Lots of script-driven apps, particularly paid cms, encrypt their files to make sure that they will not be reverse engineered or tampered with. Most of them use an app known as ionCube PHP Encoder to do that, so, in case you buy a paid script and you wish to install it in a website hosting account, a software instrument known as ionCube Loader must be present on your server. Without it, you can't install the script or if you somehow find a way to do that, it will not work efficiently for the reason 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 present when you get a fresh website hosting account and you want to employ some paid web application. If you purchase a shared hosting account and the tool is not present, it cannot be added as your entire server PHP environment will have to be compiled again.
IonCube in Cloud Hosting
IonCube Loader is available with all the cloud hosting packages that we provide, so every time you need it to install and run a script application which requires it, you can enable it with a click from the Advanced section of your Hepsia Control Panel. Since you are able to change the PHP release which is active for your account in the same section, you'll have to enable the instrument for every new version that you set. When you are more experienced, you're able to use a php.ini file in a domain or subdomain folder and set both the PHP version as well as the status of ionCube Loader for that particular site only, without affecting the whole account. Thus you can run both new and older script apps for multiple websites within the same account - something that you cannot do with numerous other hosting suppliers on the market.
IonCube in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Since all semi-dedicated server accounts are set up on our advanced cluster platform and ionCube Loader is available on it, you will be able to use any script application which needs this software tool to run effectively. With just a few clicks in the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel you're able to activate or deactivate ionCube for the PHP version which is currently active for the account. Because we support a couple of releases of PHP at the same time, you'll need to do that each time you move to a new release, and when you revert back to a release that you have already used, our system will remember your choice and ionCube Loader will already be active. In case you have multiple sites in the same account and they require different versions of PHP, you are able to create a php.ini file in each and every domain folder and with several lines of code you will be able to define both the PHP release plus the status of ionCube irrespective of what is selected for the website hosting account as a whole.
