Plenty of script-driven apps, particularly paid cms, encrypt their files so as 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, in case you buy a paid script and you wish to install it in a web hosting account, a tool called ionCube Loader has to be present on the server. Without having it, you cannot install the script or in case you somehow manage to do that, it will not work efficiently as almost all of the script code will be encrypted to a degree where it cannot be interpreted. In this light, you have to make sure that ionCube Loader is set up if you get a fresh website hosting account and you want to take advantage of some paid web app. If you obtain a shared hosting account and the tool is not present, it cannot be added because the whole server PHP environment will have to be compiled again.

IonCube in Website Hosting

IonCube Loader is provided with all the website hosting plans which we offer, so when you require it in order to install and execute a script application that requires it, you can enable it with a single click in 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'll have to activate the tool for every new version that you set. In case you are more experienced, you can take advantage of 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 that particular website only, without affecting the entire account. In this way you'll be able to operate both new and older script applications for multiple websites in the same account - a thing that you won't be able to do with numerous other website hosting suppliers on the market.

IonCube in Semi-dedicated Hosting

In case you obtain a semi-dedicated server plan from us, you can employ any script-driven app which requires ionCube Loader for the reason that the tool comes with all of the servers that are part of our advanced cloud hosting platform. In addition, we support several versions of PHP, therefore 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 example, you can enable ionCube for this particular release with just a click in your Hepsia Control Panel. Our platform will remember your choice, and in case you move back to the earlier version of PHP, the software tool will already be active. For more tech-savvy users, we also offer the option to choose the PHP version and if ionCube will be active or not for a specific domain without altering the settings for the entire web hosting account. This is done by putting a php.ini file in a domain folder with several lines of code.
