IonCube Loader is an instrument, which is necessary to run files that are protected with ionCube PHP Encoder. The aforementioned is an app employed to make PHP code human unreadable, to protect it from reverse engineering and / or illegal use. A great number of script-driven apps, in particular online forums, cms and electronic commerce solutions are encrypted with ionCube PHP Encoder, therefore if you buy a script and you find that ionCube is one of the website hosting environment requirements, you should ensure that your hosting server has the instrument pre-installed. Although it's not that difficult to install it when you have your own server, it's almost impossible to do that on a shared web hosting server since the PHP environment will have to be precompiled and all the clients on the server shall be affected.

IonCube in Shared Web Hosting

When you obtain a Linux shared web hosting package through us, it will be set up on our custom cloud hosting platform where ionCube Loader is already set up, so you won't have any kind of problems to manage any script app that requires the tool so as to run properly. Furthermore, we provide a few different releases of PHP, so in case you change the version, you'll need to enable ionCube again. Our system remembers the changes you make, which means that in case you go back to the previous release of PHP that was active for your account, ionCube Loader will already be activated. Both the PHP version as well as the ionCube tool can be managed through the PHP Configuration area of our Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Each change that you make takes literally just a single click and it'll take effect immediately.

IonCube in Semi-dedicated Hosting

In case you aquire a semi-dedicated server plan from our company, you'll be able to employ any kind of script-driven application which requires ionCube Loader due to the fact that the software tool is installed on all the servers which are part of our cutting-edge cloud website hosting platform. We also support several versions of PHP, which means that if you switch from PHP 4 to 5.2 or 5.3, for instance, you can enable ionCube for this particular release with only a click from your Hepsia Control Panel. Our platform will remember your decision, and in case you move back to the earlier release of PHP, the software tool will already be active. For more tech-savvy users, we also offer the option to pick the PHP version and whether ionCube will be active or not for a specific domain without altering the settings for the whole web hosting account. This can be done by putting a php.ini file inside a domain folder with several lines of code.
