Lots of script-driven applications, especially paid content management systems, encode their files in order to make sure that they will not be reverse engineered or tampered with. The majority of them use an application called ionCube PHP Encoder to do this, so when you get a paid script and you'd like to install it in a web hosting account, a software tool called ionCube Loader has to be present on your server. Without this, you cannot install the script or in case you somehow manage to do this, it won't work appropriately because almost all of the script code will be encrypted to a point where it can't be interpreted. That is why, you need to make sure that ionCube Loader is set up when you get a fresh website hosting account and you would like to employ some paid web application. If you buy a shared web hosting account and the instrument is not present, it can't be added since your entire server PHP environment will have to be compiled again.

IonCube in Cloud Hosting

IonCube Loader is installed on all of the web servers that are a part of our cloud hosting platform, therefore whatever the cloud hosting service that you pick during the signup process, you can enable it from your Hepsia Control Panel. This process is as easy as right-clicking an On/Off button inside the Advanced section, so even if this is your first website hosting account ever, you won't need to do anything complicated. The very same section enables you to choose the PHP version for your account (4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4, 5.5), which means that if you decide to switch to another version, you just have to activate ionCube Loader for it too. As our platform is flexible, you can even set a different PHP version and another status of ionCube by employing a php.ini file in every domain folder. In case this is something you'd like to do but you do not have much experience, the 24/7 tech support team will help you quickly.

IonCube in Semi-dedicated Servers

As all of the semi-dedicated server accounts are created on our advanced cluster platform and ionCube Loader is available on it, you will be able to use any script app which requires the software tool in order to run properly. With a couple of clicks in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel you will be able to activate or deactivate ionCube for the PHP version which is currently active for the account. As we support several versions of PHP simultaneously, you will have to do that every time you switch to a new release, and when you revert back to a release that you have already used, our system will remember your preference and ionCube Loader will already be active. If you have a couple of websites inside the same account and they need different releases of PHP, you can set up a php.ini file in every single domain folder and with a couple of lines of code you can define both the PHP release plus the status of ionCube no matter what is selected for the website hosting account altogether.
