Lots of script-driven apps, particularly paid cms, encode their files so as to ensure that they will not be reverse engineered or tampered with. Most of them use an application called ionCube PHP Encoder to do this, so, in case you obtain a paid script and you want to set it up in a website hosting account, a software tool known as ionCube Loader needs to be present on your server. Without this, you will not be able to install the script or in case you somehow find a way to do this, it won't function properly since almost all of the script code will be encrypted to a degree where it can't be interpreted. That's why, you should make sure that ionCube Loader is set up if you get a fresh hosting account and you would like to use some paid web application. If you get a shared website hosting account and the instrument is not present, it can't be added since your entire server PHP environment will have to be compiled again.

IonCube in Website Hosting

IonCube Loader is present on all of the web servers which are part of our cloud web hosting platform, therefore whatever the Linux website hosting package that you select during the signup process, you will be able to activate it through your Hepsia Control Panel. This process is as simple as clicking an On/Off button in the Advanced section, so even if this is your first website hosting account ever, you will not need to do anything complex. The same section will allow 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), and if you choose to move to another version, you only need to activate ionCube Loader for it as well. As our platform is quite flexible, you can even set some other PHP version and a different status of ionCube by using a php.ini file in each domain folder. If this is something you need to do but you do not have much experience, the 24/7 support team will assist you in no time.

IonCube in Semi-dedicated Hosting

IonCube Loader is available with all Linux semi-dedicated packages that we supply, so you won't have any problems in case you would like to set up and work with a script application which requires the software tool in order to function appropriately. Activating it is as simple as clicking a button inside the Advanced part of the Hepsia Control Panel that comes with all the semi-dedicated accounts and the change will take effect in a minute, which means that you are able to proceed with the application set up without any delays. For the reason that we employ an innovative in-house made platform and we support several versions of PHP simultaneously, you will need to activate ionCube any time you switch to a version that you haven't used before. In addition, you'll have the option to enable ionCube loader or even to set a PHP release different from the one in the account as a whole by generating a php.ini file in an individual domain or subdomain folder and adding a couple of lines of code in it.
