IonCube Loader is a software instrument, which is needed to run files which are protected with ionCube PHP Encoder. The aforementioned is an application which is used to make PHP code human unreadable, in order to protect it from reverse engineering or unauthorized usage. A large number of script-driven apps, in particular online forums, cms and electronic commerce solutions are protected with ionCube PHP Encoder, so when you obtain a script and you notice that ionCube is one of the web hosting environment requirements, you need to make sure that your web hosting server has the instrument pre-installed. Although it is not that difficult to set it up if you have your own server, it's close to impossible to do that on a shared web hosting server for the reason that the PHP environment should be precompiled and all the clients on the server will be affected.

IonCube in Shared Hosting

If you buy a shared hosting from us, it'll be created on our in-house built cloud hosting platform where ionCube Loader is already set up, so you will not have any problems to run any script app which needs the tool in order to function appropriately. We also provide several different releases of PHP, therefore in case you change the version, you'll have to activate ionCube once again. Our platform remembers the adjustments you make, so if you move back to the earlier release of PHP that was active for your account, ionCube Loader will already be enabled. Both the PHP version as well as the ionCube instrument can be operated through the PHP Configuration area of our Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. Each adjustment that you make takes literally just a click and it will take effect instantly.

IonCube in Semi-dedicated Servers

Due to the fact that all semi-dedicated server accounts are set up on our advanced cluster platform and ionCube Loader is available on it, you'll be able to use any script app which requires this tool to function efficiently. With several clicks in your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel you are able to activate or deactivate ionCube for the PHP version which is currently active for the account. Since we support multiple releases of PHP at the same time, you will have to do this each time you switch to a different release, and if you revert back to a release which you have already used, our system will remember your preference and ionCube Loader will already be active. When you have multiple websites in the same account and they require different releases of PHP, you're able to set up a php.ini file in every single domain folder and with several lines of code you're able to define both the PHP version plus the status of ionCube irrespective of what is selected for the website hosting account altogether.
