Plenty of script-driven applications, especially paid content management systems, encrypt their files to ensure that they will not be reverse engineered or tampered with. Many of them use an app named ionCube PHP Encoder to do that, so if you acquire a paid script and you wish to install it in a hosting account, a tool called ionCube Loader has to be present on the server. Without it, you cannot install the script or in case you somehow manage to do that, it won't function appropriately as almost all of the script code will be encoded to a point where it can't be interpreted. In this light, you need to make sure that ionCube Loader is installed if you get a new hosting account and you'd like to employ some paid web application. If you buy a shared hosting account and the instrument is not present, it can't be added as the whole server PHP environment shall have to be compiled again.

IonCube in Cloud Website Hosting

IonCube Loader is supplied with each and every Linux cloud website hosting package that we offer and you're able to enable it anytime with only a couple of clicks, so you can take advantage of script apps which require it. You'll be able to do this from the PHP Configuration area of your Hepsia Control Panel and all it will take to activate or disable ionCube is to click a single button. The change will take effect within a minute, therefore you will be able to go ahead and set up the application that you'd like right away. The same section will allow you to switch the PHP version that is active for your account, as we support multiple releases on our cutting-edge cloud hosting platform. If you switch to a version that you haven't used to date, you will need 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 release different from the one for the entire account or enable/disable ionCube Loader.

IonCube in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Each semi-dedicated server account which is created on our modern cloud hosting platform comes with ionCube Loader support, and you can set up any kind of script app that requires the tool. Then use it to launch and maintain your online presence. You can activate ionCube through the PHP Configuration section of your Control Panel and it will take you just a few clicks to do that. Your change will take effect without delay, so you'll be able to go ahead and install the necessary script in your account. If you choose to switch the PHP version which is active for the account, you'll need to enable ionCube for the new release too. Our custom platform also allows you to have a different PHP release for each 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 individual website hosted in your semi-dedicated account.
