A lot of script-driven applications, especially paid cms, encrypt their files in order to ensure that they will not be reverse engineered or tampered with. The majority of them use an application named ionCube PHP Encoder to do this, so if you acquire a paid script and you would like to set it up in a hosting account, a software tool called ionCube Loader must be present on your server. Without it, you will not be able to install the script or if you somehow find a way to do this, it won't function efficiently as almost all of the script code will be encoded to a degree where it can't be interpreted. That's why, you should ensure that ionCube Loader is set up if you get a fresh website hosting account and you would like to use some paid web app. If you buy a shared website hosting account and the instrument is not present, it can't be added because your entire server PHP environment will have to be compiled again.

IonCube in Shared Hosting

When you obtain a shared hosting package from us, it will be created on our custom-built cloud hosting platform where ionCube Loader is already installed, so you won't have any kind of problems to run any script app which requires the tool so as to function appropriately. We also offer several different releases of PHP, which means that in case you switch the version, you will have to enable ionCube again. Our platform remembers the changes you make, which means that if you switch back to the earlier version of PHP that was active for your account, ionCube Loader will already be turned on. Both the PHP version as well as the ionCube tool can be operated through the PHP Configuration part of our Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. Any change that you do takes literally just a mouse-click and it'll take effect right away.

IonCube in Semi-dedicated Hosting

IonCube Loader is available with all the Linux semi-dedicated hosting that we offer, so you won't have any kind of problems in case you'd like to set up and work with a script app which requires the software tool in order to function appropriately. Activating it is as easy as clicking a button inside the Advanced section of the Hepsia Control Panel that comes with all the semi-dedicated accounts and the change shall take effect in less than a minute, which means that you'll be able to move forward with the application set up without delay. As we employ an avant-garde in-house built platform and we support a number of versions of PHP at the same time, you'll need to activate ionCube every time you move to a version that you haven't used before. Additionally, you have the option to enable ionCube loader or even to set a PHP version different from the one in the account as a whole by making a php.ini file in an individual domain or subdomain folder and adding a couple of lines of program code within it.
