IonCube Loader is a tool, that is needed to run files that are encoded with ionCube PHP Encoder. The latter is an application designed to make PHP code human unreadable, in order to protect it from reverse engineering and / or unauthorized use. Various script-driven apps, particularly community forums, cms and electronic commerce solutions are encoded with ionCube PHP Encoder, so if you get a script and you notice that ionCube is on the list of website hosting environment prerequisites, you need to make sure that your hosting server has the instrument pre-installed. Though it is not that difficult to set it up when you have your own server, it is almost impossible to do that on a shared hosting server due to the fact that the PHP environment should be precompiled and all the clients on the server shall be affected.

IonCube in Web Hosting

If you aquire a web hosting plan from our company, it'll be created on our in-house made cloud platform where ionCube Loader is already set up, so you will not have any problems to run any script application which needs the instrument in order to function properly. Furthermore, we supply a few different versions of PHP, which means that in case you change the version, you will have to enable ionCube once again. Our system remembers the adjustments you make, and in case you move back to the previous version of PHP which was active for your account, ionCube Loader will already be enabled. The PHP version as well as the ionCube tool can be managed through the PHP Configuration part of our Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Any adjustment that you make takes literally just a mouse-click and it takes effect instantly.

IonCube in Semi-dedicated Servers

IonCube Loader is available with all semi-dedicated hosting plans that we provide, which means that you will not encounter any kind of problems in case you'd like to set up and use some script app that requires the software tool to operate appropriately. Activating it is as simple as clicking a single button in the Advanced area of the Hepsia Control Panel which comes with all of the semi-dedicated accounts and the change shall take effect in less than a minute, which means that you can proceed with the app set up without delay. For the reason that we use a hi-tech custom-made platform and we support many different versions of PHP simultaneously, you will have to activate ionCube any time you move to a version that you haven't used before. In addition, you'll 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 creating a php.ini file in an individual domain or subdomain folder and adding a few lines of program code within it.
