IonCube Loader is an instrument, that is required to run files that are encrypted with ionCube PHP Encoder. The aforementioned is an application designed to make PHP code human unreadable, as a way to protect it from reverse engineering or unauthorized usage. Various script-driven applications, in particular message boards, content management systems and electronic commerce solutions are encrypted with ionCube PHP Encoder, so if you buy a script and you notice that ionCube is among the website hosting environment prerequisites, you have to make sure that your web hosting server has the tool pre-installed. Although it's not that difficult to set it up when you have your own server, it's almost impossible to do that on a shared hosting server due to the fact that the PHP environment should be precompiled and all clients on the server will be affected.

IonCube in Hosting

When you obtain a Linux hosting service from our company, it'll be set up on our custom-made cloud platform where ionCube Loader is already installed, so you will not have any problems to run any script application which requires the tool so as to run appropriately. We also provide several different releases of PHP, therefore if you change the version, you need to enable ionCube again. Our system remembers the changes you make, and when you switch back to the earlier version of PHP which was active for your account, ionCube Loader will already be enabled. Both the PHP version and the ionCube instrument can be managed through the PHP Configuration part of our Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. Each adjustment that you make takes literally just a mouse-click and it'll take effect instantly.

IonCube in Semi-dedicated Servers

Since 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 application which needs the tool so as to work effectively. With just a few clicks in your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel you are able to activate or deactivate ionCube for the PHP version that is currently active for the account. As we support a couple of versions of PHP simultaneously, you will need to do this each time you switch to a different version, but if you revert back to a release which you've already used, our system will remember your preference and ionCube Loader will already be activated. If you have multiple sites inside the same account and they require different versions of PHP, you will be able to create a php.ini file in each and every domain folder and with a couple of lines of code you are able to define both the PHP version plus the status of ionCube no matter what is selected for the website hosting account altogether.
