Lots of script-driven apps, especially paid content management systems, encrypt their files to ensure that they won't be reverse engineered or tampered with. Most of them use an application named ionCube PHP Encoder to do that, so if you get a paid script and you want to set it up in a website hosting account, a tool known as ionCube Loader needs to be present on the server. Without it, you won't be able to install the script or if you somehow find a way to do this, it will not function properly for the reason that most of the script code will be encrypted to a point where it can't be interpreted. That is why, you have to ensure that ionCube Loader is set up when you get a new web hosting account and you want to work with some paid web application. If you buy a shared hosting account and the instrument is not present, it can't be added because the entire server PHP environment shall have to be compiled again.

IonCube in Shared Hosting

IonCube Loader comes with all shared hosting plans that we offer, so when you require it to set up and execute some script application that requires it, you can activate it with a single click in the Advanced area of your Hepsia Control Panel. Because you'll be able to switch the PHP release that is active for your account in the same section, you'll have to enable the tool for each new version that you set. When you're more experienced, you'll be able to take advantage of a php.ini file in a domain or subdomain folder and set both the PHP version and the status of ionCube Loader for that particular site only, without affecting the entire account. This way you will be able to operate both new and older script apps for multiple sites in the same account - a thing that you can't do with many other website hosting suppliers available on the market.

IonCube in Semi-dedicated Servers

Every single semi-dedicated server account which is set up on our cutting-edge cloud web hosting platform has ionCube Loader support, and you will be able to set up any kind of script application that requires the tool. Then use it to start and maintain your online presence. You can activate ionCube through the PHP Configuration section of your Control Panel and it will take you no more than a couple of clicks to do this. The change will take effect without delay, so you will be able to proceed and set up the needed script in your account. If you'd like to switch the PHP version that is active for your account, you will have to enable ionCube for the new release as well. Our custom-built 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 website hosted in your semi-dedicated account.
