Plenty of script-driven apps, 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 application called ionCube PHP Encoder to do this, so if you purchase a paid script and you would like to install it in a hosting account, a software instrument known as ionCube Loader must be present on the server. Without having it, you can't install the script or if you somehow manage to do that, it will not work properly for the reason that most of the script code will be encrypted to a degree where it cannot be interpreted. That's why, you need to make sure that ionCube Loader is installed when you get a fresh web hosting account and you'd like to use some paid web application. If you acquire a shared website hosting account and the tool is not present, it can't be added since the whole server PHP environment will have to be compiled again.

IonCube in Web Hosting

IonCube Loader is supplied with each Linux web hosting that we supply and you are able to activate it at any time with just a couple of clicks, so you'll be able to use script apps which need it. You can do this from the PHP Configuration section of the Hepsia Control Panel and all it takes to enable or disable ionCube is to click a button. The change takes effect within a minute, therefore you're able to proceed and install the application that you'd like without delay. The very same section will allow you to switch the PHP release which is active for your account, because we support a number of releases on our advanced cloud hosting platform. In case you switch to a release that you haven't used so far, you'll have to enable ionCube Loader again. More advanced users will be able to use a php.ini file in a specific domain folder to set a PHP version 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's set up on our outstanding cloud website hosting platform features ionCube Loader support, and you'll be able to install any script app that needs the tool. Then employ it in order to start and maintain your web presence. You can enable ionCube through the PHP Configuration section of the Control Panel and it'll take you just a few clicks to do this. The change takes effect without delay, so you can proceed and set up the needed script inside your account. If you'd like to change the PHP version that's active for your account, you will need 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 each domain folder. In the same way, you're able to enable/disable ionCube Loader for each website hosted in your semi-dedicated account.
