Lots of script-driven apps, particularly paid content management systems, encrypt their files so as to make sure that they won't be reverse engineered or tampered with. Many of them use an app called ionCube PHP Encoder to do that, so if you purchase a paid script and you would like to install it in a hosting account, an instrument known as ionCube Loader must be present on your server. Without this, you can't install the script or if you somehow find a way to do that, it will not work effectively as almost all of the script code will be encrypted to a point where it cannot be interpreted. In this light, you need to make sure that ionCube Loader is installed when you get a fresh website hosting account and you would like to use some paid web application. If you get a shared web hosting account and the instrument is not present, it can't be added as the whole server PHP environment will have to be compiled again.

IonCube in Shared Hosting

When you buy a Linux shared hosting from our company, it'll be created on our in-house made cloud platform where ionCube Loader is already set up, so you will not have any kind of problems to run any script app which needs the tool in order to run appropriately. In addition, we supply a few different releases of PHP, which means that if you switch the version, you'll have to enable ionCube once again. Our platform remembers the changes you make, which means that when you switch back to the previous release of PHP which was active for your account, ionCube Loader will already be turned on. The PHP version and the ionCube instrument can be operated through the PHP Configuration area of our Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Every adjustment that you make takes literally just a single click and it will take effect immediately.

IonCube in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Every single semi-dedicated server account that's created on our cutting-edge cloud hosting platform includes ionCube Loader support, which means that you will be able to install any kind of script app which needs the software tool. Then use it to start and maintain your internet presence. You can enable ionCube from the PHP Configuration section of your Control Panel and it will take you just a couple of clicks to do that. Your change will take effect immediately, 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'll have to activate ionCube for the new version too. Our in-house built 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 website hosted in your semi-dedicated account.
