A lot of script-driven apps, particularly paid cms, encrypt their files to ensure that they won't be reverse engineered or tampered with. Most of them use an application called ionCube PHP Encoder to do that, so if you obtain a paid script and you'd like to install it in a hosting account, a software tool known as ionCube Loader must be present on the server. Without having it, you cannot install the script or in case you somehow manage to do that, it will not function properly as most of the script code will be encrypted to a point where it can't be interpreted. In this light, you should make sure that ionCube Loader is present if you get a new hosting account and you wish to work with some paid web app. If you acquire a shared website hosting account and the instrument is not present, it cannot be added because your entire server PHP environment shall have to be compiled again.

IonCube in Web Hosting

When you purchase a web hosting plan from our company, it'll be set up on our custom-made cloud hosting platform where ionCube Loader is already set up, so you will not have any problems to manage any script application that requires the tool to function appropriately. Furthermore, we offer a few different versions of PHP, which means that in case you switch the version, you will have to enable ionCube again. Our platform remembers the adjustments you make, so in case you move back to the earlier release of PHP which was active for your account, ionCube Loader will already be activated. Both the PHP version and the ionCube tool can be operated through the PHP Configuration part of our Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. Each adjustment that you do takes literally just a click and it'll take effect without delay.

IonCube in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you aquire a semi-dedicated server package from us, you can use any kind of script-driven application which needs ionCube Loader for the reason that the tool is installed on all of the servers that are part of our modern cloud hosting platform. We also support multiple releases of PHP, therefore if you move 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 instance, you can enable ionCube for this particular version with just a click from your Hepsia Control Panel. Our platform will remember your decision, and in case you move back to the earlier version of PHP, the tool will already be active. For more tech-savvy users, we also offer the option to select the PHP version and if ionCube will be active or not for a specific domain name without altering the settings for the whole website hosting account. This is done by placing a php.ini file in a domain folder with a couple of lines of code.
