Plenty of script-driven apps, 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 application known as ionCube PHP Encoder to do that, so, in case you obtain a paid script and you wish to set it up in a hosting account, a software instrument known as ionCube Loader needs to be present on the server. Without this, you won't be able to install the script or in case you somehow manage to do this, it will not function appropriately due to the fact that most of the script code will be encoded to a point where it can't be interpreted. In this light, you have to make sure that ionCube Loader is installed if you get a new website hosting account and you'd like to employ some paid web app. If you obtain a shared website hosting account and the tool is not present, it can't be added since your entire server PHP environment will have to be compiled again.

IonCube in Cloud Web Hosting

When you get a cloud web hosting plan through us, it'll be created on our custom-built cloud hosting platform where ionCube Loader is already set up, so you will not have any kind of problems to manage any script application which needs the instrument in order to run properly. Furthermore, we offer several different versions of PHP, so if you switch the version, you will have to enable ionCube once again. Our system remembers the adjustments you make, and when you move back to the earlier release of PHP that was active for your account, ionCube Loader will already be enabled. The PHP version and the ionCube tool can be operated from the PHP Configuration section of our Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. Each adjustment that you make takes literally just a mouse-click and it'll take effect immediately.

IonCube in Semi-dedicated Servers

In case you purchase a semi-dedicated server plan from our company, you can take advantage of any script-driven application which requires ionCube Loader because the software tool is available on all servers which are part of our modern cloud web hosting platform. In addition, we support various releases of PHP, so 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 activate ionCube for that particular version with only a click in your Hepsia Control Panel. Our system will remember your decision, so if you move back to the previous version of PHP, the software tool will already be active. For more experienced users, we also offer the option to select the PHP version and whether ionCube will be active or not for a particular domain name without altering the settings for the entire hosting account. This can be done by putting a php.ini file within a domain folder with a few lines of code.
