What precisely is IonCube? Why is it present on almost any present-day server running PHP?
Plenty of script-driven applications, particularly paid content management systems, encode their files in order to make sure that they will not be reverse engineered or tampered with. Many of them use an application called ionCube PHP Encoder to do this, so if you get a paid script and you wish to install it in a hosting account, an instrument called ionCube Loader needs to be present on your server. Without it, you cannot install the script or in case you somehow find a way to do this, it will not work properly because almost all of the script code will be encrypted to a point where it cannot be interpreted. That is why, you need to make sure that ionCube Loader is set up when you get a new website hosting account and you wish to use some paid web application. If you purchase a shared web hosting account and the tool is not present, it can't be added since the whole server PHP environment shall have to be compiled again.
IonCube in Website Hosting
If you purchase a Linux website hosting
through our company, it will be created on our in-house built cloud platform where ionCube Loader is already installed, so you will not have any problems to manage any script application which needs the instrument to function properly. In addition, we provide a few different releases of PHP, therefore in case you change the version, you'll have to enable ionCube again. Our system remembers the adjustments you make, which means that if you switch back to the previous release of PHP which was active for your account, ionCube Loader will already be enabled. Both the PHP version and the ionCube tool can be operated from the PHP Configuration part of our Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. Every adjustment that you do takes literally just a mouse-click and it will take effect without delay.
IonCube in Semi-dedicated Servers
Each semi-dedicated server
account that's set up on our modern cloud hosting platform has ionCube Loader support, which means that you can set up any kind of script application that needs the tool. Then employ it in order to launch and maintain your world wide web presence. You can enable ionCube from the PHP Configuration area of your Control Panel and it'll take you just a couple of clicks to do this. The change will take effect instantly, which means that you'll be able to go ahead and set up the needed script inside your account. If you choose to change the PHP version which is active for the account, you'll have to enable 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, which is done with a php.ini file in each domain folder. In the same way, you're able to enable/disable ionCube Loader for each website hosted in your semi-dedicated account.
