Plenty of script-driven applications, especially paid content management systems, encode their files so as to make sure that they will not be reverse engineered or tampered with. The majority of them use an app named ionCube PHP Encoder to do this, so when you buy a paid script and you want to set it up in a website hosting account, a software tool called ionCube Loader needs to be present on your server. Without this, you can't install the script or if you somehow manage to do that, it won't function properly for the reason that most of the script code will be encrypted to a degree where it can't be interpreted. That is why, you need to ensure that ionCube Loader is installed if you get a new website hosting account and you wish to employ some paid web application. If you obtain a shared website hosting account and the tool is not present, it can't be added because your entire server PHP environment will have to be compiled again.
IonCube in Shared Web Hosting
IonCube Loader is available with all the shared web hosting plans which we supply, so when you need it to set up and execute some script application which requires it, you can activate it with a single click inside the Advanced area of the Hepsia Control Panel. Because you can change the PHP release which is active for your account in the same section, you'll need to enable the tool for every new version which you set. When you are more experienced, you are 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 this particular website only, without affecting the entire account. In this way you will be able to operate both new and older script apps for multiple sites within the same account - something that you will not be able to do with a lot of other website hosting suppliers available on the market.
IonCube in Semi-dedicated Servers
Each semi-dedicated server account that's generated on our cutting-edge cloud website hosting platform has ionCube Loader support, which means that you can set up any kind of script app that requires the software tool. Then employ it to start and maintain your online presence. You can activate ionCube from the PHP Configuration section of your Control Panel and it'll take you just a couple of clicks to do this. Your change takes effect without delay, so you will be able to go ahead and set up the needed script inside your account. If you choose to switch the PHP version which is active for your account, you'll have to enable ionCube for the new version too. Our tailor-made platform also allows you to have a different PHP version for each domain or subdomain, which 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.
