IonCube Loader is a tool, that's required to run files which are encrypted with ionCube PHP Encoder. The latter is an app that is used to make PHP code human unreadable, to protect it from reverse engineering or not authorized usage. A great number of script-driven applications, in particular discussion boards, cms and e-commerce solutions are encrypted with ionCube PHP Encoder, which means that if you acquire a script and you find that ionCube is one of the website hosting environment requirements, you have to ensure that your hosting server has the tool pre-installed. Though it is not that hard to install it when you have your own server, it's almost impossible to do that on a shared web hosting server as the PHP environment shall have to be precompiled and all the clients on the server will be affected.

IonCube in Shared Website Hosting

When you purchase a Linux shared website hosting package from us, it'll be created on our in-house built cloud hosting platform where ionCube Loader is already installed, so you won't have any problems to run any script app which requires the instrument in order to function appropriately. In addition, we offer you a few different releases of PHP, so if you change the version, you'll have to activate ionCube once again. Our platform remembers the changes you make, which means that in case you move back to the previous version 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 section of our Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. Each adjustment that you make takes literally just a click and it will take effect at once.

IonCube in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Each semi-dedicated server account that's generated on our cutting-edge cloud website hosting platform features ionCube Loader support, which means that you'll be able to set up any kind of script app which needs the software tool. Then employ it to launch and maintain your internet presence. You can activate ionCube from the PHP Configuration section of your Control Panel and it will take you no more than a few clicks to do that. Your change takes effect immediately, which means that you're able to proceed and set up the necessary script inside your account. If you choose to switch the PHP version which is active for your account, you need to enable ionCube for the new version as well. Our in-house built platform also allows you to have a different PHP version for each domain or subdomain, that is done with a php.ini file in every domain folder. In the same way, you'll be able to enable/disable ionCube Loader for each site hosted in your semi-dedicated account.
