Lots of script-driven applications, particularly paid content management systems, encode their files in order to make sure that they won't be reverse engineered or tampered with. The majority of them use an application called ionCube PHP Encoder to do this, so if you purchase a paid script and you intend to install it in a web hosting account, an instrument known as ionCube Loader has to be present on your server. Without it, you won't be able to install the script or in case you somehow find a way to do that, it won't work properly since almost all of the script code will be encoded to a degree where it can't be interpreted. That is why, you should ensure that ionCube Loader is set up when you get a new website hosting account and you would like to employ some paid web app. If you purchase a shared hosting account and the tool is not present, it can't be added as your entire server PHP environment shall have to be compiled again.

IonCube in Cloud Hosting

IonCube Loader is provided with all cloud hosting plans which we supply, so every time you require it in order to install and execute some script app which needs it, you can activate it with a single click in the Advanced area of the Hepsia Control Panel. As you can switch the PHP version that's active for your account from the same section, you need to activate the tool for any new version which you set. If you're more skillful, you are able to take advantage of a php.ini file in a domain or subdomain folder and set the PHP version as well as the status of ionCube Loader for this particular website only, without affecting the entire account. In this way you can operate both new and older script apps for multiple sites inside the same account - something that you can't do with numerous other website hosting providers out there.

IonCube in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Each and every semi-dedicated server account that is generated on our modern cloud web hosting platform includes ionCube Loader support, and you will be able to set up any script application which requires the tool. Then use it to start and maintain your web presence. You can enable ionCube through the PHP Configuration section of the Control Panel and it will take you only a couple of clicks to do that. Your change takes effect instantly, so you'll be able to proceed and install the necessary script in your account. If you choose to change the PHP version that's active for your account, you'll have to activate ionCube for the new release too. Our tailor-made platform also allows you to have a different PHP release for each domain or subdomain, which is done with a php.ini file in each domain folder. In the same way, you'll be able to enable/disable ionCube Loader for each individual site hosted in your semi-dedicated account.
