A lot of script-driven apps, particularly paid content management systems, encode their files 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 that, so, in case you acquire a paid script and you'd like to set it up in a hosting account, a software tool known as ionCube Loader has to be present on the server. Without having it, you won't be able to install the script or if you somehow find a way to do this, it won't operate effectively since almost all of the script code will be encoded to a degree where it can't be interpreted. That is why, you should make sure that ionCube Loader is set up if you get a fresh website hosting account and you wish to take advantage of some paid web app. If you obtain a shared web hosting account and the tool is not present, it can't be added as the entire server PHP environment will have to be compiled again.

IonCube in Shared Hosting

IonCube Loader is supplied with each Linux shared hosting service that we supply and you can activate it at any time with just a couple of clicks, so you'll be able to work with script apps that need it. You will be able to do this from the PHP Configuration area of your Hepsia Control Panel and all it'll take to enable or deactivate ionCube is to click a button. The change takes effect within a minute, which means that you will be able to go ahead and set up the app that you would like without delay. The same section allows you to change the PHP release that's active for your account, because we support a number of releases on our state-of-the-art cloud platform. In case you switch to a release that you haven't used so far, you'll need to activate ionCube Loader once again. More advanced users will be able to use a php.ini file in a specific domain folder in order to set a PHP version different from the one for the entire account or enable/disable ionCube Loader.

IonCube in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Each and every semi-dedicated server account that is generated on our modern cloud website hosting platform comes with ionCube Loader support, and you will be able to set up any kind of script app which needs the tool. Then use it to launch and maintain your web presence. You can activate ionCube from the PHP Configuration section of the Control Panel and it will take you just a couple of clicks to do that. The change takes effect without delay, which means that you are able to go ahead and set up the necessary script in your account. If you decide to change the PHP version which is active for the account, you'll have to enable ionCube for the new release as well. Our custom 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 every domain folder. In the same way, you'll be able to enable/disable ionCube Loader for each website hosted in your semi-dedicated account.
