Lots of script-driven apps, particularly paid content management systems, encode their files in order 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 if you purchase a paid script and you want to set it up in a website hosting account, an instrument called ionCube Loader has to be present on your server. Without having it, you will not be able to install the script or if you somehow manage to do this, it won't operate appropriately due to the fact that most of the script code will be encoded to a point where it can't be interpreted. That is why, you need to make sure that ionCube Loader is present when you get a fresh hosting account and you wish to work with some paid web application. If you buy a shared web hosting account and the instrument is not present, it cannot be added because the whole server PHP environment shall have to be compiled again.

IonCube in Cloud Website Hosting

When you buy a cloud website hosting through us, it'll be created on our in-house built cloud hosting platform where ionCube Loader is already installed, so you won't have any kind of problems to run any script app which requires the tool so as to function appropriately. We also supply a few different releases of PHP, so in case you switch the version, you need to activate ionCube again. Our platform remembers the adjustments you make, which means that in case you switch back to the earlier release of PHP which was active for your account, ionCube Loader will already be activated. The PHP version and the ionCube tool can be managed through the PHP Configuration part of our Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Each adjustment that you do takes literally just a single click and it will take effect right away.

IonCube in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you buy a semi-dedicated server package from us, you'll be able to take advantage of any script-driven application which needs ionCube Loader because the tool is installed on all the servers that are part of our advanced cloud web hosting platform. We also support multiple releases 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 example, you can activate ionCube for this particular release with just a click from your Hepsia Control Panel. Our platform will remember your choice, and if you switch back to the previous release of PHP, the instrument will already be active. For more tech-savvy users, we also provide the option to select the PHP version and if ionCube will be active or not for a specific domain without altering the settings for the whole web hosting account. This is done by putting a php.ini file within a domain folder with a couple of lines of program code.
