A lot of script-driven applications, particularly paid content management systems, 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 named ionCube PHP Encoder to do that, so when you acquire a paid script and you want to install it in a web hosting account, an instrument known as ionCube Loader has to be present on the server. Without this, you cannot install the script or in case you somehow find a way to do that, it will not work effectively for the reason that almost all of the script code will be encoded to a degree where it can't be interpreted. In this light, you have to ensure that ionCube Loader is set up when you get a fresh hosting account and you'd like to employ some paid web app. If you buy a shared web hosting account and the tool is not present, it cannot be added because the whole server PHP environment will have to be compiled again.

IonCube in Shared Hosting

IonCube Loader is available with all shared hosting plans which we offer, so any time you need it to set up and run some script application which requires it, you can enable it with a click from the Advanced section of the Hepsia Control Panel. Because you're able to change the PHP version which is active for your account in the same section, you'll have to activate the instrument for any new version which you set. When you are more skillful, you can employ a php.ini file in a domain or subdomain folder and set both the PHP version as well as the status of ionCube Loader for that particular site only, without affecting the whole account. In this way you can run both new and older script applications for multiple websites within the same account - a thing that you won't be able to do with various other web hosting suppliers available on the market.

IonCube in Semi-dedicated Servers

Each semi-dedicated server account that is set up on our outstanding cloud website hosting platform includes ionCube Loader support, which means that you will be able to set up any kind of script app that needs the tool. Then use it to start and maintain your world wide web presence. You can activate ionCube from the PHP Configuration section of the Control Panel and it'll take you no more than a couple of clicks to do that. The change takes effect instantly, so you can proceed and install the needed script in your account. If you'd like to switch the PHP version which is active for your account, you will need to enable ionCube for the new release too. 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're able to enable/disable ionCube Loader for each individual website hosted in your semi-dedicated account.
