Lots of script-driven apps, especially paid cms, encode their files in order to make sure that they will not be reverse engineered or tampered with. The majority of them use an app called ionCube PHP Encoder to do this, so when you get a paid script and you would like to install it in a 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 manage to do this, it won't work efficiently since most of the script code will be encoded to a point where it cannot be interpreted. In this light, you should ensure that ionCube Loader is set up when you get a fresh web hosting account and you would like to work with some paid web application. If you obtain a shared hosting account and the tool is not present, it can't be added as the whole server PHP environment shall have to be compiled again.

IonCube in Cloud Web Hosting

IonCube Loader is supplied with each and every cloud web hosting that we offer and you will be able to enable it anytime with only a couple of clicks, so you'll be able to work with script apps that need it. You're able to do this from the PHP Configuration section of your Hepsia Control Panel and all it will take to enable or disable ionCube is to click a button. The change will take effect in a minute, so you will be able to go ahead and install the application that you would like right away. The very same section will allow you to change the PHP release that is active for your account, as we support a number of versions on our cutting-edge cloud hosting platform. In case you move to a release that you have never used so far, you will have to activate ionCube Loader again. More advanced users will be able to use a php.ini file in a specific domain folder so as to set a PHP version different from the one for the whole account or enable/disable ionCube Loader.

IonCube in Semi-dedicated Hosting

In case you buy a semi-dedicated server plan from our company, you will be able to take advantage of any script-driven application which requires ionCube Loader for the reason that the tool is installed on all of the servers which are a part of our innovative cloud website hosting platform. In addition, we support multiple versions of PHP, therefore if you switch 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 enable ionCube for that particular release with just a click in your Hepsia Control Panel. Our system will remember your choice, so if you move back to the previous release of PHP, the instrument will already be active. For more tech-savvy users, we also offer the option to select the PHP version and if ionCube will be active or not for a particular domain name without altering the settings for the entire web hosting account. This can be done by putting a php.ini file within a domain folder with several lines of program code.
