Lots of script-driven applications, particularly paid cms, encode their files in order to ensure that they won't be reverse engineered or tampered with. Many of them use an app named ionCube PHP Encoder to do this, so when you acquire a paid script and you want to install it in a website hosting account, a software instrument known as ionCube Loader has to be present on your server. Without it, you will not be able to install the script or in case you somehow manage to do that, it won't function effectively due to the fact that most of the script code will be encrypted to a degree where it cannot be interpreted. That is why, you need to make sure that ionCube Loader is installed if you get a new website hosting account and you wish to use some paid web app. If you obtain a shared website hosting account and the instrument is not present, it cannot be added because your entire server PHP environment shall have to be compiled again.

IonCube in Shared Web Hosting

When you purchase a Linux shared web hosting plan from us, it'll be set up on our custom cloud platform where ionCube Loader is already installed, so you won't have any kind of problems to manage any script app that requires the instrument to function properly. We also supply a few different versions of PHP, which means that if you change the version, you need to activate ionCube again. Our platform remembers the adjustments you make, and when you go back to the previous release of PHP which was active for your account, ionCube Loader will already be enabled. The PHP version as well as the ionCube tool can be operated from the PHP Configuration area of our Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. Each adjustment that you do takes literally just a mouse-click and it takes effect instantly.

IonCube in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you buy a semi-dedicated server package from us, you can use any script-driven application that needs ionCube Loader for the reason that the software tool is available on all the servers which are a part of our state-of-the-art cloud website hosting platform. In addition, we support various releases of PHP, therefore if you move 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 activate ionCube for that particular version with only a click from your Hepsia Control Panel. Our system will remember your choice, and if you move back to the previous version of PHP, the instrument will already be active. For more tech-savvy users, we also offer the option to choose the PHP version and whether ionCube will be active or not for a specific domain without altering the settings for the whole web hosting account. This can be done by putting a php.ini file within a domain folder with a few lines of code.
