What exactly is IonCube? Why is it present on nearly every present-day web server running PHP?
A lot of script-driven applications, especially paid content management systems, encode their files to ensure that they won't be reverse engineered or tampered with. Most of them use an application called ionCube PHP Encoder to do this, so if you purchase a paid script and you would like to set it up in a website hosting account, an instrument called ionCube Loader has to be present on your server. Without it, you won't be able to install the script or if you somehow find a way to do that, it will not work appropriately because almost all of the script code will be encoded to a degree where it can't be interpreted. In this light, you have to make sure that ionCube Loader is installed if you get a new web hosting account and you wish to employ some paid web app. If you purchase a shared website hosting account and the instrument is not present, it cannot be added as the entire server PHP environment will have to be compiled again.
IonCube in Shared Hosting
If you purchase a shared hosting plan
through our company, it'll be set up on our custom cloud hosting platform where ionCube Loader is already present, so you won't have any kind of problems to run any script application that requires the instrument in order to function properly. We also supply a few different releases of PHP, which means that if you switch the version, you will have to enable ionCube once again. Our platform remembers the changes you make, so in case you go back to the earlier version of PHP that was active for your account, ionCube Loader will already be activated. Both the PHP version and the ionCube tool can be operated from the PHP Configuration section of our Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. Each change that you do takes literally just a single click and it'll take effect right away.
IonCube in Semi-dedicated Servers
Each semi-dedicated server
account that's generated on our cutting-edge cloud hosting platform features ionCube Loader support, and you can set up any script application which needs the software tool. Then use it in order to start and maintain your world wide web presence. You can activate ionCube from the PHP Configuration area of the Control Panel and it'll take you just a couple of clicks to do that. The change takes effect without delay, which means that you're able to proceed and set up the needed script inside your account. If you would like change the PHP version that's active for the account, you'll have to activate ionCube for the new version too. Our custom 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 can enable/disable ionCube Loader for each website hosted in your semi-dedicated account.
