Plenty of script-driven apps, particularly paid cms, encrypt their files to ensure that they won't be reverse engineered or tampered with. Most of them use an app known as ionCube PHP Encoder to do that, so when you buy a paid script and you would like to install it in a hosting account, a software tool called ionCube Loader has to be present on the server. Without this, you won't be able to install the script or if you somehow manage to do that, it will not work appropriately for the reason that most of the script code will be encrypted to a degree where it can't be interpreted. In this light, you need to ensure that ionCube Loader is set up when you get a fresh website hosting account and you want to use some paid web app. If you get a shared hosting account and the instrument is not present, it can't be added since the entire server PHP environment will have to be compiled again.

IonCube in Hosting

When you aquire a hosting plan through our company, it'll be created on our custom cloud hosting platform where ionCube Loader is already present, so you will not have any problems to run any script app that requires the instrument in order to function appropriately. In addition, we supply a few different versions of PHP, therefore in case you switch the version, you will need to enable ionCube again. Our platform remembers the adjustments you make, so when you switch back to the earlier release of PHP which was active for your account, ionCube Loader will already be enabled. The PHP version as well as the ionCube instrument can be operated from the PHP Configuration section of our Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. Every change that you make takes literally just a single click and it will take effect immediately.

IonCube in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you purchase a semi-dedicated server plan from our company, you can use any kind of script-driven app that needs ionCube Loader due to the fact that the tool is installed on all servers that are part of our innovative cloud web hosting platform. In addition, 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 this particular release with only a click from your Hepsia Control Panel. Our system will remember your choice, and in case you move back to the previous version of PHP, the software instrument will already be active. For more experienced users, we also offer the option to choose the PHP version and whether ionCube will be active or not for a specific domain name without altering the settings for the whole website hosting account. This is done by putting a php.ini file inside a domain folder with a couple of lines of code.
