IonCube Loader is an instrument, that is required to run files which are protected with ionCube PHP Encoder. The latter is an application employed to make PHP code human unreadable, as a way to protect it from reverse engineering or illegal usage. A lot of script-driven apps, in particular message boards, content management systems and e-commerce solutions are protected with ionCube PHP Encoder, therefore when you get a script and you find that ionCube is one of the website hosting environment requirements, you should make sure that your hosting server has the tool pre-installed. Although it is not that difficult to set it up if you have your own server, it is close to impossible to do that on a shared web hosting server for the reason that the PHP environment shall have to be precompiled and all the clients on the server shall be affected.

IonCube in Hosting

When you obtain a Linux hosting plan through our company, it will be set up on our in-house built cloud platform where ionCube Loader is already set up, so you will not have any kind of problems to run any script app that requires the tool so as to function properly. In addition, we offer you a few different versions of PHP, which means that if you change the version, you will need to enable ionCube again. Our platform remembers the changes you make, which means that when you go back to the earlier release of PHP which was active for your account, ionCube Loader will already be activated. Both the PHP version and the ionCube instrument can be operated through the PHP Configuration area of our Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. Any adjustment that you do takes literally just a click and it will take effect at once.

IonCube in Semi-dedicated Servers

Each and every semi-dedicated server account that is generated on our cutting-edge cloud web hosting platform comes with ionCube Loader support, and you'll be able to set up any script application which needs the tool. Then use it in order to launch and maintain your online presence. You can enable ionCube through the PHP Configuration area of your Control Panel and it'll take you just a few clicks to do that. The change will take effect without delay, which means that you will be able to proceed and install the needed script in your account. If you decide to change the PHP version that's active for the account, you need to activate ionCube for the new version too. Our in-house built platform also allows you to have a different PHP version for each and every domain or subdomain, which is done with a php.ini file in each domain folder. In the same way, you are able to enable/disable ionCube Loader for each individual site hosted in your semi-dedicated account.
