IonCube Loader is a software instrument, that's required to run files that are encoded with ionCube PHP Encoder. The latter is an app that is used to make PHP code human unreadable, to protect it from reverse engineering and / or illegal use. Various script-driven applications, particularly forums, content management systems and electronic commerce solutions are protected with ionCube PHP Encoder, which means that if you purchase a script and you find that ionCube is among the website hosting environment requirements, you need to ensure that your hosting server has the instrument pre-installed. Though it's not that difficult to install it if you have your own server, it is close to impossible to do that on a shared web hosting server because the PHP environment will have to be precompiled and all the clients on the server will be affected.

IonCube in Website Hosting

If you aquire a website hosting from us, it'll be created on our custom-made cloud platform where ionCube Loader is already set up, so you won't have any kind of problems to run any script application which requires the tool so as to function appropriately. We also supply several different releases of PHP, which means that in case you change the version, you will need to activate ionCube once again. Our platform remembers the adjustments you make, which means that if you go back to the previous version of PHP that was active for your account, ionCube Loader will already be enabled. The PHP version and the ionCube instrument can be managed from the PHP Configuration part of our Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Each change that you do takes literally just a single click and it'll take effect immediately.

IonCube in Semi-dedicated Servers

Due to the fact that all the semi-dedicated server accounts are set up on our advanced cluster platform and ionCube Loader is available on it, you shall be able to use any script application that needs this tool so as to work efficiently. With a couple of clicks in your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel you'll be able to activate or deactivate ionCube for the PHP version which is currently active for your account. Since we support a couple of versions of PHP concurrently, you'll have to do this each and every time you switch to a new version, and when you revert back to a version which you've already used, our system will remember your preference and ionCube Loader will already be active. If you have several sites in the same account and they require different versions of PHP, you will be able to create a php.ini file in each domain folder and with a couple of lines of code you'll be able to define both the PHP release plus the status of ionCube no matter what is selected for the hosting account as a whole.
