Plenty of script-driven apps, especially paid cms, encrypt their files to ensure that they won't be reverse engineered or tampered with. Many of them use an app named ionCube PHP Encoder to do this, so, in case you acquire a paid script and you intend to install it in a website hosting account, a software tool known as ionCube Loader must be present on the server. Without this, you can't install the script or in case you somehow find a way to do this, it won't work appropriately for the reason that most of the script code will be encrypted to a point where it cannot be interpreted. That is why, you should ensure that ionCube Loader is present when you get a fresh web hosting account and you wish to employ some paid web app. If you buy a shared website hosting account and the tool is not present, it can't be added as the entire server PHP environment shall have to be compiled again.

IonCube in Web Hosting

IonCube Loader is supplied with each Linux web hosting that we supply and you're able to activate it at any time with only a couple of clicks, so you can use script applications that require it. You will be able to do this from the PHP Configuration section of the Hepsia Control Panel and all it takes to enable or deactivate ionCube is to click a button. The change will take effect within a minute, so you're able to proceed and install the application that you need without delay. The same section allows you to switch the PHP version which is active for your account, because we support a variety of versions on our cutting-edge cloud hosting platform. If you move to a version that you have never used so far, you will have to enable ionCube Loader once again. Experienced users will be able to use a php.ini file in a specific domain folder to set a PHP version different from the one for the whole account or enable/disable ionCube Loader.

IonCube in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Each semi-dedicated server account which is created on our cutting-edge cloud web hosting platform includes ionCube Loader support, so you will be able to install any kind of script application that requires the tool. Then employ it to launch and maintain your internet presence. You can enable ionCube from the PHP Configuration area of the Control Panel and it'll take you only a couple of clicks to do this. Your change will take effect without delay, which means that you'll be able to go ahead and set up the needed script in your account. If you'd like to change the PHP version that is active for the account, you'll have to enable ionCube for the new release too. Our custom-built platform also allows you to have a different PHP version 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.
