Lots of script-driven apps, especially paid content management systems, encrypt their files 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 this, so if you obtain a paid script and you wish to set it up in a website hosting account, a software instrument called ionCube Loader must be present on the server. Without this, you won't be able to install the script or in case you somehow manage to do that, it won't operate appropriately as most of the script code will be encrypted to a point where it cannot be interpreted. In this light, you have to ensure that ionCube Loader is set up if you get a fresh hosting account and you would like to employ some paid web app. If you get a shared website hosting account and the tool is not present, it can't be added since the entire server PHP environment will have to be compiled again.

IonCube in Shared Web Hosting

IonCube Loader is supplied with each shared web hosting that we offer and you will be able to activate it anytime with just a couple of clicks, so you can employ script applications which require it. You're able to do this through the PHP Configuration area of your Hepsia Control Panel and all it takes to activate or disable ionCube is to click a button. The change will take effect in a minute, therefore you will be able to go ahead and install the application that you need without delay. The exact same section allows you to switch the PHP version that's active for your account, because we support a number of versions on our leading-edge cloud hosting platform. In case you switch to a release that you haven't used to date, you'll have to activate ionCube Loader again. More advanced users will be able to use a php.ini file in a specific domain folder so as to set a PHP version different from the one for the whole account or enable/disable ionCube Loader.

IonCube in Semi-dedicated Servers

Every single semi-dedicated server account that is generated on our outstanding cloud web hosting platform comes with ionCube Loader support, and you will be able to install any script app that requires the tool. Then employ it in order to launch and maintain your internet presence. You can enable ionCube through the PHP Configuration section of your Control Panel and it will take you no more than a few clicks to do this. Your change takes effect instantly, which means that you will be able to go ahead and set up the needed script inside your account. If you decide to change the PHP version which is active for the account, you should enable ionCube for the new version too. Our custom platform also allows you to have a different PHP release for each domain or subdomain, which is done with a php.ini file in every domain folder. In the same way, you will be able to enable/disable ionCube Loader for each individual website hosted in your semi-dedicated account.
