Plenty of script-driven apps, particularly paid cms, encode their files in order to ensure that they will not be reverse engineered or tampered with. The majority of them use an app known as ionCube PHP Encoder to do this, so if you buy a paid script and you wish to set it up in a website hosting account, an instrument called ionCube Loader has to be present on the server. Without having it, you can't install the script or in case you somehow manage to do this, it will not operate properly as most of the script code will be encoded to a degree where it can't be interpreted. In this light, you need to ensure that ionCube Loader is present when you get a new hosting account and you want to use some paid web app. If you buy a shared hosting account and the instrument is not present, it can't be added because the whole server PHP environment will have to be compiled again.
IonCube in Shared Web Hosting
IonCube Loader is supplied with every single shared web hosting that we supply and you're able to activate it at any time with only a couple of clicks, so you will be able to take advantage of script apps which need it. You're able to do that through the PHP Configuration area of the Hepsia Control Panel and all it'll take to enable or deactivate ionCube is to click a single button. The change will take effect within a minute, therefore you will be able to proceed and install the application that you need without delay. The very same section allows you to switch the PHP release which is active for your account, as we support numerous releases on our cutting-edge cloud hosting platform. In case you move to a version that you have not used so far, you will have to activate 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
Each and every semi-dedicated server account which is set up on our cutting-edge cloud website hosting platform has ionCube Loader support, and you'll be able to set up any script app that requires the software tool. Then employ it in order to launch and maintain your online presence.

Our in-house 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 every domain folder.
