Plenty of script-driven applications, particularly paid cms, encode their files in order to make sure that they won't be reverse engineered or tampered with. Most of them use an app named ionCube PHP Encoder to do that, so if you purchase a paid script and you would like to install it in a website hosting account, an instrument called ionCube Loader must be present on your server. Without this, you won't be able to install the script or if you somehow manage to do this, it will not operate appropriately due to the fact that most of the script code will be encrypted to a degree where it can't be interpreted. That is why, you should ensure that ionCube Loader is installed if you get a fresh web hosting account and you'd like to work with some paid web app. If you obtain a shared web hosting account and the instrument is not present, it can't be added because the whole server PHP environment will have to be compiled again.

IonCube in Cloud Website Hosting

IonCube Loader is available on all of the web servers that are part of our cloud web hosting platform, therefore regardless of the Linux cloud website hosting plan that you choose during the signup process, you'll be able to enable it through the Hepsia Control Panel. The process is as simple as clicking an On/Off button in the Advanced section, so even if this is your first web hosting account ever, you will not have to do anything complex. The exact same section will allow you to pick the PHP release 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), and if you decide to move to a different version, you just need to activate ionCube Loader for it too. As our platform is quite flexible, you may even set a different PHP version and another status of ionCube by using a php.ini file in each domain folder. If this is something you would like to do but you do not have much experience, the 24/7 tech support team shall assist you within minutes.

IonCube in Semi-dedicated Servers

As all of the semi-dedicated server accounts are created on our advanced cluster platform and ionCube Loader is available on it, you shall be able to use any script application which needs this tool so as to work effectively. With just a few clicks in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel you are able to activate or deactivate ionCube for the PHP version which is currently active for your account. As we support a couple of releases of PHP at the same time, you'll have to do that every time you switch to a new release, and if you revert back to a release which you have already used, our system will remember your choice and ionCube Loader will already be activated. In case you have a couple of websites inside the same account and they require different versions of PHP, you can create a php.ini file in every single domain folder and with a couple of lines of code you are able to define both the PHP release as well as the status of ionCube irrespective of what is selected for the website hosting account altogether.
