IonCube Loader is a tool, that's needed to run files which are protected with ionCube PHP Encoder. The aforementioned is an app that is used to make PHP code human unreadable, as a way to protect it from reverse engineering and unauthorized use. A large number of script-driven apps, especially online forums, content management systems and e-commerce solutions are protected with ionCube PHP Encoder, which means that when you obtain a script and you notice that ionCube is one of the web hosting environment prerequisites, you should make sure that your website hosting server has the tool pre-installed. While it is not that difficult to set it up if you have your own server, it is almost impossible to do that on a shared web hosting server because the PHP environment shall have to be precompiled and all of the clients on the server will be affected.

IonCube in Shared Hosting

When you aquire a shared hosting from us, it will be set up on our in-house built cloud hosting platform where ionCube Loader is already installed, so you won't have any problems to run any script app which needs the instrument in order to run appropriately. We also offer you several different versions of PHP, so in case you switch the version, you'll have to activate ionCube again. Our system remembers the changes you make, which means that if you go back to the earlier release of PHP which was active for your account, ionCube Loader will already be activated. The PHP version as well as the ionCube instrument can be operated through the PHP Configuration area of our Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. Every adjustment that you make takes literally just a mouse-click and it takes effect at once.

IonCube in Semi-dedicated Servers

Due to the fact that all of the semi-dedicated server accounts are created on our advanced cluster platform and ionCube Loader is available on it, you will be able to use any script application that requires the software tool so as to run efficiently. With several clicks in your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel you'll be able to activate or deactivate ionCube for the PHP version that's currently active for the account. As we support several versions of PHP concurrently, you'll need to do this each and every time you switch to a new version, and when you revert back to a version that you've already used, our system will remember your preference and ionCube Loader will already be activated. When you have multiple websites inside the same account and they require different versions of PHP, you can create a php.ini file in each domain folder and with a couple of 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.
