A lot of script-driven apps, especially paid cms, encrypt their files 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 this, so when you acquire a paid script and you want to install it in a website hosting account, a tool called ionCube Loader needs to be present on the server. Without having it, you can't install the script or if you somehow manage to do that, it will not operate properly for the reason that almost all of the script code will be encoded to a degree where it cannot be interpreted. In this light, you should make sure that ionCube Loader is installed when you get a fresh hosting account and you'd like to employ some paid web application. If you purchase a shared web hosting account and the instrument is not present, it cannot be added since your entire server PHP environment will have to be compiled again.

IonCube in Cloud Web Hosting

IonCube Loader is present on all web servers that are a part of our cloud hosting platform, so whatever the Linux cloud web hosting package that you select during the signup process, you will be able to enable it through the Hepsia Control Panel. The process is as simple as clicking an On/Off button from the Advanced section, so even if this will be your first web hosting account ever, you will not need to do anything complex. The very same section allows you to select the PHP release 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), which means that in case you want to move to some other version, you only have to activate ionCube Loader for it as well. Due to the fact that our platform is really flexible, you can set a different PHP version and another status of ionCube using a php.ini file in every domain folder. If this is something you want to do but you do not have much experience, the 24/7 support team will be able to help you in no time.

IonCube in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Every single semi-dedicated server account which is set up on our cutting-edge cloud website hosting platform includes ionCube Loader support, which means that you can install any script application which needs the software tool. Then employ it to start and maintain your internet presence. You can activate ionCube through the PHP Configuration area of the Control Panel and it will take you no more than a couple of clicks to do that. Your change will take effect immediately, so you'll be able to proceed and install the necessary script in your account. If you'd like to switch the PHP version that is active for the account, you should enable ionCube for the new version as well. Our in-house made platform also allows you to have a different PHP version for each and every domain or subdomain, that 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 website hosted in your semi-dedicated account.
