument will already be active. For more tech-savvy users, we also provide the option to pick the PHP version and whether ionCube will be active or not for a specific domain name without altering the settings for the entire web hosting account. This can be done by putting a php.ini file within a domain folder with a couple of lines of code.
