Plenty of script-driven applications, especially paid content management systems, encode their files to ensure that they won't be reverse engineered or tampered with. Most of them use an app known as ionCube PHP Encoder to do this, so if you obtain a paid script and you'd like to install it in a website hosting account, a software tool known as ionCube Loader must be present on your server. Without it, you can't install the script or in case you somehow manage to do this, it will not operate properly since almost all of the script code will be encrypted to a degree where it cannot be interpreted. That is why, you need to ensure that ionCube Loader is present if you get a fresh website hosting account and you'd like to take advantage of some paid web application. If you acquire a shared website hosting account and the tool is not present, it cannot be added as your entire server PHP environment will have to be compiled again.

IonCube in Cloud Hosting

IonCube Loader is supplied with each and every Linux cloud hosting that we offer and you can activate it anytime with only a few clicks, so you can take advantage of script applications which require it. You're able to do this from the PHP Configuration area of the Hepsia Control Panel and all it will take to activate or deactivate ionCube is to click a button. The change takes effect in a minute, which means that you'll be able to go ahead and set up the app that you'd like right away. The very same section allows you to change the PHP version that is active for your account, as we support multiple versions on our state-of-the-art cloud hosting platform. If you switch to a release that you have not used so far, you will have to enable ionCube Loader again. Experienced users can use a php.ini file in a specific domain folder so as to set a PHP release different from the one for the whole account or enable/disable ionCube Loader.

IonCube in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Each and every semi-dedicated server account that's created on our cutting-edge cloud hosting platform has ionCube Loader support, and you can set up any kind of script app that requires the software tool. Then use it to launch and maintain your internet presence. You can enable ionCube from the PHP Configuration area of the Control Panel and it'll take you no more than a couple of clicks to do this. The change will take effect without delay, so you're able to proceed and set up the needed script inside your account. If you'd like to switch the PHP version that is active for the account, you will 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 domain or subdomain, that is done with a php.ini file in every domain folder. In the same way, you can enable/disable ionCube Loader for each individual website hosted in your semi-dedicated account.
