A lot of script-driven applications, especially paid content management systems, encode their files so as to make sure that they won't be reverse engineered or tampered with. The majority of them use an application named ionCube PHP Encoder to do that, so, in case you obtain a paid script and you wish to install it in a hosting account, a tool known as ionCube Loader needs to be present on your server. Without it, you can't install the script or if you somehow manage to do this, it won't work efficiently for the reason that most of the script code will be encrypted to a point where it can't be interpreted. That is why, you should ensure that ionCube Loader is present if you get a new hosting account and you want to work with some paid web application. If you acquire a shared website hosting account and the instrument is not present, it cannot be added as the whole server PHP environment will have to be compiled again.

IonCube in Shared Website Hosting

IonCube Loader is available with all the shared website hosting packages which we supply, so when you require it in order to set up and execute a script application that requires it, you can enable it with a click inside the Advanced section of your Hepsia Control Panel. Due to the fact that you'll be able to switch the PHP release which is active for your account in the same section, you will have to activate the tool for each new version which you set. When you're more skillful, you can employ a php.ini file in a domain or subdomain folder and set the PHP version and the status of ionCube Loader for that particular website only, without affecting the entire account. Thus you'll be able to manage both new and older script apps for multiple sites in the same account - something that you won't be able to do with various other website hosting providers out there.

IonCube in Semi-dedicated Servers

Every single semi-dedicated server account which is generated on our modern cloud web hosting platform features ionCube Loader support, which means that you'll be able to set up any kind of script app which needs the software tool. Then employ it to start and maintain your web presence. You can activate ionCube from the PHP Configuration section of your Control Panel and it'll take you only a few clicks to do that. Your change will take effect immediately, which means that you'll be able to go ahead and install the necessary script inside your account. If you choose to switch the PHP version that is active for your account, you will have to enable ionCube for the new release too. Our custom platform also allows you to have a different PHP version for each domain or subdomain, which is done with a php.ini file in every domain folder. In the same way, you can enable/disable ionCube Loader for each individual site hosted in your semi-dedicated account.
