A lot of script-driven applications, particularly paid cms, encode their files so as to make sure that they won't be reverse engineered or tampered with. Most of them use an app known as ionCube PHP Encoder to do that, so if you acquire a paid script and you'd like to install it in a hosting account, a software tool known as ionCube Loader must be present on your server. Without this, you won't be able to install the script or in case you somehow manage to do that, it will not work efficiently for the reason that most of the script code will be encoded to a point where it can't be interpreted. That is why, you have to 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 purchase a shared website hosting account and the instrument is not present, it cannot be added as the entire server PHP environment shall have to be compiled again.

IonCube in Cloud Website Hosting

IonCube Loader comes with all of the cloud website hosting plans that we offer, so any time you need it in order to install and run some script app that requires it, you can enable it with a single click inside the Advanced area of your Hepsia Control Panel. Due to the fact that you are able to change the PHP version which is active for your account from the same section, you will need to activate the instrument for every new version that you set. When you are more skillful, you're able to take advantage of a php.ini file in a domain or subdomain folder and set the PHP version and the status of ionCube Loader for that particular website only, without affecting the entire account. This way you are able to manage both new and older script apps for multiple sites in the same account - a thing that you will not be able to do with numerous other web hosting service providers available on the market.

IonCube in Semi-dedicated Servers

Each semi-dedicated server account that is set up on our outstanding cloud hosting platform includes ionCube Loader support, which means that you'll be able to set up any script app that needs the tool. Then use it to launch and maintain your web presence. You can activate ionCube from the PHP Configuration section of the Control Panel and it'll take you no more than a few clicks to do that. The change will take effect immediately, which means that you'll be able to proceed and set up the needed script in your account. If you would like change the PHP version that is active for your account, you should enable ionCube for the new version too. Our in-house built platform also allows you to have a different PHP release for each and every domain or subdomain, that is done with a php.ini file in every domain folder. In the same way, you will be able to enable/disable ionCube Loader for each individual site hosted in your semi-dedicated account.
