Learn what IonCube is as well as the reasons why it’s installed on nearly every server running PHP today.
Plenty of script-driven apps, especially paid cms, encrypt their files in order to make sure that they will not be reverse engineered or tampered with. The majority of them use an application known as ionCube PHP Encoder to do that, so, in case you obtain a paid script and you intend to set it up in a hosting account, an instrument called ionCube Loader has to be present on the server. Without this, you won't be able to install the script or in case you somehow manage to do this, it won't function appropriately because almost all of the script code will be encoded to a point where it can't be interpreted. That's why, you should make sure that ionCube Loader is present when you get a new web hosting account and you want to use some paid web application. If you acquire a shared 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 Hosting
When you get a shared hosting plan
through us, it'll be set up on our custom cloud platform where ionCube Loader is already set up, so you will not have any kind of problems to manage any script application which needs the instrument in order to run properly. We also provide several different versions of PHP, so in case you switch the version, you need to enable ionCube again. Our system remembers the changes you make, and if you move back to the previous version of PHP that was active for your account, ionCube Loader will already be enabled. The PHP version and the ionCube instrument can be managed through the PHP Configuration section of our Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. Every change that you make takes literally just a mouse-click and it takes effect instantly.
IonCube in Semi-dedicated Servers
IonCube Loader is available with all semi-dedicated plans
that we offer, so you will not have any problems if you would like to install and work with some script app that requires the tool in order to operate appropriately. Activating it is as simple as clicking a button in the Advanced part of the Hepsia Control Panel that comes with all of the semi-dedicated accounts and the change will take effect in a minute, which means that you will be able to move forward with the application set up without any delays. Because we use an innovative tailor-made platform and we support multiple versions of PHP simultaneously, you will need to activate ionCube any time you switch to a version that you have not used before. Additionally, you have the option to activate ionCube loader or even to set a PHP release different from the one in the account as a whole by making a php.ini file in an individual domain or subdomain folder and adding several lines of code within it.
