Plenty of script-driven applications, especially paid cms, encode their files so as to make sure that they won't be reverse engineered or tampered with. Most of them use an app named ionCube PHP Encoder to do that, so when you purchase a paid script and you want to install it in a hosting account, a tool known as ionCube Loader needs to be present on your server. Without having it, you can't install the script or in case you somehow manage to do this, it will not work properly since almost all of the script code will be encrypted to a point where it cannot be interpreted. In this light, you need to make sure that ionCube Loader is present when you get a fresh web hosting account and you'd like to use some paid web app. If you obtain a shared web hosting account and the tool is not present, it can't be added because your entire server PHP environment will have to be compiled again.

IonCube in Web Hosting

IonCube Loader is available on all the web servers that are a part of our cloud hosting platform, therefore regardless of the Linux web hosting that you pick during the signup process, you'll be able to activate it from your Hepsia Control Panel. This process is as easy as right-clicking an On/Off button inside the Advanced section, so even if this is your first hosting account ever, you will not need to do anything complex. The exact same section enables you to choose the PHP release for your account (4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4, 5.5, 5.6, 7.0, 7.1, 7.2, 7.3, 7.4, 8.0, 8.1, 8.2), which means that if you choose to move to a different version, you just need to activate ionCube Loader for it too. Due to the fact that our platform is rather flexible, you may even set another PHP version and another status of ionCube by using a php.ini file in every domain folder. If this is something you need to do but you don't have much experience, our 24/7 technical support team will be able to assist you quickly.

IonCube in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Every single semi-dedicated server account which is created on our modern cloud website hosting platform features ionCube Loader support, and you will be able to install any kind of script app which needs the software tool. Then use it to launch and maintain your internet presence. You can activate ionCube through the PHP Configuration section of the Control Panel and it'll take you only a few clicks to do that. Your change takes effect without delay, so you're able to proceed and install the needed script inside your account. If you would like switch the PHP version that is active for the account, you will have to activate ionCube for the new release too. Our in-house made platform also allows you to have a different PHP version for each 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 site hosted in your semi-dedicated account.
