A lot of script-driven apps, especially paid content management systems, encode their files in order to ensure that they won't be reverse engineered or tampered with. Many of them use an application known as ionCube PHP Encoder to do that, so, in case you purchase a paid script and you want to set it up in a website hosting account, a software instrument known as ionCube Loader has to be present on the server. Without it, you will not be able to install the script or in case you somehow find a way to do this, it won't function efficiently since almost all of the script code will be encoded to a point where it cannot be interpreted. That is why, you need to make sure that ionCube Loader is installed when you get a fresh website hosting account and you want to employ some paid web application. If you obtain a shared web hosting account and the tool is not present, it cannot be added since the whole server PHP environment will have to be compiled again.

IonCube in Cloud Web Hosting

IonCube Loader is installed on all of the web servers which are a part of our cloud website hosting platform, so irrespective of the Linux cloud web hosting service that you choose during the signup process, you'll be able to enable it through your Hepsia Control Panel. The process is as simple as right-clicking an On/Off button inside the Advanced section, so even if this is your first web hosting account ever, you will not need to do anything complicated. The exact same section allows you to pick the PHP release for your account (4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4, 5.5, 5.6, 7.0, 7.1, 7.2, 7.3, 7.4, 8.0, 8.1, 8.2), and if you would like to move to some other version, you just have to activate ionCube Loader for it as well. Because our platform is quite flexible, you can even set a different PHP version and another status of ionCube using a php.ini file in every domain folder. In case this is something you would like to do but you do not have much experience, the 24/7 tech support team shall assist you in no time.

IonCube in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Each and every semi-dedicated server account that's generated on our outstanding cloud hosting platform comes with ionCube Loader support, which means that you can set up any script app that needs the software tool. Then employ it in order to launch and maintain your world wide web presence. You can activate ionCube from the PHP Configuration section of your Control Panel and it will take you no more than a couple of clicks to do this. The change will take effect immediately, which means that you're able to proceed and install the needed script inside your account. If you decide to switch the PHP version that is active for your account, you will have to enable ionCube for the new version too. Our in-house built platform also allows you to have a different PHP version for each domain or subdomain, which is done with a php.ini file in every domain folder. In the same way, you can enable/disable ionCube Loader for each site hosted in your semi-dedicated account.
