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

IonCube in Hosting

IonCube Loader is supplied with each Linux hosting package that we offer and you will be able to activate it anytime with only a couple of clicks, so you can use script applications that need it. You're able to do this from the PHP Configuration section of the Hepsia Control Panel and all it'll take to activate or disable ionCube is to click a single button. The change takes effect in a minute, therefore you're able to go ahead and set up the application that you would like without delay. The same section will allow you to switch the PHP release that's active for your account, because we support numerous releases on our cutting-edge cloud platform. In case you move to a release that you haven't used so far, you will have to enable ionCube Loader once again. Experienced users will be able to 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

In case you obtain a semi-dedicated server plan from our company, you can use any script-driven application which requires ionCube Loader because the tool comes with all of the servers that are a part of our revolutionary cloud web hosting platform. Furthermore, we support multiple versions 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 this particular release with only a click in your Hepsia Control Panel. Our system will remember your decision, so in case you switch back to the previous release of PHP, the software tool will already be active. For more experienced users, we also offer the option to pick the PHP version and whether ionCube will be active or not for a particular domain without altering the settings for the whole hosting account. This can be done by putting a php.ini file in a domain folder with a couple of lines of code.
