A lot of script-driven apps, particularly paid cms, encode their files in order to make sure that they won't be reverse engineered or tampered with. The majority of them use an application called ionCube PHP Encoder to do this, so, in case you get a paid script and you want to set it up in a web hosting account, an instrument called ionCube Loader has to be present on the server. Without this, you cannot install the script or if you somehow manage to do this, it will not operate efficiently due to the fact that most of the script code will be encrypted to a degree where it cannot be interpreted. That is why, you have to ensure that ionCube Loader is present when you get a new website hosting account and you would like to use some paid web application. If you buy a shared web hosting account and the instrument is not present, it can't be added because the entire server PHP environment will have to be compiled again.

IonCube in Hosting

If you buy a Linux hosting package through us, it will be created on our in-house made cloud hosting platform where ionCube Loader is already installed, so you won't have any problems to manage any script application that needs the instrument in order to run properly. Furthermore, we provide several different versions of PHP, which means that in case you change the version, you need to enable ionCube again. Our system remembers the changes you make, which means that when you switch back to the previous release of PHP that was active for your account, ionCube Loader will already be activated. The PHP version as well as the ionCube instrument can be operated through the PHP Configuration part of our Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Any change that you do takes literally just a click and it will take effect immediately.

IonCube in Semi-dedicated Hosting

In case you aquire a semi-dedicated server package from us, you'll be able to employ any script-driven application that requires ionCube Loader due to the fact that the software tool is available on all the servers that are a part of our state-of-the-art cloud web hosting platform. We also support multiple 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 instance, you can enable ionCube for this particular release with only a click from your Hepsia Control Panel. Our system will remember your decision, so if you switch back to the earlier version of PHP, the software tool will already be active. For more experienced users, we also offer the option to pick the PHP version and whether ionCube will be active or not for a specific domain without altering the settings for the whole hosting account. This can be done by putting a php.ini file within a domain folder with a couple of lines of program code.
