IonCube Loader is a tool, that is required to run files that are protected with ionCube PHP Encoder. The aforementioned is an app that is used to make PHP code human unreadable, so as to protect it from reverse engineering and / or unauthorized usage. Numerous script-driven applications, in particular forums, cms and electronic commerce solutions are encoded with ionCube PHP Encoder, which means that if you obtain a script and you find that ionCube is on the list of web hosting environment requirements, you should ensure that your web hosting server has the tool pre-installed. While it is not that hard to set it up if you have your own server, it is almost impossible to do that on a shared web hosting server due to the fact that the PHP environment will have to be precompiled and all clients on the server will be affected.

IonCube in Cloud Web Hosting

When you obtain a Linux cloud web hosting through us, it'll be set up on our custom cloud hosting platform where ionCube Loader is already set up, so you won't have any kind of problems to manage any script application which needs the tool in order to run properly. In addition, we offer you a few different releases of PHP, therefore if you change the version, you need to enable ionCube once again. Our system remembers the changes you make, which means that in case you switch back to the previous version of PHP which was active for your account, ionCube Loader will already be activated. The PHP version and the ionCube tool can be operated through the PHP Configuration part of our Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. Any adjustment that you do takes literally just a single click and it takes effect instantly.

IonCube in Semi-dedicated Hosting

IonCube Loader is provided with all Linux semi-dedicated hosting that we offer, and you will not encounter any kind of problems in case you'd like to set up and use a script application that requires the tool to operate appropriately. Enabling it is as simple as clicking a single button inside the Advanced area of the Hepsia Control Panel that comes with all the semi-dedicated accounts and the change will take effect in a minute, therefore you will be able to move forward with the app installation without any delays. Since we use a hi-tech in-house made platform and we support several versions of PHP at the same time, you'll need to activate ionCube any time you move to a version that you have not used before. You will also have the option to enable ionCube loader and even to set a PHP release different from the one in the account as a whole by creating a php.ini file in a separate domain or subdomain folder and adding a couple of lines of program code within it.
