IonCube Loader is a tool, that is required to run files that are encrypted with ionCube PHP Encoder. The aforementioned is an application used to make PHP code human unreadable, to protect it from reverse engineering and / or unauthorized usage. A great number of script-driven applications, in particular online forums, content management systems and electronic commerce solutions are encrypted with ionCube PHP Encoder, which means that when you get a script and you find that ionCube is one of the website hosting environment prerequisites, you have to make sure that your website hosting server has the instrument pre-installed. Though it is not that difficult to install it when you have your own server, it is close to impossible to do that on a shared web hosting server since the PHP environment shall have to be precompiled and all of the clients on the server shall be affected.

IonCube in Website Hosting

If you buy a website hosting plan through us, it will be created on our custom-made cloud platform where ionCube Loader is already present, so you will not have any kind of problems to manage any script app that requires the instrument to function properly. Furthermore, we offer a few different versions of PHP, so if you switch the version, you need to activate ionCube again. Our platform remembers the adjustments you make, so when you go back to the previous release of PHP that was active for your account, ionCube Loader will already be enabled. The PHP version as well as the ionCube instrument can be managed from the PHP Configuration section of our Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. Each change that you do takes literally just a mouse-click and it'll take effect at once.

IonCube in Semi-dedicated Servers

Each and every semi-dedicated server account which is created on our modern cloud website hosting platform features ionCube Loader support, and you can install any script application which requires the software tool. Then employ it to start and maintain your online presence. You can activate ionCube from the PHP Configuration section of the Control Panel and it'll take you only a few clicks to do that. Your change will take effect right away, which means that you're able to proceed and install the needed script in your account. If you choose to switch the PHP version that is active for your account, you'll need to activate ionCube for the new release too. Our custom-built platform also allows you to have a different PHP version for each domain or subdomain, which is done with a php.ini file in every domain folder. In the same way, you will be able to enable/disable ionCube Loader for each website hosted in your semi-dedicated account.
