A lot of script-driven applications, particularly 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 app called 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, an instrument known as ionCube Loader needs to be present on your server. Without this, you cannot install the script or if you somehow find a way to do this, it won't function properly as most of the script code will be encoded to a degree where it can't be interpreted. In this light, you should make sure that ionCube Loader is set up when you get a new web hosting account and you'd like to work with some paid web app. If you acquire a shared hosting account and the instrument is not present, it cannot be added since your entire server PHP environment shall have to be compiled again.

IonCube in Shared Web Hosting

IonCube Loader is provided with all shared web hosting plans that we provide, so any time you need it in order to set up and execute some script application that requires it, you can activate it with a click from the Advanced section of the Hepsia Control Panel. Since you are able to switch the PHP version which is active for your account in the same section, you'll need to activate the tool for any new version which you set. If you are more experienced, you will be able to take advantage of a php.ini file in a domain or subdomain folder and set both the PHP version and the status of ionCube Loader for that particular website only, without affecting the entire account. Thus you will be able to manage both new and older script applications for multiple websites in the same account - a thing that you cannot do with numerous other web hosting providers on the market.

IonCube in Semi-dedicated Servers

Each semi-dedicated server account that's created on our modern cloud web hosting platform comes with ionCube Loader support, and you can install any script application which requires the tool. Then use it in order to start and maintain your world wide web presence. You can enable ionCube from the PHP Configuration section of your Control Panel and it will take you just a few clicks to do that. The change will take effect immediately, which means that you can go ahead and set up the necessary script in your account. If you decide to change the PHP version which is active for your account, you need to activate ionCube for the new version as well. Our in-house built 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 can enable/disable ionCube Loader for each individual website hosted in your semi-dedicated account.
