A lot of script-driven apps, especially paid cms, encrypt their files to make sure that they will not be reverse engineered or tampered with. Most of them use an app called ionCube PHP Encoder to do this, so when you obtain a paid script and you'd like to install it in a hosting account, an instrument called ionCube Loader needs to be present on your server. Without having it, you will not be able to install the script or if you somehow manage to do this, it won't operate effectively due to the fact that almost all of the script code will be encrypted to a degree where it cannot be interpreted. That is why, you should make sure that ionCube Loader is present if you get a fresh web hosting account and you'd like to work with some paid web app. If you get a shared web hosting account and the instrument is not present, it can't be added as the entire server PHP environment shall have to be compiled again.

IonCube in Shared Web Hosting

IonCube Loader is provided with all shared web hosting plans which we provide, so any time you require it to install and execute a script app that requires it, you can enable it with a click from the Advanced area of the Hepsia Control Panel. Since you can switch the PHP version which is active for your account from the same section, you'll need to enable the tool for any new version that you set. If you're more experienced, you're able to use 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 website only, without affecting the whole account. In this way you are able to operate both new and older script apps for multiple websites inside the same account - something that you can't do with a lot of other hosting providers out there.

IonCube in Semi-dedicated Hosting

As all the semi-dedicated server accounts are set up on our advanced cluster platform and ionCube Loader is available on it, you will be able to use any script app which requires the tool so as to run efficiently. With several clicks in the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel you will be able to activate or deactivate ionCube for the PHP version that's currently active for the account. As we support multiple versions of PHP at the same time, you will have to do that each time you switch to a different release, but if you revert back to a release that you have already used, our system will remember your preference and ionCube Loader will already be activated. When you have multiple sites inside the same account and they need different releases of PHP, you're able to set up a php.ini file in each and every domain folder and with a couple of lines of program code you are able to define both the PHP release plus the status of ionCube irrespective of what is selected for the hosting account as a whole.
