Lots of script-driven applications, particularly paid content management systems, encode their files in order to make sure that they won't be reverse engineered or tampered with. The majority of them use an app known as ionCube PHP Encoder to do this, so if you acquire a paid script and you wish to install it in a website hosting account, an instrument called ionCube Loader has to be present on your server. Without having it, you cannot install the script or if you somehow find a way to do this, it won't function effectively for the reason that almost all of the script code will be encoded to a point where it can't be interpreted. That's why, you need to ensure that ionCube Loader is present if you get a new hosting account and you'd like to take advantage of some paid web application. If you get a shared website hosting account and the instrument is not present, it can't be added since the whole server PHP environment shall have to be compiled again.
IonCube in Website Hosting
IonCube Loader is supplied with every single Linux website hosting that we supply and you are able to enable it at any time with only a couple of clicks, so you can work with script applications that require it. You are able to do this from the PHP Configuration section of your Hepsia Control Panel and all it will take to activate or disable ionCube is to click a button. The change will take effect within a minute, so you'll be able to go ahead and install the app that you need without delay. The very same section will allow you to change the PHP release which is active for your account, because we support numerous versions on our state-of-the-art cloud platform. In case you switch to a release that you have not used so far, you will need to enable ionCube Loader once again. Experienced users will be able to use a php.ini file in a specific domain folder so as to set a PHP release different from the one for the entire account or enable/disable ionCube Loader.
IonCube in Semi-dedicated Servers
Due to the fact that all semi-dedicated server accounts are created on our advanced cluster platform and ionCube Loader is available on it, you will be able to use any script application which requires the software tool so as to function efficiently. With several clicks in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel you are able to activate or deactivate ionCube for the PHP version that is currently active for the account. Since we support several versions of PHP concurrently, you'll need to do that each and every time you switch to a different release, but when you revert back to a version which you have already used, our system will remember your preference and ionCube Loader will already be activated. In case you have a couple of sites in the same account and they require different versions of PHP, you are able to set up a php.ini file in every single domain folder and with several lines of code you can define both the PHP version and the status of ionCube no matter what is selected for the hosting account altogether.
