IonCube Loader is an instrument, which is required to run files which are protected with ionCube PHP Encoder. The aforementioned is an app designed to make PHP code human unreadable, as a way to protect it from reverse engineering or unauthorized usage. Plenty of script-driven apps, especially forums, content management systems and e-commerce solutions are encrypted with ionCube PHP Encoder, so if you get a script and you notice that ionCube is on the list of web hosting environment requirements, you should ensure that your hosting server has the tool pre-installed. Though it's not that hard to install it if you have your own server, it's almost impossible to do that on a shared hosting server for the reason that the PHP environment should be precompiled and all of the clients on the server will be affected.

IonCube in Shared Web Hosting

When you purchase a shared web hosting from our company, it'll be set up on our custom-made cloud hosting platform where ionCube Loader is already set up, so you won't have any kind of problems to manage any script app which needs the tool in order to function appropriately. We also supply a few different versions of PHP, therefore in case you switch the version, you'll have to enable ionCube again. Our system remembers the adjustments you make, and in case you go back to the earlier release of PHP that was active for your account, ionCube Loader will already be activated. The PHP version as well as the ionCube instrument can be operated from the PHP Configuration part of our Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Any change that you do takes literally just a mouse-click and it'll take effect instantly.

IonCube in Semi-dedicated Hosting

In case you buy a semi-dedicated server package from our company, you will be able to take advantage of any script-driven application that requires ionCube Loader since the tool is available on all of the servers that are a part of our revolutionary cloud website hosting platform. Furthermore, we support multiple releases of PHP, so if you move from PHP 4 to 5.2 or 5.3, for example, you can enable ionCube for this particular version with only a click from your Hepsia Control Panel. Our system will remember your choice, and in case you switch back to the earlier release of PHP, the instrument will already be active. For more experienced users, we also provide the option to pick the PHP version and if ionCube will be active or not for a specific domain name without altering the settings for the whole web hosting account. This can be done by placing a php.ini file inside a domain folder with several lines of code.
