Plenty of script-driven apps, especially paid content management systems, encrypt their files in order to ensure that they won't be reverse engineered or tampered with. Many of them use an application named ionCube PHP Encoder to do that, so, in case you buy a paid script and you intend to set it up in a website hosting account, a software instrument known as ionCube Loader has to be present on the server. Without this, you won't be able to install the script or in case you somehow manage to do this, it won't operate appropriately as almost all of the script code will be encoded to a point where it cannot be interpreted. In this light, you should ensure that ionCube Loader is installed if you get a fresh hosting account and you'd like to use some paid web application. If you obtain a shared web hosting account and the tool is not present, it cannot be added as the entire server PHP environment will have to be compiled again.

IonCube in Website Hosting

IonCube Loader is present on all the web servers that are part of our cloud hosting platform, so whatever the website hosting that you get during the signup process, you can enable it through your Hepsia Control Panel. The process is as easy as right-clicking an On/Off button from the Advanced section, so even if this is your first hosting account ever, you won't have to do anything complex. The same section allows 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), and if you want to move to some other version, you only need to activate ionCube Loader for it as well. Since our platform is very flexible, you may even set a different PHP version and a different status of ionCube by using a php.ini file in every domain folder. If this is something you wish to do but you don't have much experience, the 24/7 tech support team will be able to assist you within minutes.

IonCube in Semi-dedicated Servers

IonCube Loader is provided with all the Linux semi-dedicated servers that we supply, and you won't experience any problems if you would like to set up and use some script application that requires the software instrument to operate properly. Activating it is as simple as clicking a single button inside the Advanced area of the Hepsia Control Panel that comes with all of the semi-dedicated accounts and the change will take effect in a minute, which means that you can move forward with the app set up without delay. Because we use an avant-garde custom platform and we support a number of versions of PHP simultaneously, you'll have to enable ionCube every time you move to a version that you have not used before. You will also have the option to enable ionCube loader and even to set a PHP version different from the one in the account as a whole by making a php.ini file in a separate domain or subdomain folder and adding a few lines of program code in it.
