A lot of script-driven applications, especially paid content management systems, encode their files so as to make sure that they will not be reverse engineered or tampered with. Most of them use an app known as ionCube PHP Encoder to do this, so when you buy a paid script and you would like to install it in a web hosting account, a tool known as ionCube Loader needs to be present on your server. Without this, you can't install the script or if you somehow manage to do this, it will not operate efficiently since almost all of the script code will be encrypted to a degree where it can't be interpreted. That is why, you should ensure that ionCube Loader is present if you get a new web hosting account and you wish to employ some paid web app. If you obtain a shared hosting account and the instrument is not present, it cannot be added as the entire server PHP environment will have to be compiled again.

IonCube in Shared Hosting

When you get a shared service from us, it'll be created on our custom-built cloud platform where ionCube Loader is already set up, so you will not have any problems to run any script application that requires the instrument in order to run properly. Furthermore, we provide a few different releases of PHP, therefore if you change the version, you will need to activate ionCube again. Our system remembers the changes you make, and in case you go back to the previous version of PHP which was active for your account, ionCube Loader will already be enabled. The PHP version and the ionCube instrument can be managed through the PHP Configuration area of our Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. Every change that you make takes literally just a single click and it takes effect without delay.

IonCube in Semi-dedicated Servers

In case you purchase a semi-dedicated server plan from us, you can employ any script-driven app which needs ionCube Loader since the software tool is available on all servers that are a part of our modern cloud web hosting platform. We also support multiple releases of PHP, and 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 instance, you can enable ionCube for this particular release with only a click in your Hepsia Control Panel. Our platform will remember your choice, so in case you move back to the previous release of PHP, the software instrument will already be active. For more tech-savvy users, we also offer the option to choose the PHP version and if ionCube will be active or not for a specific domain name without altering the settings for the whole web hosting account. This is done by putting a php.ini file inside a domain folder with a few lines of program code.
