Plenty of script-driven applications, especially 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 known as ionCube PHP Encoder to do this, so when you obtain a paid script and you want to install it in a hosting account, an instrument called ionCube Loader has to be present on the server. Without this, you can't install the script or if you somehow manage to do this, it won't function effectively for the reason that almost all of the script code will be encrypted to a point where it can't be interpreted. That's why, you should make sure that ionCube Loader is present if you get a fresh web hosting account and you want to employ some paid web app. If you buy a shared hosting account and the tool is not present, it cannot be added because your entire server PHP environment will have to be compiled again.

IonCube in Cloud Hosting

IonCube Loader is a part of all of the web servers that are part of our cloud web hosting platform, so regardless of the Linux cloud hosting that you pick during the signup process, you will be able to enable it from the Hepsia Control Panel. The process is as easy as right-clicking an On/Off button in the Advanced section, so even if this is your first website hosting account ever, you will not have to do anything complex. The exact same section allows you to select the PHP version for your account (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), and in case you choose to move to a different version, you only have to activate ionCube Loader for it too. Because our platform is really flexible, you can even set a different PHP version and another status of ionCube by using a php.ini file in every domain folder. In case this is something you'd like to do but you don't have much experience, the 24/7 support team shall help you quickly.

IonCube in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Each semi-dedicated server account that's generated on our modern cloud website hosting platform has ionCube Loader support, and you will be able to install any kind of script application which needs the software tool. Then use it to launch and maintain your web presence. You can enable ionCube from the PHP Configuration area of the Control Panel and it will take you no more than a couple of clicks to do this. The change will take effect immediately, so you're able to proceed and set up the needed script in your account. If you decide to change the PHP version which is active for your account, you will have to enable ionCube for the new version as well. Our custom platform also allows you to have a different PHP release for each and every domain or subdomain, that is done with a php.ini file in every domain folder. In the same way, you will be able to enable/disable ionCube Loader for each individual website hosted in your semi-dedicated account.
