What exactly is IonCube? Why is it present on nearly every present-day hosting server running PHP?
A lot of script-driven apps, particularly paid cms, encode their files in order to ensure that they won't be reverse engineered or tampered with. Most of them use an app known as ionCube PHP Encoder to do that, so when you acquire a paid script and you'd like to set it up in a web hosting account, an instrument known as ionCube Loader must be present on the server. Without this, you can't install the script or if you somehow manage to do this, it won't work effectively due to the fact that almost all of the script code will be encoded to a degree where it cannot be interpreted. That is why, you should make sure that ionCube Loader is present when you get a fresh website hosting account and you'd like to employ some paid web application. If you get a shared web hosting account and the instrument is not present, it cannot be added as your entire server PHP environment shall have to be compiled again.
IonCube in Cloud Hosting
IonCube Loader is available with all the cloud hosting
plans which we provide, so any time you require it in order to set up and execute some script application which needs it, you can enable it with a single click from the Advanced area of your Hepsia Control Panel. Due to the fact that you'll be able to switch the PHP version which is active for your account in the same section, you need to activate the tool for any new version that you set. If you're more skillful, you'll be able to employ a php.ini file in a domain or subdomain folder and set the PHP version and the status of ionCube Loader for this particular website only, without affecting the entire account. In this way you are able to operate both new and older script applications for multiple sites within the same account - a thing that you can't do with various other website hosting providers on the market.
IonCube in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Because all semi-dedicated server
accounts are created on our advanced cluster platform and ionCube Loader is available on it, you'll be able to use any script application which needs this software tool in order to function efficiently. With a couple of clicks in the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel you will be able to activate or deactivate ionCube for the PHP version that is currently active for your account. Because we support a couple of releases of PHP concurrently, you will have to do this each time you move to a different version, and when you revert back to a release which you've already used, our system will remember your choice and ionCube Loader will already be active. When you have several sites in the same account and they need different versions of PHP, you're able to set up a php.ini file in every single domain folder and with a couple of lines of program code you'll be able to define both the PHP release and the status of ionCube no matter what is selected for the website hosting account altogether.
