A lot of script-driven applications, particularly paid cms, encrypt their files to ensure that they won't be reverse engineered or tampered with. Many of them use an application named ionCube PHP Encoder to do this, so when you acquire a paid script and you intend to set it up in a website hosting account, a software tool known as ionCube Loader has to be present on the server. Without having it, you can't install the script or if you somehow manage to do that, it won't work properly for the reason that almost all of the script code will be encrypted to a point where it can't be interpreted. That's why, you have to make sure that ionCube Loader is present if you get a new web hosting account and you would like to use some paid web application. If you acquire a shared web hosting account and the tool is not present, it can't be added as the whole server PHP environment shall have to be compiled again.

IonCube in Shared Hosting

If you obtain a Linux shared hosting through us, it will be set up on our in-house made cloud platform where ionCube Loader is already installed, so you will not have any problems to run any script app which requires the instrument so as to function appropriately. We also provide several different versions of PHP, so in case you switch the version, you'll need to activate ionCube again. Our platform remembers the adjustments you make, so when you go back to the earlier release of PHP that was active for your account, ionCube Loader will already be activated. Both the PHP version as well as the ionCube instrument can be managed through the PHP Configuration section of our Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. Every change that you do takes literally just a single click and it takes effect instantly.

IonCube in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you aquire a semi-dedicated server plan from our company, you can use any script-driven application that needs ionCube Loader due to the fact that the tool is installed on all the servers which are a part of our revolutionary cloud hosting platform. We also support several versions of PHP, which means that 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 example, you can activate ionCube for this particular release with just a click from your Hepsia Control Panel. Our platform will remember your decision, so if you move back to the previous version of PHP, the software tool will already be active. For more tech-savvy users, we also provide the option to choose the PHP version and if ionCube will be active or not for a specific domain without altering the settings for the entire hosting account. This can be done by placing a php.ini file inside a domain folder with several lines of code.
