Plenty of script-driven apps, particularly paid cms, encode their files in order to ensure that they won't be reverse engineered or tampered with. Many of them use an app called ionCube PHP Encoder to do this, so if you obtain a paid script and you would like to set it up in a hosting account, a software tool called ionCube Loader has to be present on your server. Without this, you will not be able to install the script or in case you somehow manage to do that, it won't work appropriately since almost all of the script code will be encoded to a point where it can't be interpreted. That is why, you need to make sure that ionCube Loader is installed when you get a new website hosting account and you'd like to take advantage of some paid web app. If you get a shared web hosting account and the tool is not present, it cannot be added since the whole server PHP environment shall have to be compiled again.

IonCube in Cloud Web Hosting

IonCube Loader is supplied with each Linux cloud web hosting package that we offer and you'll be able to enable it anytime with just a few clicks, so you'll be able to employ script applications that require it. You will be able to do this from the PHP Configuration section of your Hepsia Control Panel and all it'll take to activate or deactivate ionCube is to click a single button. The change will take effect within a minute, which means that you will be able to go ahead and install the app that you would like without delay. The very same section will allow you to change the PHP release that is active for your account, as we support numerous releases on our state-of-the-art cloud hosting platform. If you switch to a release that you have never used to date, you'll need to activate ionCube Loader again. Experienced users can use a php.ini file in a specific domain folder to set a PHP version different from the one for the whole account or enable/disable ionCube Loader.

IonCube in Semi-dedicated Hosting

In case you buy a semi-dedicated server plan from our company, you'll be able to employ any kind of script-driven app that requires ionCube Loader for the reason that the tool is available on all the servers that are part of our cutting-edge cloud hosting platform. We also support different versions of PHP, and if you switch from PHP 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, for example, you can activate ionCube for this particular version with just a click from your Hepsia Control Panel. Our platform will remember your choice, so if you switch back to the previous version of PHP, the software instrument will already be active. For more tech-savvy users, we also provide the option to select the PHP version and if ionCube will be active or not for a particular domain without altering the settings for the entire hosting account. This is done by putting a php.ini file in a domain folder with several lines of program code.
