IonCube Loader is a software tool, which is required to run files which are protected with ionCube PHP Encoder. The aforementioned is an application which is used to make PHP code human unreadable, in order to protect it from reverse engineering and / or illegal use. A lot of script-driven applications, especially community forums, content management systems and electronic commerce solutions are protected with ionCube PHP Encoder, so if you obtain a script and you find that ionCube is on the list of website hosting environment requirements, you should ensure that your web hosting server has the tool pre-installed. Although it is not that hard to set it up when you have your own server, it's close to impossible to do that on a shared hosting server since the PHP environment shall have to be precompiled and all of the clients on the server will be affected.

IonCube in Shared Hosting

If you obtain a shared hosting from our company, it will be set up on our tailor-made cloud hosting platform where ionCube Loader is already set up, so you won't have any problems to manage any script application that needs the instrument in order to run properly. We also supply a few different versions of PHP, which means that in case you switch the version, you will have to enable ionCube once again. Our system remembers the changes you make, and in case you move back to the previous release of PHP which was active for your account, ionCube Loader will already be activated. The PHP version as well as the ionCube tool can be managed from the PHP Configuration section of our Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. Each adjustment that you do takes literally just a single click and it takes effect instantly.

IonCube in Semi-dedicated Servers

Every single semi-dedicated server account that is created on our cutting-edge cloud website hosting platform includes ionCube Loader support, and you will be able to set up any kind of script application that needs the software tool. Then use it in order to launch and maintain your internet presence. You can enable ionCube from the PHP Configuration area of the Control Panel and it will take you no more than a couple of clicks to do that. The change takes effect without delay, so you're able to go ahead and set up the necessary script inside your account. If you choose to change the PHP version that's active for the account, you need to enable ionCube for the new release too. Our tailor-made platform also allows you to have a different PHP release for each and every domain or subdomain, that is done with a php.ini file in every domain folder. In the same way, you are able to enable/disable ionCube Loader for each website hosted in your semi-dedicated account.
