A lot of script-driven applications, especially paid content management systems, encode their files in order to ensure that they won't be reverse engineered or tampered with. Most of them use an application named ionCube PHP Encoder to do that, so if you buy a paid script and you'd like to install it in a hosting account, a tool known as ionCube Loader needs to be present on the server. Without it, you will not be able to install the script or if you somehow manage to do that, it won't function efficiently for the reason that most of the script code will be encoded to a point where it can't be interpreted. That's why, you should make sure that ionCube Loader is present if you get a fresh hosting account and you want to take advantage of some paid web app. If you buy a shared web hosting account and the tool is not present, it can't be added since the whole server PHP environment shall have to be compiled again.

IonCube in Website Hosting

IonCube Loader is available on all web servers that are part of our cloud website hosting platform, therefore irrespective of the Linux website hosting that you choose during the signup process, you can enable it from your Hepsia Control Panel. The process is as easy as clicking an On/Off button inside the Advanced section, so even if this is your first website hosting account ever, you won't need to do anything complex. The exact same section will allow you to choose the PHP version for your account (4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4, 5.5), so in case you would like to move to a different version, you only need to activate ionCube Loader for it too. Because our platform is flexible, you can even set some other PHP version and another status of ionCube by employing a php.ini file in every domain folder. If this is something you want to do but you don't have much experience, our 24/7 support team shall help you within minutes.

IonCube in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Each semi-dedicated server account which is generated on our modern cloud hosting platform has ionCube Loader support, so you can install any script application which needs the tool. Then use it to start and maintain your world wide web presence. You can activate ionCube from the PHP Configuration area of the Control Panel and it'll take you only a few clicks to do this. The change takes effect without delay, so you're able to go ahead and set up the necessary script in your account. If you decide to change the PHP version that's active for your account, you'll have to activate ionCube for the new release too. Our in-house built platform also allows you to have a different PHP release for each and every domain or subdomain, which is done with a php.ini file in each domain folder. In the same way, you're able to enable/disable ionCube Loader for each site hosted in your semi-dedicated account.
