Lots of script-driven applications, especially paid cms, encrypt their files so as to ensure that they won't be reverse engineered or tampered with. The majority of them use an application called ionCube PHP Encoder to do that, so when you buy a paid script and you would like to install it in a website hosting account, an instrument known as ionCube Loader must be present on the server. Without having it, you won't be able to install the script or in case you somehow find a way to do that, it won't operate appropriately because most of the script code will be encoded to a degree where it cannot be interpreted. In this light, you need to ensure that ionCube Loader is installed when you get a fresh website hosting account and you'd like to take advantage of some paid web application. If you acquire a shared web hosting account and the tool is not present, it cannot be added since your entire server PHP environment shall have to be compiled again.

IonCube in Shared Website Hosting

IonCube Loader is provided with all shared website hosting packages that we offer, so any time you need it in order to install and execute a script app which needs it, you can activate it with a single click in the Advanced section of your Hepsia Control Panel. Due to the fact that you'll be able to switch the PHP release which is active for your account from the same section, you'll need to enable the tool for each new version which you set. If you are more experienced, you are able to take advantage of 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 site only, without affecting the whole account. Thus you'll be able to run both new and older script applications for multiple sites inside the same account - something that you will not be able to do with various other hosting service providers on the market.

IonCube in Semi-dedicated Hosting

IonCube Loader is available with all semi-dedicated hosting that we offer, and you won't experience any problems in case you would like to install and use some script application that requires the software tool to function properly. Enabling it is as easy as clicking a button inside the Advanced area of the Hepsia Control Panel that comes with all of the semi-dedicated accounts and the change shall take effect in less than a minute, which means that you're able to proceed with the application set up without delay. As we use a revolutionary tailor-made platform and we support a number of versions of PHP simultaneously, you'll need to activate ionCube every time you switch to a version that you have not used before. In addition, you'll have the option to activate ionCube loader and even to set a PHP release different from the one in the account as a whole by creating a php.ini file in an individual domain or subdomain folder and adding a few lines of code within it.
