Lots of script-driven apps, especially paid cms, encode their files to ensure that they won't be reverse engineered or tampered with. Many of them use an app called ionCube PHP Encoder to do this, so, in case you buy a paid script and you'd like to install it in a web hosting account, a software tool called ionCube Loader has to be present on your server. Without it, you cannot install the script or in case you somehow manage to do that, it will not operate appropriately as most of the script code will be encrypted to a point where it cannot be interpreted. That is why, you should ensure that ionCube Loader is installed if you get a fresh website hosting account and you'd like to work with some paid web app. If you get a shared web hosting account and the tool is not present, it cannot be added since your entire server PHP environment will have to be compiled again.

IonCube in Hosting

IonCube Loader is provided with all of the hosting packages which we provide, so when you need it to install and execute some script app that needs it, you can activate it with a click inside the Advanced area of your Hepsia Control Panel. Due to the fact that you'll be able to switch the PHP version that's active for your account in the same section, you will have to enable the tool for any new version which you set. When you're more skillful, you'll be able to take advantage of a php.ini file in a domain or subdomain folder and set the PHP version as well as the status of ionCube Loader for that particular website only, without affecting the whole account. In this way you'll be able to run both new and older script applications for multiple websites inside the same account - a thing that you will not be able to do with numerous other hosting service providers out there.

IonCube in Semi-dedicated Hosting

In case you aquire a semi-dedicated server plan from our company, you can employ any script-driven app which requires ionCube Loader for the reason that the tool is installed on all of the servers that are part of our innovative cloud website hosting platform. In addition, we support multiple releases of PHP, which means that if you move from PHP 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, for instance, you can enable ionCube for this particular version with only a click in your Hepsia Control Panel. Our system will remember your choice, so if you move back to the previous version of PHP, the instrument will already be active. For more tech-savvy users, we also offer the option to pick the PHP version and whether ionCube will be active or not for a specific domain name without altering the settings for the whole website hosting account. This can be done by placing a php.ini file within a domain folder with a couple of lines of code.
