Plenty of script-driven apps, especially paid cms, encode their files in order to make sure that they will not be reverse engineered or tampered with. Many of them use an application called ionCube PHP Encoder to do that, so if you buy a paid script and you intend to install it in a web hosting account, a tool known as ionCube Loader has to be present on your server. Without having it, you won't be able to install the script or in case you somehow manage to do that, it will not work properly due to the fact that almost all of the script code will be encoded to a degree where it can't be interpreted. In this light, you should ensure that ionCube Loader is present if you get a fresh web hosting account and you want to employ some paid web application. If you obtain a shared hosting account and the instrument is not present, it cannot be added because the entire server PHP environment will have to be compiled again.

IonCube in Cloud Hosting

IonCube Loader is available on all the web servers which are a part of our cloud hosting platform, therefore regardless of the cloud hosting that you choose during the signup process, you can enable it from the Hepsia Control Panel. This process is as simple as right-clicking an On/Off button in the Advanced section, so even if this is your first web hosting account ever, you won't have to do anything complex. The same section enables you to choose the PHP release for your account (4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4, 5.5), which means that in case you would like to switch to a different version, you just have to activate ionCube Loader for it too. Since our platform is quite flexible, you can set another PHP version and another status of ionCube by using a php.ini file in every domain folder. If this is something you want to do but you don't have much experience, the 24/7 support team will assist you in no time.

IonCube in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Each and every semi-dedicated server account that is generated on our outstanding cloud hosting platform features ionCube Loader support, and you'll be able to install any script app which requires the tool. Then employ it in order to launch and maintain your internet presence. You can activate ionCube from the PHP Configuration area of your Control Panel and it'll take you only a couple of clicks to do that. Your change will take effect without delay, which means that you're able to go ahead and set up the needed script in your account. If you decide to change the PHP version that is active for the account, you'll have to activate ionCube for the new release as well. Our custom-made platform also allows you to have a different PHP release for each domain or subdomain, that is done with a php.ini file in every domain folder. In the same way, you're able to enable/disable ionCube Loader for each website hosted in your semi-dedicated account.
