Plenty of script-driven apps, particularly paid content management systems, encode their files in order 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 when you purchase a paid script and you intend to set it up in a website hosting account, an instrument known as ionCube Loader has to be present on the server. Without this, you won't be able to install the script or in case you somehow find a way to do that, it will not work efficiently because almost all of the script code will be encoded to a point where it can't be interpreted. In this light, you have to ensure that ionCube Loader is set up when you get a fresh hosting account and you want to work with some paid web application. If you get a shared hosting account and the instrument is not present, it cannot be added because the entire server PHP environment shall have to be compiled again.

IonCube in Shared Hosting

IonCube Loader is present on all the web servers that are part of our cloud web hosting platform, which means that regardless of the shared plan that you pick during the signup process, you will be able to enable it from your Hepsia Control Panel. This process is as easy as right-clicking an On/Off button from the Advanced section, so even if this will be your first hosting account ever, you won't have to do anything complicated. The same section enables you to choose 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 switch to some other version, you just need to activate ionCube Loader for it too. Due to the fact that our platform is rather flexible, you may even set some other PHP version and a different status of ionCube by using a php.ini file in every domain folder. If this is something you want to do but you do not have much experience, our 24/7 technical support team shall assist you very quickly.

IonCube in Semi-dedicated Servers

Each and every semi-dedicated server account that is set up on our modern cloud website hosting platform comes with ionCube Loader support, which means that you will be able to install any script app which needs the software tool. Then employ it in order to start and maintain your web presence. You can activate ionCube through the PHP Configuration section of the Control Panel and it'll take you just a few clicks to do this. Your change will take effect immediately, so you are able to go ahead and install the needed script inside your account. If you decide to change the PHP version that is active for the account, you'll have to enable ionCube for the new version as well. Our tailor-made platform also allows you to have a different PHP release for each and every domain or subdomain, that is done with a php.ini file in each domain folder. In the same way, you can enable/disable ionCube Loader for each website hosted in your semi-dedicated account.
