IonCube Loader is an instrument, that is necessary to run files which are encoded with ionCube PHP Encoder. The aforementioned is an app that is used to make PHP code human unreadable, to protect it from reverse engineering and illegal use. Plenty of script-driven applications, especially discussion forums, content management systems and electronic commerce solutions are encoded with ionCube PHP Encoder, so when you buy 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 tool pre-installed. Although it is not that difficult to set it up when you have your own server, it is close to impossible to do that on a shared hosting server as the PHP environment shall have to be precompiled and all of the clients on the server will be affected.

IonCube in Cloud Hosting

When you aquire a cloud hosting from us, it will be set up on our custom-made cloud platform where ionCube Loader is already installed, so you won't have any kind of problems to manage any script app which needs the instrument to function properly. Furthermore, we offer you a few different versions of PHP, which means that in case you change the version, you will have to activate ionCube again. Our platform remembers the adjustments you make, and if you go back to the earlier version of PHP that was active for your account, ionCube Loader will already be turned on. Both the PHP version as well as the ionCube tool can be managed from the PHP Configuration area of our Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. Each change that you make takes literally just a click and it takes effect immediately.

IonCube in Semi-dedicated Servers

Because all the semi-dedicated server accounts are set up on our advanced cluster platform and ionCube Loader is available on it, you will be able to use any script application that needs this software tool so as to function efficiently. With a couple of clicks in the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel you'll be able to activate or deactivate ionCube for the PHP version that is currently active for your account. Since we support a couple of versions of PHP simultaneously, you'll need to do that each and every time you switch to a new release, but when you revert back to a version which you have already used, our system will remember your preference and ionCube Loader will already be active. When you have a couple of websites in the same account and they require different releases of PHP, you are able to set up a php.ini file in each domain folder and with a couple of lines of code you will be able to define both the PHP release plus the status of ionCube regardless of what is selected for the hosting account altogether.
