A lot of script-driven applications, especially paid cms, encrypt their files so as to ensure that they will not be reverse engineered or tampered with. The majority of them use an app called ionCube PHP Encoder to do that, so, in case you get a paid script and you want to install it in a website hosting account, a tool called ionCube Loader needs to be present on your server. Without it, you cannot install the script or in case you somehow find a way to do that, it will not operate properly as most of the script code will be encrypted to a degree where it cannot be interpreted. That is why, you should ensure that ionCube Loader is present when you get a new website hosting account and you'd like to use some paid web app. If you acquire a shared hosting account and the tool is not present, it cannot be added because your entire server PHP environment will have to be compiled again.

IonCube in Shared Website Hosting

If you get a shared website hosting plan through us, it will be set up on our in-house built cloud hosting platform where ionCube Loader is already installed, so you won't have any kind of problems to manage any script app that requires the tool to function properly. Furthermore, we supply several different releases of PHP, which means that if you switch the version, you will need to activate ionCube again. Our platform remembers the changes you make, so in case you switch back to the previous release of PHP which was active for your account, ionCube Loader will already be enabled. Both the PHP version as well as the ionCube instrument can be operated through the PHP Configuration section of our Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. Each change that you do takes literally just a single click and it takes effect without delay.

IonCube in Semi-dedicated Servers

Every single semi-dedicated server account that is set up on our modern cloud website hosting platform includes ionCube Loader support, and you can set up any kind of script app that needs the software tool. Then employ it in order to start and maintain your internet presence. You can enable ionCube through the PHP Configuration section of the Control Panel and it'll take you only a couple of clicks to do this. Your change will take effect without delay, so you will be able to go ahead and set up the necessary script in your account. If you decide to change the PHP version that's active for your account, you will have to enable ionCube for the new version as well. 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 every domain folder. In the same way, you're able to enable/disable ionCube Loader for each individual website hosted in your semi-dedicated account.
