IonCube Loader is a software tool, which is needed to run files which are protected with ionCube PHP Encoder. The aforementioned is an application employed to make PHP code human unreadable, to protect it from reverse engineering or not authorized usage. Numerous script-driven applications, particularly discussion forums, content management systems and e-commerce solutions are encrypted with ionCube PHP Encoder, so if you obtain a script and you notice that ionCube is among the hosting environment prerequisites, you need to ensure that your hosting server has the instrument pre-installed. Although it is not that hard to set it up if you have your own server, it is almost impossible to do that on a shared hosting server since the PHP environment will have to be precompiled and all clients on the server shall be affected.

IonCube in Shared Hosting

If you get a shared hosting package from us, it'll be created on our custom-made cloud platform where ionCube Loader is already set up, so you will not have any problems to manage any script application that requires the tool in order to run properly. In addition, we offer you several different versions of PHP, which means that if you switch the version, you'll have to enable ionCube once again. Our system remembers the changes you make, and in case you move back to the previous release of PHP which was active for your account, ionCube Loader will already be turned on. Both the PHP version as well as the ionCube instrument can be operated from the PHP Configuration area of our Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. Any adjustment that you make takes literally just a single click and it will take effect at once.

IonCube in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Since all of the semi-dedicated server accounts are created on our advanced cluster platform and ionCube Loader is available on it, you'll be able to use any script app that requires this tool in order to work efficiently. With several clicks in the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel you are able to activate or deactivate ionCube for the PHP version that's currently active for the account. As we support a couple of versions of PHP at the same time, you'll have to do that each time you move to a different version, but when you revert back to a version that you have already used, our system will remember your choice and ionCube Loader will already be activated. When you have several sites in the same account and they require different releases of PHP, you'll be able to set up a php.ini file in each and every domain folder and with several lines of program code you are able to define both the PHP release plus the status of ionCube regardless of what is selected for the hosting account altogether.
