A lot of script-driven applications, especially paid content management systems, encrypt their files to make sure that they won't be reverse engineered or tampered with. Most of them use an application named ionCube PHP Encoder to do that, so, in case you obtain a paid script and you intend to install it in a website hosting account, a software tool called ionCube Loader must be present on your server. Without this, you cannot install the script or if you somehow manage to do that, it won't operate properly for the reason that almost all of the script code will be encoded to a point where it can't be interpreted. In this light, you need to ensure that ionCube Loader is installed if you get a new website hosting account and you'd like to employ some paid web application. If you acquire a shared web hosting account and the instrument is not present, it can't be added as the entire server PHP environment shall have to be compiled again.

IonCube in Cloud Web Hosting

IonCube Loader is available with all the cloud web hosting packages that we provide, so if you need it to set up and run some script app which needs it, you can enable it with a single click in the Advanced area of the Hepsia Control Panel. Due to the fact that you're able to change the PHP release which is active for your account from the same section, you will need to enable the instrument for every new version which you set. If you are more skillful, you will be able to use a php.ini file in a domain or subdomain folder and set the PHP version and the status of ionCube Loader for that particular website only, without affecting the whole account. Thus you can run both new and older script applications for multiple sites inside the same account - something that you won't be able to do with lots of other website hosting suppliers on the market.

IonCube in Semi-dedicated Servers

Each semi-dedicated server account which is generated on our cutting-edge cloud hosting platform comes with ionCube Loader support, which means that you'll be able to install any script application which requires the software tool. Then use it to launch and maintain your internet presence. You can enable ionCube from the PHP Configuration section of your Control Panel and it will take you only a couple of clicks to do this. The change will take effect instantly, which means that you'll be able to go ahead and set up the necessary script inside your account. If you choose to switch the PHP version which is active for your account, you will have to enable ionCube for the new release as well. Our tailor-made platform also allows you to have a different PHP version 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.
