A lot of script-driven apps, particularly paid content management systems, encrypt their files in order to ensure that they will not be reverse engineered or tampered with. Most of them use an application known as ionCube PHP Encoder to do that, so when you obtain a paid script and you wish to install it in a web hosting account, a software tool known as ionCube Loader must be present on the server. Without having it, you cannot install the script or in case you somehow manage to do this, it won't function effectively as most of the script code will be encoded to a degree where it can't be interpreted. In this light, you have to make sure that ionCube Loader is installed when you get a new hosting account and you would like to take advantage of some paid web application. If you obtain a shared web hosting account and the instrument is not present, it cannot be added because your entire server PHP environment shall have to be compiled again.

IonCube in Shared Website Hosting

IonCube Loader is supplied with each Linux shared website hosting that we provide and you will be able to enable it at any time with just a few clicks, so you can take advantage of script apps that require it. You will be able to do this through the PHP Configuration section of your Hepsia Control Panel and all it will take to activate or disable ionCube is to click a button. The change takes effect in a minute, which means that you will be able to go ahead and install the application that you need right away. The very same section will allow you to switch the PHP version that's active for your account, as we support a variety of versions on our leading-edge cloud platform. If you move to a version that you have never used to date, you will have to activate ionCube Loader again. Experienced users will be able to use a php.ini file in a specific domain folder in order to set a PHP release different from the one for the whole account or enable/disable ionCube Loader.

IonCube in Semi-dedicated Hosting

IonCube Loader is available with all the Linux semi-dedicated hosting that we offer, so you won't experience any problems if you would like to set up and use some script application which requires the software tool in order to operate properly. Enabling it is as simple as clicking a single button inside the Advanced part of the Hepsia Control Panel that comes with all of the semi-dedicated accounts and the change shall take effect in less than a minute, so you will be able to proceed with the application set up without delay. As we employ an avant-garde in-house built platform and we support multiple versions of PHP simultaneously, you will need to enable ionCube any time you move to a version that you have not used before. In addition, you'll have the option to activate ionCube loader and even to set a PHP release different from the one in the account as a whole by generating a php.ini file in an individual domain or subdomain folder and adding a couple of lines of program code within it.
