Lots of script-driven applications, especially paid content management systems, encode their files so as to make sure that they won't be reverse engineered or tampered with. The majority of them use an app known as ionCube PHP Encoder to do that, so when you acquire a paid script and you wish to install it in a hosting account, an instrument known as ionCube Loader needs to be present on the server. Without it, you can't install the script or if you somehow find a way to do that, it won't work appropriately since almost all of the script code will be encrypted to a degree where it cannot be interpreted. That is why, you should ensure that ionCube Loader is set up when you get a fresh web hosting account and you would like to work with some paid web application. If you buy a shared website hosting account and the instrument is not present, it cannot be added because the entire server PHP environment will have to be compiled again.

IonCube in Shared Hosting

IonCube Loader is available on all the web servers which are part of our cloud hosting platform, which means that whatever the Linux shared hosting that you get during the signup process, you will be able to enable it from the Hepsia Control Panel. The process is as easy as clicking an On/Off button in the Advanced section, so even if this is your first hosting account ever, you won't have to do anything complex. The same section enables you to choose the PHP version 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), and if you decide to switch to a different version, you just have to activate ionCube Loader for it as well. Due to the fact that our platform is very flexible, you can set a different PHP version and another status of ionCube by using a php.ini file in every domain folder. If this is something you wish to do but you don't have much experience, our 24/7 support team shall assist you within minutes.

IonCube in Semi-dedicated Hosting

IonCube Loader is available with all of the Linux semi-dedicated hosting that we offer, and you won't experience any problems if you'd like to install and work with a script app which requires the tool so as to operate properly. Activating it is as easy as clicking a single button in the Advanced part of the Hepsia Control Panel that comes with all of the semi-dedicated accounts and the change shall take effect in a minute, so you're able to move forward with the application installation without any delays. Due to the fact that we employ a revolutionary custom-built platform and we support multiple versions of PHP simultaneously, you will have to enable ionCube every time you switch to a version that you haven't used before. Additionally, you have the option to activate ionCube loader and even to set a PHP release different from the one in the account as a whole by creating a php.ini file in an individual domain or subdomain folder and adding a few lines of program code within it.
