Plenty of script-driven applications, particularly paid content management systems, encode their files in order to make sure that they will not be reverse engineered or tampered with. Many of them use an app named ionCube PHP Encoder to do that, so if you get a paid script and you wish to install it in a web hosting account, an instrument called ionCube Loader has to be present on your server. Without this, you won't be able to install the script or if you somehow find a way to do this, it will not operate properly due to the fact that most of the script code will be encrypted to a degree where it can't be interpreted. That is why, you need to make sure that ionCube Loader is installed when you get a fresh web hosting account and you want to use some paid web application. If you acquire a shared website hosting account and the tool is not present, it can't be added since the entire server PHP environment shall have to be compiled again.

IonCube in Shared Hosting

IonCube Loader comes with all of the shared hosting packages that we provide, so when you require it to install and execute a script app that requires it, you can activate it with a single click inside the Advanced section of the Hepsia Control Panel. Because you are able to change the PHP release that is active for your account from the same section, you need to enable the instrument for any new version which you set. When you are more experienced, you'll be able to 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 this particular site only, without affecting the entire account. Thus you're able to operate both new and older script applications for multiple sites in the same account - something that you won't be able to do with many other hosting suppliers out there.

IonCube in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Every single semi-dedicated server account which is created on our outstanding cloud website hosting platform comes with ionCube Loader support, and you'll be able to set up any kind of script application that requires the software tool. Then use it in order to start and maintain your online presence. You can activate ionCube through the PHP Configuration area of your Control Panel and it'll take you only a few clicks to do this. The change takes effect without delay, which means that you are able to proceed and set up the necessary script inside your account. If you would like switch the PHP version that's active for the account, you'll need to enable ionCube for the new version as well. 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'll be able to enable/disable ionCube Loader for each website hosted in your semi-dedicated account.
