Plenty of script-driven apps, especially paid cms, encrypt their files to ensure that they will not be reverse engineered or tampered with. Most of them use an app named ionCube PHP Encoder to do that, so if you get a paid script and you want to install it in a web hosting account, an instrument called ionCube Loader must be present on your server. Without this, you will not be able to install the script or in case you somehow manage to do that, it won't operate properly as most of the script code will be encrypted to a degree where it can't be interpreted. That's why, you need to make sure that ionCube Loader is installed when you get a fresh web hosting account and you want to work with some paid web app. If you get a shared website hosting account and the tool is not present, it cannot be added since the entire server PHP environment shall have to be compiled again.
IonCube in Cloud Hosting
IonCube Loader is provided with all cloud hosting packages that we provide, so every time you require it to install and run some script application which needs it, you can enable it with a click inside the Advanced section of the Hepsia Control Panel. Because you'll be able to switch the PHP version that is active for your account from the same section, you will have to enable the instrument for every new version that you set. When you're more skillful, you're able to use a php.ini file in a domain or subdomain folder and set the PHP version as well as the status of ionCube Loader for this particular website only, without affecting the entire account. This way you are able to manage both new and older script applications for multiple websites within the same account - a thing that you cannot do with many other website hosting suppliers out there.
IonCube in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Every single semi-dedicated server account that's set up on our cutting-edge cloud web hosting platform comes with ionCube Loader support, and you will be able to install any kind of script app which requires the software tool. Then use it to launch and maintain your internet presence. You can enable ionCube from the PHP Configuration section of your Control Panel and it'll take you just a couple of clicks to do that. The change will take effect instantly, which means that you're able to go ahead and install the needed script in your account. If you'd like to switch the PHP version which is active for the account, you should activate ionCube for the new release too. Our tailor-made platform also allows you to have a different PHP version for each 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 site hosted in your semi-dedicated account.
