Plenty of script-driven applications, especially paid content management systems, encode their files in order 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 this, so if you obtain a paid script and you'd like to set it up in a website hosting account, a software instrument called ionCube Loader has to be present on the server. Without it, you can't install the script or if you somehow manage to do this, it won't operate effectively due to the fact that almost all of the script code will be encrypted to a degree where it cannot be interpreted. In this light, you need to ensure that ionCube Loader is installed when you get a new website hosting account and you'd like to use some paid web app. If you buy a shared web hosting account and the tool is not present, it cannot be added since your entire server PHP environment shall have to be compiled again.

IonCube in Cloud Website Hosting

When you obtain a cloud website hosting from us, it will be created on our in-house built cloud platform where ionCube Loader is already present, so you will not have any problems to run any script application that needs the tool to function appropriately. We also offer you a few different versions of PHP, therefore in case you switch the version, you'll need to activate ionCube again. Our platform remembers the changes you make, and if you go back to the previous release of PHP that was active for your account, ionCube Loader will already be activated. The PHP version as well as the ionCube tool can be managed from the PHP Configuration part of our Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. Any change that you do takes literally just a single click and it'll take effect right away.

IonCube in Semi-dedicated Hosting

IonCube Loader is provided with all Linux semi-dedicated hosting that we supply, and you won't have any problems in case you'd like to set up and work with a script application that requires the tool in order to operate properly. Enabling it is as simple as clicking a button inside the Advanced part of the Hepsia Control Panel which comes with all of the semi-dedicated accounts and the change shall take effect in a minute, which means that you can move forward with the application set up without delay. As we employ a cutting-edge custom-built platform and we support a number of versions of PHP at the same time, you'll have to enable ionCube any time you move to a version that you have not used before. Additionally, you have the option to enable ionCube loader or even to set a PHP version different from the one in the account as a whole by generating a php.ini file in an individual domain or subdomain folder and adding several lines of code in it.
