A lot of script-driven applications, particularly paid cms, encode their files to make sure that they won't be reverse engineered or tampered with. The majority of them use an app called ionCube PHP Encoder to do that, so, in case you acquire 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 this, you won't be able to install the script or if you somehow find a way to do that, it won't work appropriately as most of the script code will be encoded to a degree where it cannot be interpreted. That's why, you have to make sure that ionCube Loader is set up if you get a fresh hosting account and you would like to use some paid web application. If you buy a shared hosting account and the tool is not present, it cannot be added since the whole server PHP environment shall have to be compiled again.

IonCube in Web Hosting

If you purchase a web hosting plan through us, it will be set up on our tailor-made cloud hosting platform where ionCube Loader is already present, so you won't have any kind of problems to run any script application which requires the instrument so as to run properly. In addition, we supply a few different versions of PHP, which means that if you switch the version, you will have to enable ionCube again. Our system remembers the changes you make, which means that if you move back to the earlier release of PHP which was active for your account, ionCube Loader will already be turned on. The PHP version and the ionCube tool can be managed from the PHP Configuration section of our Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Every adjustment that you do takes literally just a click and it takes effect without delay.

IonCube in Semi-dedicated Servers

IonCube Loader is available with all the semi-dedicated hosting plans that we supply, and you won't experience any problems in case you would like to install and work with some script app that requires the instrument to operate properly. Enabling it is as simple as clicking a button inside the Advanced section of the Hepsia Control Panel which comes with all of the semi-dedicated accounts and the change shall take effect in a minute, therefore you will be able to proceed with the application installation without delay. Since we use a cutting-edge in-house made platform and we support a number of versions of PHP at the same time, you'll have to enable ionCube any time you switch to a version that you have not used before. In addition, you'll have the option to activate ionCube loader or even to set a PHP version different from the one in the account as a whole by creating a php.ini file in an individual domain or subdomain folder and adding several lines of code in it.
