Lots of script-driven apps, particularly paid cms, encrypt their files in order to make sure that they won't be reverse engineered or tampered with. Most of them use an app called ionCube PHP Encoder to do this, so if you buy a paid script and you would like to install it in a web hosting account, a tool known as ionCube Loader has to be present on your server. Without it, you cannot install the script or if you somehow manage to do this, it won't function properly due to the fact that most of the script code will be encrypted to a degree where it cannot be interpreted. That is why, you need to make sure that ionCube Loader is set up if you get a fresh hosting account and you wish to work with some paid web app. If you purchase a shared web hosting account and the instrument is not present, it cannot be added since the entire server PHP environment will have to be compiled again.
IonCube in Shared Website Hosting
IonCube Loader is supplied with each and every Linux shared website hosting service that we supply and you're able to activate it anytime with only a couple of clicks, so you'll be able to use script apps which require it. You're able to do that from the PHP Configuration area of your Hepsia Control Panel and all it takes to activate or deactivate ionCube is to click a single button. The change will take effect within a minute, so you'll be able to go ahead and set up the application that you need right away. The very same section will allow you to switch the PHP version which is active for your account, as we support numerous versions on our state-of-the-art cloud platform. In case you switch to a version that you haven't used to date, you will have to enable ionCube Loader once again. Experienced users can use a php.ini file in a specific domain folder in order to set a PHP release different from the one for the entire account or enable/disable ionCube Loader.
IonCube in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you purchase a semi-dedicated server plan from us, you'll be able to take advantage of any kind of script-driven app which requires ionCube Loader for the reason that the software tool comes with all servers that are part of our modern cloud hosting platform. Furthermore, we support different releases of PHP, therefore if you switch from PHP 4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4, 5.5, 5.6, 7.0, 7.1, 7.2, 7.3, 7.4, 8.0, 8.1, 8.2, for example, you can activate ionCube for that particular release with only a click in your Hepsia Control Panel. Our platform will remember your decision, and in case you move back to the previous release of PHP, the tool will already be active. For more tech-savvy users, we also offer the option to select the PHP version and if ionCube will be active or not for a particular domain name without altering the settings for the whole website hosting account. This can be done by placing a php.ini file inside a domain folder with a few lines of code.
