A lot of script-driven apps, particularly paid cms, encode their files so as to make sure that they will not be reverse engineered or tampered with. Many of them use an application named ionCube PHP Encoder to do that, so, in case you obtain a paid script and you'd like to set it up in a website hosting account, an instrument called ionCube Loader must be present on your server. Without having it, you cannot install the script or if you somehow find a way to do that, it won't function properly due to the fact that most of the script code will be encoded to a point where it cannot be interpreted. That's why, you need to ensure that ionCube Loader is installed if you get a new web hosting account and you would like to take advantage of some paid web application. If you purchase a shared web 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 Shared Website Hosting

When you obtain a Linux shared website hosting from us, it'll be created on our custom-built cloud platform where ionCube Loader is already set up, so you will not have any kind of problems to manage any script application which requires the tool so as to function properly. We also offer several different releases of PHP, therefore if you change the version, you will need to enable ionCube again. Our platform remembers the changes you make, and if you move back to the previous version of PHP which was active for your account, ionCube Loader will already be turned on. The PHP version and the ionCube tool can be managed through the PHP Configuration part of our Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. Every adjustment that you make takes literally just a mouse-click and it will take effect immediately.

IonCube in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Each and every semi-dedicated server account which is generated on our modern cloud website hosting platform features ionCube Loader support, and you can install any script application that needs the software tool. Then use it in order to launch and maintain your online presence. You can enable ionCube from the PHP Configuration area of your Control Panel and it will take you just a couple of clicks to do that. The change will take effect without delay, so you will be able to go ahead and install the needed script inside your account. If you would like change the PHP version that is active for your account, you need to enable ionCube for the new version too. Our in-house made platform also allows you to have a different PHP version for each domain or subdomain, that 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 website hosted in your semi-dedicated account.
