IonCube Loader is a software instrument, that is needed to run files which are encrypted with ionCube PHP Encoder. The aforementioned is an application used to make PHP code human unreadable, in order to protect it from reverse engineering or not authorized usage. A lot of script-driven apps, in particular message boards, content management systems and e-commerce solutions are encoded with ionCube PHP Encoder, so when you obtain a script and you find that ionCube is among the website hosting environment requirements, you should ensure that your web hosting server has the instrument pre-installed. Although it's 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 because the PHP environment will have to be precompiled and all of the clients on the server shall be affected.

IonCube in Cloud Hosting

If you get a Linux cloud hosting from us, it will be created on our custom-made cloud hosting platform where ionCube Loader is already present, so you will not have any problems to run any script app which requires the tool so as to function appropriately. We also provide several different versions of PHP, which means that in case you change the version, you'll need to activate ionCube again. Our platform remembers the changes you make, and in case you move back to the earlier version of PHP which was active for your account, ionCube Loader will already be enabled. Both the PHP version as well as the ionCube tool can be operated from the PHP Configuration area of our Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. Each adjustment that you do takes literally just a single click and it takes effect without delay.

IonCube in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Each semi-dedicated server account that is generated on our outstanding cloud website hosting platform has ionCube Loader support, so you'll be able to set up any script application that requires the tool. Then employ it to start and maintain your online presence. You can enable ionCube from the PHP Configuration area of your Control Panel and it will take you only a couple of clicks to do that. Your change will take effect instantly, which means that you'll be able to proceed and set up the needed script inside your account. If you'd like to change the PHP version that's active for the account, you'll have to activate ionCube for the new version too. Our in-house made platform also allows you to have a different PHP release for each domain or subdomain, that is done with a php.ini file in every domain folder. In the same way, you will be able to enable/disable ionCube Loader for each individual site hosted in your semi-dedicated account.
