Plenty of script-driven applications, 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 application known as ionCube PHP Encoder to do this, so when you buy a paid script and you would like to install it in a web hosting account, a tool called ionCube Loader needs to be present on your server. Without it, you won't be able to install the script or in case you somehow manage to do this, it won't operate appropriately due to the fact that most of the script code will be encoded to a degree where it can't be interpreted. That is why, you need to ensure that ionCube Loader is present when you get a fresh web hosting account and you would like to use some paid web app. If you acquire a shared hosting account and the instrument is not present, it cannot be added since the entire server PHP environment shall have to be compiled again.

IonCube in Shared Website Hosting

If you get a shared website hosting plan from us, it'll be created on our in-house built cloud hosting platform where ionCube Loader is already set up, so you will not have any problems to run any script app which needs the tool to run properly. Furthermore, we offer you several different releases of PHP, therefore in case you change the version, you need to enable ionCube again. Our platform remembers the changes you make, and in case you move back to the earlier version of PHP which was active for your account, ionCube Loader will already be enabled. Both the PHP version and the ionCube tool can be operated through the PHP Configuration section of our Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. Any change that you make takes literally just a click and it will take effect at once.

IonCube in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you obtain a semi-dedicated server plan from our company, you can use any kind of script-driven app that requires ionCube Loader since the software tool is installed on all of the servers which are a part of our revolutionary cloud website hosting platform. Furthermore, we support different releases of PHP, so if you switch 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 that particular release with just a click in your Hepsia Control Panel. Our platform will remember your decision, and in case you switch back to the earlier release of PHP, the instrument will already be active. For more experienced users, we also offer the option to select the PHP version and whether ionCube will be active or not for a particular domain name without altering the settings for the entire hosting account. This is done by placing a php.ini file inside a domain folder with a couple of lines of code.
