Plenty of script-driven applications, particularly paid content management systems, encode their files so as to make sure that they will not be reverse engineered or tampered with. Most of them use an application known as ionCube PHP Encoder to do this, so if you get a paid script and you intend to install it in a web hosting account, a software tool called ionCube Loader needs to be present on the server. Without this, you will not be able to install the script or in case you somehow manage to do this, it will not operate effectively as almost all of the script code will be encoded to a point where it cannot be interpreted. In this light, you have to make sure that ionCube Loader is installed if you get a fresh hosting account and you want to employ some paid web application. If you buy a shared hosting account and the instrument is not present, it can't be added as the whole server PHP environment will have to be compiled again.
IonCube in Cloud Web Hosting
If you buy a Linux cloud web hosting service through our company, it will be created on our custom-made cloud platform where ionCube Loader is already installed, so you won't have any kind of problems to manage any script application that requires the instrument to function properly. Furthermore, we supply several different versions of PHP, therefore if you change the version, you'll have to activate ionCube again. Our system remembers the changes you make, so in case you switch back to the previous version of PHP that was active for your account, ionCube Loader will already be turned on. The PHP version and the ionCube tool can be operated through the PHP Configuration area of our Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Each adjustment that you do takes literally just a mouse-click and it'll take effect immediately.
IonCube in Semi-dedicated Servers
Each semi-dedicated server account that is generated on our cutting-edge cloud hosting platform has ionCube Loader support, and you can install any kind of script app that requires the tool. Then use it in order to start and maintain your online presence. You can enable ionCube from the PHP Configuration area of your Control Panel and it will take you no more than a couple of clicks to do this. The change takes effect without delay, which means that you'll be able to proceed and install the needed script in your account. If you would like change the PHP version that is active for the account, you'll need to enable ionCube for the new release too. Our custom-built platform also allows you to have a different PHP version for each and every domain or subdomain, that is done with a php.ini file in each domain folder. In the same way, you'll be able to enable/disable ionCube Loader for each site hosted in your semi-dedicated account.
