IonCube Loader is a tool, that's required to run files that are encoded with ionCube PHP Encoder. The latter is an app that is used to make PHP code human unreadable, to protect it from reverse engineering and unauthorized use. Various script-driven apps, particularly forums, content management systems and e-commerce solutions are protected with ionCube PHP Encoder, so if you get a script and you notice that ionCube is one of the website hosting environment requirements, you should make sure that your website hosting server has the tool pre-installed. Though it's not that difficult to set it up when you have your own server, it's close to impossible to do that on a shared hosting server for the reason that the PHP environment will have to be precompiled and all clients on the server shall be affected.

IonCube in Shared Hosting

If you purchase a shared hosting through us, it'll be created on our tailor-made cloud platform where ionCube Loader is already present, so you won't have any kind of problems to run any script application which requires the tool so as to function properly. In addition, we offer several different releases of PHP, which means that in case you change the version, you will need to enable ionCube again. Our platform remembers the adjustments you make, so when you switch back to the earlier version of PHP which was active for your account, ionCube Loader will already be enabled. The PHP version and the ionCube instrument can be managed through the PHP Configuration section of our Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Every change that you do takes literally just a single click and it will take effect without delay.

IonCube in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Each and every semi-dedicated server account that's generated on our outstanding cloud web hosting platform includes ionCube Loader support, and you'll be able to set up any script app that needs the tool. Then employ it to start and maintain your internet presence. You can activate ionCube from the PHP Configuration section of your Control Panel and it'll take you no more than a couple of clicks to do this. The change takes effect immediately, which means that you'll be able to go ahead and install the needed script inside your account. If you'd like to switch the PHP version that's active for the account, you will need to enable ionCube for the new version as well. Our custom-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 each domain folder. In the same way, you'll be able to enable/disable ionCube Loader for each site hosted in your semi-dedicated account.
