IonCube Loader is a tool, which is necessary to run files which are protected 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 / or unauthorized use. A number of script-driven apps, especially message boards, content management systems and electronic commerce solutions are encrypted with ionCube PHP Encoder, which means that when you get a script and you notice that ionCube is one of the hosting environment prerequisites, you should make sure that your web hosting server has the tool pre-installed. Although it's not that hard to install it if 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 obtain a Linux shared website hosting package through our company, it'll be set up on our custom-built cloud platform where ionCube Loader is already installed, so you won't have any kind of problems to manage any script app which requires the tool in order to run properly. Furthermore, we offer you a few different versions of PHP, so if you change the version, you will have to activate ionCube again. Our system remembers the adjustments you make, and if you switch back to the earlier release of PHP which was active for your account, ionCube Loader will already be enabled. Both the PHP version and the ionCube instrument can be managed through the PHP Configuration area of our Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Any adjustment that you make takes literally just a single click and it takes effect instantly.

IonCube in Semi-dedicated Hosting

IonCube Loader is available with all the Linux semi-dedicated hosting packages that we offer, and you will not experience any kind of problems if you would like to set up and work with a script app which requires the software tool so as to function appropriately. Enabling it is as simple as clicking a button in the Advanced area of the Hepsia Control Panel which comes with all the semi-dedicated accounts and the change will take effect in less than a minute, so you will be able to proceed with the app set up without delay. For the reason that we employ a hi-tech custom platform and we support multiple versions of PHP at the same time, you will need to enable ionCube any time you switch to a version that you haven't used before. Additionally, you have the option to activate ionCube loader and even to set a PHP version different from the one in the account as a whole by generating a php.ini file in an individual domain or subdomain folder and adding a few lines of program code inside it.
