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

IonCube in Shared Web Hosting

IonCube Loader comes with all the shared web hosting packages that we supply, so when you need it in order to install and run some script application which requires it, you can enable it with a click in the Advanced section of the Hepsia Control Panel. Due to the fact that you'll be able to change the PHP release that's active for your account from the same section, you'll have to activate the tool for any new version which you set. When you're more skillful, you can employ a php.ini file in a domain or subdomain folder and set both the PHP version and the status of ionCube Loader for that particular website only, without affecting the entire account. This way you will be able to run both new and older script applications for multiple sites within the same account - something that you cannot do with many other hosting providers out there.

IonCube in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Each and every semi-dedicated server account that is generated on our outstanding cloud web hosting platform comes with ionCube Loader support, which means that you will be able to set up any kind of script application which needs the tool. Then use it in order to launch and maintain your web presence. You can activate ionCube through the PHP Configuration section of your Control Panel and it will take you just a couple of clicks to do that. Your change takes effect right away, so you will be able to go ahead and set up the necessary script in your account. If you'd like to change the PHP version which is active for your account, you'll need to activate ionCube for the new release as well. Our custom-built platform also allows you to have a different PHP version for each domain or subdomain, which is done with a php.ini file in every domain folder. In the same way, you can enable/disable ionCube Loader for each individual website hosted in your semi-dedicated account.
