IonCube Loader is a tool, which is needed to run files which are encrypted with ionCube PHP Encoder. The aforementioned is an application used to make PHP code human unreadable, in order to protect it from reverse engineering and / or unauthorized use. A lot of script-driven apps, in particular online forums, content management systems and electronic commerce solutions are encoded with ionCube PHP Encoder, therefore when you purchase a script and you notice that ionCube is one of the web hosting environment prerequisites, you need to make sure that your website hosting server has the tool pre-installed. While it's not that hard to set it up if you have your own server, it is almost impossible to do that on a shared hosting server since the PHP environment will have to be precompiled and all of the clients on the server shall be affected.

IonCube in Hosting

When you purchase a Linux hosting from our company, it will be set up on our in-house built cloud platform where ionCube Loader is already set up, so you won't have any problems to run any script app which needs the instrument in order to function appropriately. Furthermore, we offer you a few different versions of PHP, which means that in case you switch the version, you need to enable ionCube once again. Our system remembers the adjustments you make, so if you move back to the previous release of PHP that was active for your account, ionCube Loader will already be turned on. The PHP version and the ionCube instrument can be managed from the PHP Configuration area of our Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Every change that you make takes literally just a mouse-click and it'll take effect immediately.

IonCube in Semi-dedicated Hosting

IonCube Loader is provided with all Linux semi-dedicated hosting that we supply, so you won't experience any kind of problems in case you'd like to set up and work with a script app which requires the tool so as to operate properly. Activating it is as simple as clicking a button inside the Advanced section of the Hepsia Control Panel that comes with all the semi-dedicated accounts and the change will take effect in less than a minute, therefore you're able to proceed with the application set up without any delays. As we use an innovative in-house built platform and we support a number of versions of PHP simultaneously, you'll need to enable ionCube every time you switch to a version that you have not used before. Additionally, you have the option to enable ionCube loader or even to set a PHP release different from the one in the account as a whole by generating a php.ini file in a separate domain or subdomain folder and adding several lines of program code in it.
