A lot of script-driven applications, particularly paid cms, encrypt their files in order to ensure that they won't be reverse engineered or tampered with. Most of them use an application named ionCube PHP Encoder to do that, so if you buy a paid script and you wish to set it up in a web hosting account, an instrument called ionCube Loader needs to be present on your server. Without having it, you won't be able to install the script or if you somehow find a way to do that, it will not function appropriately for the reason that almost all of the script code will be encoded to a point where it cannot be interpreted. In this light, you should ensure that ionCube Loader is present if you get a new web hosting account and you want to work with some paid web app. If you buy a shared website hosting account and the instrument is not present, it cannot be added as your entire server PHP environment will have to be compiled again.

IonCube in Cloud Hosting

IonCube Loader is available with all the cloud hosting packages which we provide, so if you need it in order to set up and run some script app that requires it, you can enable it with a click inside the Advanced area of your Hepsia Control Panel. Because you're able to switch the PHP release that's active for your account in the same section, you need to enable the instrument for each new version that you set. When you are more skillful, you are able to employ 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 whole account. This way you can run both new and older script applications for multiple websites within the same account - something that you can't do with lots of other web hosting providers on the market.

IonCube in Semi-dedicated Hosting

In case you buy a semi-dedicated server package from our company, you can take advantage of any kind of script-driven application which requires ionCube Loader since the tool is installed on all the servers which are part of our advanced cloud website hosting platform. Furthermore, we support different versions of PHP, which means that 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 example, you can enable ionCube for that particular release with just a click from your Hepsia Control Panel. Our platform will remember your decision, so if you move back to the previous release of PHP, the instrument will already be active. For more experienced users, we also offer the option to select the PHP version and if ionCube will be active or not for a particular domain name without altering the settings for the whole hosting account. This is done by placing a php.ini file inside a domain folder with several lines of program code.
