IonCube Loader is a software tool, that's required to run files that are encoded with ionCube PHP Encoder. The latter is an application designed to make PHP code human unreadable, as a way to protect it from reverse engineering and unauthorized use. Numerous script-driven apps, particularly discussion forums, cms and electronic commerce solutions are encoded with ionCube PHP Encoder, therefore if you buy a script and you notice that ionCube is one of the web hosting environment prerequisites, you need to ensure that your hosting server has the instrument pre-installed. While it is not that hard to set it up if you have your own server, it's almost impossible to do that on a shared web hosting server because the PHP environment will have to be precompiled and all of the clients on the server shall be affected.

IonCube in Website Hosting

When you purchase a website hosting from our company, it'll be set up on our custom-made cloud hosting platform where ionCube Loader is already set up, so you will not have any problems to manage any script application that needs the tool to function properly. We also offer several different versions of PHP, so in case you change the version, you will need to enable ionCube again. Our platform remembers the adjustments you make, so in case you move back to the previous version of PHP that was active for your account, ionCube Loader will already be enabled. The PHP version as well as the ionCube tool can be operated from the PHP Configuration section of our Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. Any change that you do takes literally just a single click and it takes effect immediately.

IonCube in Semi-dedicated Servers

In case you get a semi-dedicated server plan from our company, you will be able to use any kind of script-driven app which requires ionCube Loader for the reason that the software tool is available on all servers that are part of our cutting-edge cloud website hosting platform. We also support multiple releases of PHP, so if you move from PHP 4 to 5.2 or 5.3, for example, you can activate ionCube for that particular release with only a click from your Hepsia Control Panel. Our platform will remember your choice, so in case you switch back to the earlier version of PHP, the software instrument will already be active. For more tech-savvy users, we also offer the option to pick the PHP version and whether ionCube will be active or not for a particular domain name without altering the settings for the entire hosting account. This can be done by putting a php.ini file within a domain folder with several lines of program code.
