Lots of script-driven apps, particularly paid cms, encrypt their files so as to make sure that they will not be reverse engineered or tampered with. Most of them use an app known as ionCube PHP Encoder to do this, so, in case you acquire a paid script and you wish to set it up in a website hosting account, a tool known as ionCube Loader needs to be present on your server. Without it, you won't be able to install the script or in case you somehow find a way to do that, it won't operate appropriately due to the fact that almost all of the script code will be encoded to a point where it cannot be interpreted. That's why, you should ensure that ionCube Loader is present when you get a fresh hosting account and you want to take advantage of some paid web application. If you get a shared website hosting account and the instrument is not present, it can't be added because your entire server PHP environment shall have to be compiled again.

IonCube in Cloud Hosting

IonCube Loader is installed on all the web servers that are a part of our cloud website hosting platform, which means that irrespective of the Linux cloud package that you choose during the signup process, you can activate it from the Hepsia Control Panel. The process is as easy as clicking an On/Off button from the Advanced section, so even if this is your first web hosting account ever, you won't need to do anything complex. The same section allows you to pick 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), which means that in case you decide to switch to another version, you only need to activate ionCube Loader for it too. As our platform is quite flexible, you can even set a different PHP version and a different status of ionCube using a php.ini file in every domain folder. In case this is something you want to do but you do not have much experience, the 24/7 tech support team will assist you in no time.

IonCube in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you get a semi-dedicated server package from our company, you will be able to take advantage of any script-driven app which requires ionCube Loader for the reason that the software tool comes with all servers which are a part of our innovative cloud web hosting platform. We also support several versions of PHP, and 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 example, you can activate ionCube for this particular version with just a click from your Hepsia Control Panel. Our system will remember your choice, so in case you switch back to the earlier version of PHP, the software tool will already be active. For more tech-savvy users, we also provide the option to select the PHP version and whether ionCube will be active or not for a particular domain name without altering the settings for the whole web hosting account. This is done by placing a php.ini file in a domain folder with several lines of program code.
