A lot of script-driven apps, especially paid content management systems, encrypt their files in order to make sure that they will not be reverse engineered or tampered with. Many of them use an application named ionCube PHP Encoder to do that, so, in case you acquire a paid script and you want to set it up in a web hosting account, a software tool known as ionCube Loader needs to be present on your server. Without it, you will not be able to install the script or if you somehow manage to do this, it won't function effectively as most of the script code will be encoded to a degree where it cannot be interpreted. That's why, you should ensure that ionCube Loader is installed when you get a new hosting account and you want to use some paid web app. If you acquire a shared website hosting account and the tool is not present, it can't be added as the whole server PHP environment will have to be compiled again.

IonCube in Cloud Hosting

IonCube Loader is provided with all cloud hosting plans that we offer, so any time you require it in order to set up and run some script app which requires it, you can activate it with a single click inside the Advanced area of your Hepsia Control Panel. As you're able to change the PHP release that's active for your account from the same section, you'll need to activate the tool for any new version that you set. If you are more experienced, you are able to use a php.ini file in a domain or subdomain folder and set both the PHP version and the status of ionCube Loader for this particular site only, without affecting the entire account. Thus you're able to manage both new and older script apps for multiple sites within the same account - something that you cannot do with lots of other website hosting suppliers on the market.

IonCube in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Every single semi-dedicated server account that's created on our modern cloud hosting platform comes with ionCube Loader support, and you'll be able to install any script app which requires the tool. Then employ it in order to launch and maintain your web presence. You can activate ionCube from the PHP Configuration section of your Control Panel and it will take you just a couple of clicks to do this. Your change takes effect right away, which means that you can proceed and set up the needed script inside your account. If you would like switch the PHP version that's active for the account, you need to enable ionCube for the new release too. Our in-house built platform also allows you to have a different PHP version for each domain or subdomain, which is done with a php.ini file in each domain folder. In the same way, you will be able to enable/disable ionCube Loader for each individual website hosted in your semi-dedicated account.
