IonCube Loader is a software instrument, that is needed to run files that are protected with ionCube PHP Encoder. The aforementioned is an app used to make PHP code human unreadable, as a way to protect it from reverse engineering and / or unauthorized use. A great number of script-driven applications, especially community forums, cms and e-commerce solutions are protected with ionCube PHP Encoder, so when you obtain a script and you notice that ionCube is among the website hosting environment prerequisites, you should make sure that your web hosting server has the tool pre-installed. Though it is not that difficult to set it up if you have your own server, it's almost impossible to do that on a shared web hosting server due to the fact that the PHP environment will have to be precompiled and all clients on the server will be affected.

IonCube in Shared Website Hosting

When you buy a shared website hosting plan from our company, it'll be created on our in-house made cloud platform where ionCube Loader is already set up, so you will not have any kind of problems to run any script application which needs the tool in order to run properly. Furthermore, we provide several different versions of PHP, so in case you switch the version, you will have to activate ionCube again. Our system remembers the adjustments you make, which means that in case you go back to the previous 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 website hosting Control Panel. Each adjustment that you make takes literally just a mouse-click and it will take effect right away.

IonCube in Semi-dedicated Servers

Each semi-dedicated server account that's set up on our cutting-edge cloud web hosting platform has ionCube Loader support, so you can install any script application which needs the tool. Then use it in order to start and maintain your world wide web presence. You can enable ionCube through the PHP Configuration area of the Control Panel and it'll take you only a few clicks to do this. The change will take effect instantly, so you're able to go ahead and install the necessary script in your account. If you decide to change the PHP version that is active for the account, you will need to enable 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 each domain folder. In the same way, you're able to enable/disable ionCube Loader for each individual website hosted in your semi-dedicated account.
