Lots of script-driven apps, particularly paid content management systems, encode their files so as to ensure that they will not be reverse engineered or tampered with. Many of them use an app named ionCube PHP Encoder to do that, so if you get a paid script and you'd like to set it up in a website hosting account, a software instrument called ionCube Loader needs to be present on your server. Without it, you will not be able to install the script or in case you somehow find a way to do this, it won't work efficiently due to the fact that most of the script code will be encrypted to a degree where it can't be interpreted. That's why, you need to make sure that ionCube Loader is set up when you get a fresh web hosting account and you want to take advantage of some paid web app. If you purchase a shared web hosting account and the tool is not present, it can't be added as the entire server PHP environment shall have to be compiled again.

IonCube in Shared Hosting

IonCube Loader is supplied with every single Linux shared hosting service that we supply and you'll be able to enable it anytime with just a few clicks, so you will be able to work with script applications that need it. You can do that through the PHP Configuration area of your Hepsia Control Panel and all it'll take to activate or disable ionCube is to click a button. The change takes effect within a minute, so you are able to proceed and set up the application that you need without delay. The exact same section will allow you to switch the PHP release which is active for your account, as we support several versions on our hi-tech cloud platform. In case you switch to a release that you haven't used so far, you will need to enable ionCube Loader again. Experienced users can use a php.ini file in a particular domain folder to set a PHP release different from the one for the whole account or enable/disable ionCube Loader.

IonCube in Semi-dedicated Servers

Each semi-dedicated server account which is created on our modern cloud web hosting platform features ionCube Loader support, so you will be able to install any script app that requires the software tool. Then use it in order to start and maintain your world wide web presence. You can activate ionCube from the PHP Configuration section of the Control Panel and it'll take you only a few clicks to do that. Your change will take effect right away, which means that you'll be able to go ahead and install the necessary script in your account. If you decide to change the PHP version that is active for the account, you will need to enable ionCube for the new release too. Our custom-made platform also allows you to have a different PHP version 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 individual website hosted in your semi-dedicated account.
