Lots of script-driven apps, especially paid content management systems, encrypt their files to ensure that they will not be reverse engineered or tampered with. Most of them use an application named ionCube PHP Encoder to do that, so if you acquire a paid script and you'd like to install it in a web hosting account, an instrument called ionCube Loader has to be present on your server. Without it, you will not be able to install the script or in case you somehow find a way to do that, it won't operate effectively as most of the script code will be encoded to a degree where it cannot be interpreted. That is why, you should make sure that ionCube Loader is present if you get a fresh web hosting account and you want to work with some paid web application. If you get a shared web hosting account and the instrument is not present, it cannot be added because the whole server PHP environment will have to be compiled again.

IonCube in Hosting

IonCube Loader is present on all the web servers which are part of our cloud website hosting platform, so irrespective of the Linux hosting service that you pick during the signup process, you'll be able to enable it from the Hepsia Control Panel. The process is as easy as right-clicking an On/Off button inside the Advanced section, so even if this is your first hosting account ever, you won't have to do anything complicated. The exact same section allows you to choose the PHP version for your account (4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4, 5.5), which means that if you decide to switch to a different version, you just need to activate ionCube Loader for it too. As our platform is flexible, you can set some other PHP version and another status of ionCube by using a php.ini file in every domain folder. In case this is something you would like to do but you don't have much experience, our 24/7 support team will help you quickly.

IonCube in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Each and every semi-dedicated server account which is created on our outstanding cloud web hosting platform features ionCube Loader support, which means that you can install any script application that needs the software tool. Then use it to launch and maintain your world wide web presence. You can activate ionCube through the PHP Configuration section of the Control Panel and it'll take you only a few clicks to do that. Your change will take effect without delay, so you'll be able to go ahead and set up the necessary script in your account. If you choose to switch the PHP version which is active for your account, you will need to activate ionCube for the new version as well. Our custom platform also allows you to have a different PHP version for each domain or subdomain, which is done with a php.ini file in each 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.
