Lots of script-driven apps, particularly paid content management systems, encode their files so as to make sure that they will not be reverse engineered or tampered with. Most of them use an application named ionCube PHP Encoder to do that, so if you purchase a paid script and you want to install it in a website hosting account, a tool known as ionCube Loader needs to be present on your server. Without having it, you cannot install the script or in case you somehow manage to do that, it will not function appropriately for the reason that almost all of the script code will be encoded to a point where it cannot be interpreted. That's why, you need to ensure that ionCube Loader is present if you get a fresh website hosting account and you wish to take advantage of some paid web app. If you get a shared web hosting account and the tool is not present, it cannot be added as the entire server PHP environment will have to be compiled again.

IonCube in Cloud Hosting

If you purchase a cloud hosting plan from us, it will be set up on our custom-built cloud platform where ionCube Loader is already present, so you won't have any problems to manage any script app that needs the tool in order to run appropriately. We also supply a few different releases of PHP, so if you switch the version, you will need to enable ionCube again. Our platform remembers the changes you make, and when you move back to the earlier version of PHP which was active for your account, ionCube Loader will already be turned on. The PHP version as well as the ionCube tool can be operated through the PHP Configuration area of our Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. Every change that you make takes literally just a single click and it takes effect instantly.

IonCube in Semi-dedicated Servers

Each and every semi-dedicated server account that is created on our modern cloud hosting platform comes with ionCube Loader support, so you can set up any kind of script application that requires the tool. Then employ it in order 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 only a couple of clicks to do that. The change will take effect right away, so you'll be able to go ahead and set up the needed script inside your account. If you'd like to change the PHP version which is active for the account, you should activate ionCube for the new release as well. Our custom-made platform also allows you to have a different PHP release for each and every 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 site hosted in your semi-dedicated account.
