A lot of script-driven apps, especially paid cms, encrypt their files to ensure that they won't be reverse engineered or tampered with. The majority of them use an app known as ionCube PHP Encoder to do that, so when you buy a paid script and you want to set it up in a hosting account, a tool called ionCube Loader needs to be present on the server. Without having it, you will not be able to install the script or if you somehow manage to do this, it won't operate properly because almost all 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 new website hosting account and you wish to employ some paid web app. If you buy a shared website hosting account and the tool is not present, it can't be added because your entire server PHP environment will have to be compiled again.
IonCube in Cloud Web Hosting
IonCube Loader is installed on all of the web servers that are a part of our cloud website hosting platform, so regardless of the cloud web hosting that you get during the signup process, you'll be able to enable it through the Hepsia Control Panel. This process is as easy as clicking an On/Off button from the Advanced section, so even if this is your first web hosting account ever, you won't have to do anything complicated. The exact same section will allow you to pick the PHP version 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), and if you choose to move to another version, you just have to activate ionCube Loader for it too. Due to the fact that our platform is rather flexible, you may even set some other PHP version and a different status of ionCube using a php.ini file in every domain folder. If this is something you'd like to do but you don't have much experience, our 24/7 tech support team shall assist you within minutes.
IonCube in Semi-dedicated Servers
Every single semi-dedicated server account that is created on our cutting-edge cloud web hosting platform comes with ionCube Loader support, and you'll be able to set up any kind of script app that needs the tool. Then employ it in order to start and maintain your web presence. You can enable ionCube from the PHP Configuration area of the Control Panel and it will take you no more than a few clicks to do this. The change takes effect right away, which means that you're able to go ahead and set up the needed script in your account. If you'd like to switch the PHP version that's active for the account, you will need to activate ionCube for the new release too. Our in-house made platform also allows you to have a different PHP version for each and every domain or subdomain, which is done with a php.ini file in every domain folder. In the same way, you can enable/disable ionCube Loader for each individual website hosted in your semi-dedicated account.
