A lot of script-driven applications, particularly paid content management systems, encode their files so as to make sure that they won't be reverse engineered or tampered with. The majority of them use an app known as ionCube PHP Encoder to do that, so, in case you purchase a paid script and you would like to set it up in a website hosting account, a software tool known as ionCube Loader must be present on the server. Without having it, you cannot install the script or in case you somehow manage to do this, it will not work effectively because most of the script code will be encoded to a degree where it can't be interpreted. In this light, you have to ensure that ionCube Loader is present if you get a fresh hosting account and you wish to employ some paid web app. If you obtain a shared hosting account and the instrument is not present, it cannot be added as the whole server PHP environment will have to be compiled again.

IonCube in Shared Website Hosting

IonCube Loader is supplied with each and every shared website hosting that we supply and you'll be able to enable it anytime with just a few clicks, so you'll be able to employ script applications which require it. You can do that through the PHP Configuration area of your Hepsia Control Panel and all it takes to enable or disable ionCube is to click a button. The change will take effect in a minute, so you'll be able to proceed and set up the application that you need right away. The very same section allows you to change the PHP release that is active for your account, because we support multiple versions on our advanced cloud platform. If you move to a version that you've never used to date, you'll need to activate ionCube Loader once again. More advanced users can use a php.ini file in a particular domain folder to set a PHP version different from the one for the entire account or enable/disable ionCube Loader.
