Plenty of script-driven apps, especially paid content management systems, encrypt their files so as to make sure that they will not be reverse engineered or tampered with. Most of them use an application known as ionCube PHP Encoder to do this, so if you buy a paid script and you'd like to set it up in a hosting account, a tool called ionCube Loader needs to be present on your server. Without it, you cannot install the script or in case you somehow find a way to do this, it won't operate properly because almost all of the script code will be encrypted to a degree where it cannot be interpreted. In this light, you have to ensure that ionCube Loader is installed if you get a fresh hosting account and you wish to employ some paid web app. If you purchase a shared website hosting account and the tool is not present, it cannot be added since the whole server PHP environment shall have to be compiled again.

IonCube in Shared Website Hosting

If you buy a Linux shared website hosting through our company, it will be set up on our in-house made cloud platform where ionCube Loader is already installed, so you will not have any problems to run any script application which needs the tool so as to run appropriately. Furthermore, we supply a few different versions of PHP, which means that if you change the version, you'll need to enable ionCube again. Our platform remembers the changes you make, and when you go back to the previous release of PHP which was active for your account, ionCube Loader will already be activated. The PHP version and the ionCube instrument can be operated through the PHP Configuration part of our Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Any adjustment that you make takes literally just a single click and it will take effect instantly.

IonCube in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you buy a semi-dedicated server plan 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 of the servers that are a part of our modern cloud web hosting platform. We also support various releases of PHP, so 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 this particular version with only a click from your Hepsia Control Panel. Our system will remember your decision, so if you move back to the earlier release of PHP, the software tool will already be active. For more experienced users, we also provide the option to pick the PHP version and if ionCube will be active or not for a particular domain without altering the settings for the entire hosting account. This can be done by placing a php.ini file in a domain folder with a few lines of code.
