Lots of script-driven applications, particularly paid content management systems, encode their files 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 this, so when you purchase a paid script and you would like to install it in a website hosting account, an instrument known as ionCube Loader must be present on your server. Without this, you can't install the script or if you somehow find a way to do that, it won't work properly since most of the script code will be encoded to a degree where it cannot be interpreted. That is why, you need to ensure that ionCube Loader is installed when you get a fresh hosting account and you wish to work with some paid web application. If you purchase a shared website hosting account and the tool is not present, it cannot be added as the whole server PHP environment will have to be compiled again.

IonCube in Shared Web Hosting

IonCube Loader is installed on all the web servers which are a part of our cloud hosting platform, therefore regardless of the Linux shared web hosting package that you select during the signup process, you'll be able to enable it from your Hepsia Control Panel. This process is as simple as right-clicking an On/Off button inside the Advanced section, so even if this is your first hosting account ever, you will not have to do anything complex. The same section will allow you to choose the PHP release 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 if you would like to switch to some other version, you only have to activate ionCube Loader for it as well. Since our platform is flexible, you may even set a different PHP version and another status of ionCube using a php.ini file in each domain folder. In case this is something you'd like to do but you do not have much experience, the 24/7 technical support team shall assist you in no time.

IonCube in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Since all of the semi-dedicated server accounts are created on our advanced cluster platform and ionCube Loader is available on it, you shall be able to use any script app that requires the tool so as to run properly. With just a few clicks in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel you are able to activate or deactivate ionCube for the PHP version that's currently active for the account. As we support several versions of PHP at the same time, you will need to do that every time you switch to a new release, but if you revert back to a version which you have already used, our system will remember your choice and ionCube Loader will already be active. When you have a couple of sites inside the same account and they require different releases of PHP, you'll be able to set up a php.ini file in each and every domain folder and with a couple of lines of program code you'll be able to define both the PHP release and the status of ionCube regardless of what is selected for the hosting account altogether.
