Lots of script-driven applications, particularly paid content management systems, encrypt their files so as to ensure that they won't be reverse engineered or tampered with. The majority of them use an app called ionCube PHP Encoder to do that, so, in case you buy a paid script and you would like to set it up in a web hosting account, a software instrument called ionCube Loader has to be present on your server. Without it, you will not be able to install the script or if you somehow manage to do that, it won't work efficiently due to the fact that almost all of the script code will be encrypted to a point where it can't be interpreted. That is why, you should make sure that ionCube Loader is present if you get a new website hosting account and you want to work with some paid web app. If you buy a shared website hosting account and the tool is not present, it cannot be added since your entire server PHP environment will have to be compiled again.

IonCube in Shared Web Hosting

IonCube Loader is supplied with each Linux shared web hosting that we supply and you'll be able to activate it at any time with only a few clicks, so you'll be able to use script apps that need it. You'll be able to do this from the PHP Configuration section of the Hepsia Control Panel and all it will take to enable or deactivate ionCube is to click a single button. The change will take effect in a minute, which means that you'll be able to proceed and set up the app that you'd like right away. The exact same section allows you to switch the PHP release which is active for your account, because we support several releases on our state-of-the-art cloud platform. In case you switch to a release that you've never used to date, you will have to activate ionCube Loader once again. Experienced users will be able to use a php.ini file in a particular domain folder so as to set a PHP release different from the one for the whole account or enable/disable ionCube Loader.

IonCube in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Every single semi-dedicated server account that is created on our cutting-edge cloud hosting platform features ionCube Loader support, which means that you can install any script app which needs the tool. Then employ it in order to start and maintain your internet presence. You can activate ionCube from the PHP Configuration area of the Control Panel and it will take you just a couple of clicks to do that. Your change will take effect immediately, which means that you will be able to go ahead and install the needed script inside your account. If you would like switch the PHP version that's active for your account, you'll need to enable ionCube for the new version too. Our custom-made platform also allows you to have a different PHP release for each and every domain or subdomain, that is done with a php.ini file in every domain folder. In the same way, you will be able to enable/disable ionCube Loader for each individual site hosted in your semi-dedicated account.
