Plenty of script-driven apps, particularly paid cms, encrypt their files to ensure that they won't be reverse engineered or tampered with. Many of them use an app called ionCube PHP Encoder to do that, so, in case you buy a paid script and you would like to set it up in a web hosting account, a tool known as ionCube Loader must be present on the server. Without it, you can't install the script or if you somehow find a way to do that, it will not operate properly as most of the script code will be encoded to a degree where it cannot be interpreted. That is why, you need to make sure that ionCube Loader is installed if you get a fresh web hosting account and you want to employ some paid web application. If you get a shared website hosting account and the instrument is not present, it can't be added because your entire server PHP environment will have to be compiled again.

IonCube in Cloud Hosting

IonCube Loader is available on all of the web servers that are part of our cloud web hosting platform, so whatever the Linux cloud hosting package that you pick during the signup process, you'll be able to activate it through your Hepsia Control Panel. This process is as easy as clicking an On/Off button from the Advanced section, so even if this will be your first hosting account ever, you won't have to do anything complex. The very same section will allow you to choose the PHP release for your account (4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4, 5.5), which means that if you want to move to a different version, you only have to activate ionCube Loader for it as well. Because our platform is rather flexible, you can set a different PHP version and a different status of ionCube using a php.ini file in every domain folder. If this is something you would like to do but you do not have much experience, our 24/7 technical support team shall assist you within minutes.

IonCube in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you obtain a semi-dedicated server package from our company, you will be able to take advantage of any script-driven application which needs ionCube Loader due to the fact that the software tool is installed on all the servers which are a part of our revolutionary cloud website hosting platform. We also support various releases of PHP, which means that if you move from PHP 4 to 5.2 or 5.3, for instance, you can enable ionCube for this particular version with only a click from your Hepsia Control Panel. Our platform will remember your choice, so if you switch back to the previous release of PHP, the tool will already be active. For more experienced users, we also provide 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 entire website hosting account. This can be done by putting a php.ini file in a domain folder with several lines of program code.
