Plenty of script-driven applications, especially paid content management systems, encode their files in order to make sure that they will not be reverse engineered or tampered with. The majority of them use an application named ionCube PHP Encoder to do that, so when you acquire a paid script and you would like to set it up in a website hosting account, a tool known as ionCube Loader has to be present on the server. Without it, you cannot install the script or if you somehow manage to do that, it won't work efficiently because most of the script code will be encrypted to a degree where it cannot be interpreted. In this light, you should make sure that ionCube Loader is present when you get a fresh website hosting account and you want to use some paid web app. If you purchase a shared hosting account and the instrument is not present, it can't be added because the whole server PHP environment will have to be compiled again.

IonCube in Cloud Hosting

IonCube Loader is present on all the web servers which are a part of our cloud website hosting platform, so irrespective of the Linux cloud hosting that you select during the signup process, you will be able to enable it through your Hepsia Control Panel. This process is as easy as clicking an On/Off button in the Advanced section, so even if this is your first web hosting account ever, you won't need to do anything complex. The very same section enables you to choose the PHP version for your account (4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4, 5.5), so if you choose to switch to a different version, you only need to activate ionCube Loader for it too. Due to the fact that our platform is flexible, you can even set some other PHP version and a different status of ionCube using a php.ini file in every domain folder. In case this is something you want to do but you don't have much experience, our 24/7 technical support team shall assist you very quickly.

IonCube in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Every single semi-dedicated server account that is generated on our cutting-edge cloud web hosting platform has ionCube Loader support, and you will be able to set up any kind of script app which needs the tool. Then employ it to start and maintain your internet presence. You can activate ionCube through the PHP Configuration section of your Control Panel and it'll take you just a few clicks to do this. Your change will take effect immediately, which means that you will be able to proceed and install the necessary script in your account. If you choose to change the PHP version which is active for your account, you need to activate ionCube for the new version as well. Our in-house built 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 are able to enable/disable ionCube Loader for each individual website hosted in your semi-dedicated account.
