Plenty of script-driven apps, particularly paid cms, encode their files in order to make sure that they won't be reverse engineered or tampered with. Most of them use an app called ionCube PHP Encoder to do this, so, in case you purchase a paid script and you'd like to install it in a hosting account, an instrument called ionCube Loader has to be present on your server. Without having it, you will not be able to install the script or if you somehow find a way to do this, it will not work properly due to the fact that almost all of the script code will be encrypted to a degree where it can't be interpreted. That's why, you need to ensure that ionCube Loader is present if you get a fresh hosting account and you would like to take advantage of some paid web app. If you buy a shared website hosting account and the instrument is not present, it can't be added as your entire server PHP environment shall have to be compiled again.
IonCube in Cloud Hosting
IonCube Loader is available on all of the web servers that are part of our cloud hosting platform, which means that regardless of the cloud hosting
that you get during the signup process, you'll be able to activate it from your Hepsia Control Panel. The process is as easy as clicking an On/Off button in the Advanced section, so even if this is your first web hosting account ever, you won't have to do anything complicated. The exact same section allows you to choose the PHP version for your account (4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4, 5.5), and in case you want to switch to another version, you only have to activate ionCube Loader for it too. As our platform is flexible, you may even set a different PHP version and another status of ionCube by using 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 tech support team will assist you quickly.
IonCube in Semi-dedicated Servers
Each and every semi-dedicated server
account that's created on our modern cloud website hosting platform features ionCube Loader support, and you'll be able to install any script application which needs the tool. Then use it to start and maintain your web presence. You can activate ionCube from the PHP Configuration section of the Control Panel and it'll take you just a couple of clicks to do this. Your change takes effect instantly, which means that you are able to go ahead and set up the needed script in your account. If you'd like to switch the PHP version that's active for your account, you'll need to activate ionCube for the new release too. Our in-house made platform also allows you to have a different PHP release for each and every domain or subdomain, that is done with a php.ini file in each domain folder. In the same way, you can enable/disable ionCube Loader for each individual website hosted in your semi-dedicated account.
