Plenty of script-driven apps, particularly paid content management systems, encrypt their files to ensure that they will not be reverse engineered or tampered with. The majority of them use an application named ionCube PHP Encoder to do that, so when you purchase a paid script and you would like to install it in a website hosting account, a software tool known as ionCube Loader needs to be present on your server. Without it, you cannot install the script or in case you somehow find a way to do this, it will not operate properly as most of the script code will be encrypted to a degree where it can't be interpreted. That is why, you need to make sure that ionCube Loader is set up if you get a fresh website hosting account and you'd like to employ some paid web application. If you obtain a shared hosting account and the instrument is not present, it cannot be added since the whole server PHP environment will have to be compiled again.

IonCube in Shared Hosting

IonCube Loader is available with all the shared hosting plans that we offer, so every time you require it in order to install and run a script app which requires it, you can enable it with a click inside the Advanced section of the Hepsia Control Panel. Because you'll be able to change the PHP release which is active for your account in the same section, you need to enable the tool for every new version which you set. If you are more experienced, you can employ a php.ini file in a domain or subdomain folder and set both the PHP version as well as the status of ionCube Loader for this particular site only, without affecting the entire account. This way you are able to operate both new and older script apps for multiple sites within the same account - something that you cannot do with many other hosting suppliers on the market.

IonCube in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Each semi-dedicated server account that's set up on our modern cloud hosting platform features ionCube Loader support, which means that you'll be able to install any kind of script app that requires the software tool. Then employ it to start and maintain your web presence. You can activate ionCube through the PHP Configuration section of your Control Panel and it will take you only a couple of clicks to do this. Your change takes effect immediately, so you are able to go ahead and set up the needed script in your account. If you would like change the PHP version which is active for the account, you will need to activate ionCube for the new version as well. Our custom-built platform also allows you to have a different PHP version for each and every domain or subdomain, which is done with a php.ini file in each domain folder. In the same way, you will be able to enable/disable ionCube Loader for each site hosted in your semi-dedicated account.
