Plenty of script-driven applications, especially paid cms, encrypt their files so as to make sure that they won't be reverse engineered or tampered with. The majority of them use an application known as ionCube PHP Encoder to do that, so, in case you get a paid script and you'd like to install it in a web hosting account, a software instrument known as ionCube Loader needs to be present on your server. Without it, you will not be able to install the script or in case you somehow find a way to do this, it won't operate effectively for the reason that almost all of the script code will be encrypted to a point where it cannot be interpreted. That is why, you need to ensure that ionCube Loader is installed if you get a fresh website hosting account and you'd like to take advantage of some paid web app. If you get a shared website hosting account and the tool is not present, it can't be added because the whole server PHP environment shall have to be compiled again.
IonCube in Shared Web Hosting
IonCube Loader is available with all of the shared web hosting
plans that we supply, so when you require it to install and run some script app that needs it, you can activate it with a single click inside the Advanced section of your Hepsia Control Panel. Because you're able to change the PHP release which is active for your account in the same section, you'll need to activate the instrument for each new version which you set. In case you are more experienced, you are able to employ a php.ini file in a domain or subdomain folder and set the PHP version and the status of ionCube Loader for that particular website only, without affecting the entire account. In this way you are able to run both new and older script apps for multiple websites in the same account - a thing that you won't be able to do with many other website hosting service providers on the market.
IonCube in Semi-dedicated Servers
IonCube Loader is provided with all semi-dedicated hosting plans
that we provide, so you won't have any problems in case you'd like to set up and use a script application which requires the software tool to operate properly. Enabling it is as easy as clicking a single button inside the Advanced area of the Hepsia Control Panel which comes with all of the semi-dedicated accounts and the change shall take effect in a minute, which means that you can proceed with the application set up without any delays. As we employ an avant-garde tailor-made platform and we support several versions of PHP at the same time, you will 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 enable ionCube loader and even to set a PHP release different from the one in the account as a whole by making a php.ini file in a separate domain or subdomain folder and adding a few lines of program code inside it.
