What is IonCube? How exactly does IonCube work and do you need it for your PHP software?
Lots of script-driven applications, particularly paid cms, encode their files to ensure that they won't be reverse engineered or tampered with. The majority of them use an application known as ionCube PHP Encoder to do this, so, in case you buy a paid script and you'd like to set it up in a website hosting account, a software instrument called ionCube Loader has to be present on your server. Without it, you will not be able to install the script or if you somehow find a way to do that, it will not work appropriately for the reason that almost all of the script code will be encoded to a point where it can't be interpreted. That is why, you need to make sure that ionCube Loader is installed if you get a new website hosting account and you'd like to take advantage of some paid web app. If you buy a shared hosting account and the instrument is not present, it can't be added as your entire server PHP environment shall have to be compiled again.
IonCube in Cloud Website Hosting
When you aquire a cloud website hosting plan
through our company, it will be created on our custom-built cloud platform where ionCube Loader is already installed, so you won't have any problems to run any script application which needs the instrument in order to run properly. Furthermore, we offer you several different releases of PHP, therefore in case you change the version, you'll have to activate ionCube once again. Our system remembers the changes you make, so in case you move 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 instrument can be operated from the PHP Configuration part of our Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. Any adjustment that you do takes literally just a single click and it will take effect immediately.
IonCube in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you aquire a semi-dedicated server
plan from us, you can take advantage of any script-driven app which needs ionCube Loader since the software tool comes with all the servers that are part of our revolutionary cloud web hosting platform. In addition, we support multiple releases of PHP, which means that if you switch from PHP 4 to 5.2 or 5.3, for instance, you can activate ionCube for this particular version with only a click in your Hepsia Control Panel. Our system will remember your decision, so in case you switch back to the earlier version of PHP, the instrument will already be active. For more experienced users, we also provide the option to select the PHP version and if ionCube will be active or not for a specific domain name without altering the settings for the entire hosting account. This is done by putting a php.ini file inside a domain folder with several lines of program code.
