A lot of script-driven apps, especially paid content management systems, encrypt their files to make sure that they will not be reverse engineered or tampered with. Most of them use an application called ionCube PHP Encoder to do this, so if you get a paid script and you wish to set it up in a web hosting account, a tool called ionCube Loader must be present on your server. Without having it, you won't be able to install the script or if you somehow find a way to do that, it will not function appropriately due to the fact that most of the script code will be encoded to a degree where it can't be interpreted. That's why, you need to make sure that ionCube Loader is present when you get a fresh web hosting account and you wish to take advantage of some paid web app. If you buy a shared hosting account and the instrument is not present, it cannot be added since the entire server PHP environment shall have to be compiled again.

IonCube in Shared Hosting

IonCube Loader comes with all the shared hosting plans that we supply, so if you need it in order to install and run some script app which needs it, you can activate it with a single click from the Advanced area of the Hepsia Control Panel. Due to the fact that you'll be able to change the PHP release which is active for your account from the same section, you need to enable the tool for any new version which you set. When you're more experienced, you're able to use a php.ini file in a domain or subdomain folder and set both the PHP version and the status of ionCube Loader for that particular site only, without affecting the whole account. This way you'll be able to run both new and older script applications for multiple sites in the same account - something that you can't do with numerous other web hosting providers available on the market.

IonCube in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Every single semi-dedicated server account that's created on our outstanding cloud website hosting platform has ionCube Loader support, and you will be able to install any script app that needs the tool. Then employ it to start and maintain your world wide web presence. You can activate ionCube through the PHP Configuration section of your Control Panel and it'll take you no more than a few clicks to do that. Your change will take effect right away, so you're able to proceed and install the needed script in your account. If you choose to switch the PHP version that is active for the account, you need to activate ionCube for the new version too. Our custom platform also allows you to have a different PHP release for each and every domain or subdomain, which is done with a php.ini file in each domain folder. In the same way, you are able to enable/disable ionCube Loader for each individual site hosted in your semi-dedicated account.
