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 cms, encode their files to make sure that they will not be reverse engineered or tampered with. Many of them use an application known as ionCube PHP Encoder to do this, so, in case you buy a paid script and you would like to install it in a hosting account, a tool known as ionCube Loader has to be present on your server. Without this, you won't be able to install the script or in case you somehow manage to do this, it will not function efficiently due to the fact that almost all of the script code will be encrypted to a point where it cannot be interpreted. In this light, you need to ensure that ionCube Loader is present when you get a new website hosting account and you wish to work with some paid web app. If you get a shared web hosting account and the instrument is not present, it cannot be added because the entire server PHP environment will have to be compiled again.
IonCube in Cloud Hosting
When you get a Linux cloud hosting
through us, it'll be created on our tailor-made cloud hosting platform where ionCube Loader is already present, so you will not have any problems to run any script application that needs the tool to function appropriately. Furthermore, we offer a few different releases of PHP, therefore in case you switch the version, you'll have to activate ionCube again. Our system remembers the adjustments you make, which means that in case you move back to the earlier version of PHP which was active for your account, ionCube Loader will already be activated. Both the PHP version and the ionCube instrument can be operated through the PHP Configuration section of our Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. Any adjustment that you do takes literally just a click and it will take effect right away.
IonCube in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Due to the fact that all of the 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 requires the software tool to work efficiently. With just a few clicks in your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel you'll be able to activate or deactivate ionCube for the PHP version that is currently active for your account. As we support a couple of versions of PHP simultaneously, you will have to do that each and every time you move to a new release, but when you revert back to a release which you have already used, our system will remember your choice and ionCube Loader will already be activated. If you have multiple websites in the same account and they require different releases of PHP, you'll be able to create a php.ini file in every single domain folder and with a couple of lines of program code you're able to define both the PHP version as well as the status of ionCube no matter what is selected for the web hosting account altogether.
