Plenty of script-driven applications, particularly paid cms, encrypt their files so as to ensure that they won't be reverse engineered or tampered with. Many of them use an app known as ionCube PHP Encoder to do that, so when you buy a paid script and you'd like to set it up in a hosting account, a software instrument known as ionCube Loader needs to be present on the server. Without having it, you cannot install the script or in case you somehow manage to do that, it won't function appropriately because most of the script code will be encoded to a degree where it cannot be interpreted. That's why, you need to make sure that ionCube Loader is present if you get a fresh website hosting account and you want to take advantage of some paid web application. If you get a shared website hosting account and the tool is not present, it cannot be added since the entire server PHP environment will have to be compiled again.

IonCube in Hosting

IonCube Loader is available on all web servers which are part of our cloud website hosting platform, which means that whatever the Linux hosting that you pick during the signup process, you'll be able to activate it through your Hepsia Control Panel. The process is as easy as right-clicking an On/Off button from the Advanced section, so even if this is your first website hosting account ever, you will not have to do anything complex. The 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), so in case you would like to move to another version, you only need to activate ionCube Loader for it too. Since our platform is very flexible, you may even set some other PHP version and another status of ionCube using a php.ini file in every domain folder. If this is something you would like to do but you don't have much experience, our 24/7 tech support team will be able to assist you in no time.

IonCube in Semi-dedicated Hosting

In case you aquire a semi-dedicated server package from us, you'll be able to employ any kind of script-driven application which requires ionCube Loader for the reason that the software tool comes with all of the servers that are part of our modern cloud website hosting platform. In addition, we support different versions of PHP, so if you switch 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 activate ionCube for this particular release with just a click from your Hepsia Control Panel. Our system will remember your decision, so if you move back to the previous release of PHP, the software instrument will already be active. For more tech-savvy users, we also provide the option to select the PHP version and whether ionCube will be active or not for a specific domain name without altering the settings for the entire hosting account. This is done by putting a php.ini file inside a domain folder with a couple of lines of program code.
