Lots of script-driven apps, especially paid cms, encrypt their files so as to ensure that they won't be reverse engineered or tampered with. The majority of them use an application called ionCube PHP Encoder to do this, so, in case you buy a paid script and you wish to set it up in a web hosting account, an instrument called ionCube Loader must be present on your server. Without this, you will not be able to install the script or if you somehow manage to do this, it won't function efficiently as almost all of the script code will be encoded to a degree where it cannot be interpreted. That's why, you should make sure that ionCube Loader is present if you get a new web hosting account and you wish to use some paid web application. If you acquire a shared website hosting account and the instrument is not present, it can't be added since the entire server PHP environment shall have to be compiled again.

IonCube in Cloud Hosting

IonCube Loader is present on all the web servers which are part of our cloud hosting platform, so whatever the cloud hosting that you select during the signup process, you will be able to activate it through the Hepsia Control Panel. The process is as simple as clicking an On/Off button from the Advanced section, so even if this will be your first web hosting account ever, you won't need to do anything complicated. The same section allows you to pick the PHP release for your account (4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4, 5.5), which means that if you want to switch to some other version, you only need to activate ionCube Loader for it too. Due to the fact that our platform is flexible, you can even set some other PHP version and a different status of ionCube using a php.ini file in each domain folder. In case this is something you'd like to do but you do not have much experience, our 24/7 tech support team shall help you very quickly.

IonCube in Semi-dedicated Servers

Each semi-dedicated server account which is set up on our modern cloud hosting platform features ionCube Loader support, so you will be able to install any kind of script application that needs the software tool. Then use it in order to launch and maintain your world wide web presence. You can enable ionCube through the PHP Configuration area of your Control Panel and it'll take you no more than a few clicks to do this. Your change will take effect right away, which means that you are able to go ahead and install the necessary script inside your account. If you decide to change the PHP version that's active for your account, you need to activate ionCube for the new release too. Our custom-built 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 each domain folder. In the same way, you can enable/disable ionCube Loader for each site hosted in your semi-dedicated account.
