Lots of script-driven apps, especially paid content management systems, encode their files so as to ensure that they will not be reverse engineered or tampered with. The majority of them use an app known as ionCube PHP Encoder to do that, so, in case you obtain a paid script and you'd like to set it up in a web hosting account, an instrument known as ionCube Loader has to be present on the server. Without having it, you can't install the script or if you somehow find a way to do this, it won't operate appropriately since almost all of the script code will be encrypted to a point where it cannot be interpreted. In this light, you have to make sure that ionCube Loader is set up if you get a new hosting account and you want to employ some paid web app. If you acquire a shared website hosting account and the instrument is not present, it can't be added since your entire server PHP environment shall have to be compiled again.

IonCube in Website Hosting

IonCube Loader is supplied with each and every Linux website hosting package that we offer and you can enable it at any time with just a few clicks, so you'll be able to employ script apps that require it. You can do that from the PHP Configuration section of your Hepsia Control Panel and all it takes to activate or disable ionCube is to click a button. The change will take effect in a minute, therefore you'll be able to proceed and set up the application that you need right away. The very same section allows you to switch the PHP release that's active for your account, because we support several releases on our cutting-edge cloud platform. If you move to a version that you have never used to date, you'll need to activate ionCube Loader once again. More advanced users can use a php.ini file in a particular domain folder in order to set a PHP version different from the one for the entire account or enable/disable ionCube Loader.

IonCube in Semi-dedicated Hosting

In case you get a semi-dedicated server plan from our company, you will be able to employ any kind of script-driven application which requires ionCube Loader because the software tool is installed on all the servers that are part of our cutting-edge cloud web hosting platform. Furthermore, we support various releases of PHP, and if you move 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 instance, you can activate ionCube for that particular version with only a click in your Hepsia Control Panel. Our platform will remember your decision, so if you move back to the earlier release of PHP, the 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 specific domain without altering the settings for the whole website hosting account. This can be done by placing a php.ini file inside a domain folder with a few lines of code.
