A lot of script-driven apps, particularly paid content management systems, encode their files so as to make sure that they will not be reverse engineered or tampered with. Many of them use an application called ionCube PHP Encoder to do that, so if you obtain a paid script and you want to set it up in a website hosting account, an instrument known as ionCube Loader must be present on the server. Without this, you can't install the script or if you somehow manage to do this, it will not work appropriately since almost all of the script code will be encrypted to a point where it can't be interpreted. That is why, you have to ensure that ionCube Loader is installed when you get a new website hosting account and you want to employ some paid web application. If you purchase a shared web hosting account and the instrument is not present, it can't be added because your entire server PHP environment will have to be compiled again.

IonCube in Cloud Hosting

IonCube Loader is supplied with every single Linux cloud hosting package that we offer and you will be able to activate it at any time with just a few clicks, so you can work with script apps that require it. You're able to do this from the PHP Configuration area of your Hepsia Control Panel and all it will take to enable or disable ionCube is to click a button. The change takes effect within a minute, so you can proceed and set up the application that you would like without delay. The exact same section allows you to change the PHP version that is active for your account, because we support several releases on our advanced cloud platform. In case you switch to a release that you have not used so far, you will need to activate ionCube Loader again. Experienced users can use a php.ini file in a particular domain folder in order to set a PHP release different from the one for the entire account or enable/disable ionCube Loader.

IonCube in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Each and every semi-dedicated server account which is set up on our modern cloud website hosting platform comes with ionCube Loader support, and you will be able to set up any kind of script app that needs the software tool. Then employ it in order to start and maintain your online presence. You can activate ionCube through the PHP Configuration area of your Control Panel and it'll take you only a couple of clicks to do that. The change takes effect instantly, so you are able to go ahead and set up the necessary script in your account. If you choose to switch the PHP version that is active for your account, you'll have to activate ionCube for the new release too. Our in-house built platform also allows you to have a different PHP release for each domain or subdomain, that is done with a php.ini file in every domain folder. In the same way, you'll be able to enable/disable ionCube Loader for each individual site hosted in your semi-dedicated account.
