Lots of script-driven apps, especially paid cms, encrypt their files to make sure that they will not be reverse engineered or tampered with. Many of them use an app named ionCube PHP Encoder to do that, so if you purchase a paid script and you intend to set it up in a website hosting account, a tool known as ionCube Loader must be present on your server. Without it, you can't install the script or if you somehow find a way to do that, it won't function effectively as most of the script code will be encrypted to a degree where it cannot be interpreted. In this light, you should ensure that ionCube Loader is set up if you get a fresh web hosting account and you want to work with some paid web app. If you obtain a shared web hosting account and the instrument is not present, it cannot be added since the entire server PHP environment shall have to be compiled again.

IonCube in Website Hosting

IonCube Loader is present on all web servers that are part of our cloud website hosting platform, therefore regardless of the website hosting that you choose during the signup process, you can enable it from your Hepsia Control Panel. This process is as simple as right-clicking an On/Off button in the Advanced section, so even if this is your first hosting account ever, you will not need to do anything complex. The very same section allows you to choose the PHP version for your account (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), which means that in case you decide to switch to some other version, you just have to activate ionCube Loader for it too. Because our platform is very flexible, you can even set a different PHP version and another status of ionCube using a php.ini file in each domain folder. In case this is something you wish to do but you do not have much experience, our 24/7 support team will be able to assist you in no time.

IonCube in Semi-dedicated Servers

Every single semi-dedicated server account which is set up on our outstanding cloud web hosting platform has ionCube Loader support, so you'll be able to install any kind of script app that requires the tool. Then employ it to start and maintain your internet presence. You can activate ionCube from the PHP Configuration area of the Control Panel and it will take you only a few clicks to do that. The change takes effect without delay, so you are able to go ahead and set up the needed script inside your account. If you'd like to change the PHP version that's active for your account, you will have to activate ionCube for the new version as well. Our in-house made platform also allows you to have a different PHP version for each and every domain or subdomain, that is done with a php.ini file in each domain folder. In the same way, you'll be able to enable/disable ionCube Loader for each website hosted in your semi-dedicated account.
