Plenty of script-driven apps, particularly paid cms, encode their files to ensure that they will not be reverse engineered or tampered with. Most of them use an application named ionCube PHP Encoder to do this, so if you acquire a paid script and you want to set it up in a web hosting account, a tool known as ionCube Loader must be present on your server. Without this, you won't be able to install the script or if you somehow manage to do this, it won't function effectively for the reason that almost all of the script code will be encrypted to a point where it cannot be interpreted. In this light, you should make sure that ionCube Loader is set up if you get a fresh website hosting account and you would like to take advantage of some paid web application. If you purchase a shared web hosting account and the instrument is not present, it cannot be added since the whole server PHP environment shall have to be compiled again.

IonCube in Hosting

IonCube Loader is installed on all web servers which are a part of our cloud hosting platform, therefore regardless of the hosting plan that you pick during the signup process, you will be able to enable it from your Hepsia Control Panel. The process is as simple as right-clicking an On/Off button inside the Advanced section, so even if this will be your first hosting account ever, you will not need to do anything complex. The same section allows you to choose the PHP release for your account (4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4, 5.5), which means that if you would like to move to a different version, you only need to activate ionCube Loader for it as well. As our platform is very flexible, you can even set another PHP version and another status of ionCube using a php.ini file in every domain folder. In case this is something you wish to do but you do not have much experience, the 24/7 tech support team will help you in no time.

IonCube in Semi-dedicated Servers

IonCube Loader is provided with all of the semi-dedicated plans that we offer, and you won't have any problems if you'd like to set up and use a script app that requires the software instrument so as to function appropriately. Enabling it is as easy as clicking a button in the Advanced area of the Hepsia Control Panel that comes with all the semi-dedicated accounts and the change will take effect in less than a minute, which means that you will be able to move forward with the app installation without delay. Because we employ an innovative custom-built platform and we support a number of versions of PHP simultaneously, you'll need to enable ionCube any time you move to a version that you haven't used before. You will also have the option to enable ionCube loader and even to set a PHP version different from the one in the account as a whole by making a php.ini file in an individual domain or subdomain folder and adding several lines of code in it.
