IonCube Loader is an instrument, which is necessary to run files which are protected with ionCube PHP Encoder. The aforementioned is an app that is used to make PHP code human unreadable, in order to protect it from reverse engineering and / or illegal usage. A lot of script-driven apps, in particular forums, content management systems and e-commerce solutions are protected with ionCube PHP Encoder, therefore when you obtain a script and you find that ionCube is on the list of website hosting environment requirements, you have to ensure that your web hosting server has the tool pre-installed. Though it's not that difficult to install it when you have your own server, it is almost impossible to do that on a shared hosting server since the PHP environment should be precompiled and all of the clients on the server shall be affected.

IonCube in Shared Web Hosting

If you aquire a shared web hosting service through our company, it'll be set up on our in-house made cloud platform where ionCube Loader is already installed, so you will not have any problems to run any script app which needs the tool so as to function properly. We also offer you several different versions of PHP, which means that if you switch the version, you'll have to activate ionCube again. Our system remembers the adjustments you make, so if you switch back to the earlier version of PHP that was active for your account, ionCube Loader will already be enabled. The PHP version as well as the ionCube instrument can be managed from the PHP Configuration area of our Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. Any change that you do takes literally just a click and it takes effect at once.

IonCube in Semi-dedicated Servers

Each semi-dedicated server account that's set up on our outstanding cloud website hosting platform comes with ionCube Loader support, so you'll be able to set up any script application which needs the software tool. Then use it in order to launch and maintain your online presence. You can activate ionCube from the PHP Configuration area of the Control Panel and it'll take you no more than a few clicks to do this. Your change will take effect without delay, which means that you can proceed and set up the needed script in your account. If you'd like to change the PHP version that's active for your account, you should enable ionCube for the new version too. Our in-house built 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 can enable/disable ionCube Loader for each individual website hosted in your semi-dedicated account.
