A lot of script-driven apps, especially paid cms, encrypt their files in order to make sure that they won't be reverse engineered or tampered with. The majority of them use an app called ionCube PHP Encoder to do this, so if you get a paid script and you want to set it up in a web hosting account, a tool called ionCube Loader must be present on your server. Without it, you can't install the script or if you somehow find a way to do that, it will not function properly because almost all of the script code will be encrypted to a degree where it can't be interpreted. In this light, you should ensure that ionCube Loader is present if you get a new web hosting account and you'd like to work with some paid web app. If you buy a shared website hosting account and the tool is not present, it can't be added because the entire server PHP environment will have to be compiled again.

IonCube in Cloud Web Hosting

IonCube Loader is a part of all web servers which are a part of our cloud web hosting platform, which means that irrespective of the cloud web hosting that you get during the signup process, you will be able to activate it through your Hepsia Control Panel. The process is as simple as right-clicking an On/Off button in the Advanced section, so even if this is your first website hosting account ever, you will not need to do anything complex. The very same section will allow you to pick the PHP version 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), so if you decide to switch to a different version, you only need to activate ionCube Loader for it as well. As our platform is very flexible, you can even set some other PHP version and another status of ionCube using a php.ini file in each domain folder. If this is something you want to do but you don't have much experience, our 24/7 support team shall assist you in no time.

IonCube in Semi-dedicated Servers

Every single semi-dedicated server account that's created on our modern cloud hosting platform features ionCube Loader support, which means that you can set up any kind of script application that requires the tool. Then employ it to launch and maintain your world wide web presence. You can activate ionCube from the PHP Configuration area of your Control Panel and it will take you no more than a few clicks to do this. Your change will take effect right away, which means that you are able to go ahead and install the needed script inside your account. If you choose to change the PHP version which is active for your account, you'll need to activate ionCube for the new release as well. Our in-house built platform also allows you to have a different PHP release for each and every domain or subdomain, which is done with a php.ini file in every domain folder. In the same way, you are able to enable/disable ionCube Loader for each individual site hosted in your semi-dedicated account.
