IonCube Loader is a software instrument, that's necessary to run files which are protected with ionCube PHP Encoder. The latter is an app which is used to make PHP code human unreadable, as a way to protect it from reverse engineering and / or illegal use. A number of script-driven applications, especially discussion boards, content management systems and electronic commerce solutions are encrypted with ionCube PHP Encoder, therefore if you purchase a script and you find that ionCube is one of the hosting environment prerequisites, you have to make sure that your web hosting server has the instrument pre-installed. While it's not that difficult to set it up when you have your own server, it's close to impossible to do that on a shared web hosting server because the PHP environment will have to be precompiled and all the clients on the server will be affected.

IonCube in Web Hosting

If you buy a Linux web hosting from our company, it'll be created on our in-house made cloud platform where ionCube Loader is already present, so you will not have any kind of problems to run any script app which needs the tool in order to run properly. We also offer a few different releases of PHP, therefore if you change the version, you need to activate ionCube once again. Our system remembers the adjustments you make, and if you move back to the previous version of PHP which was active for your account, ionCube Loader will already be turned on. Both the PHP version and the ionCube tool can be operated through the PHP Configuration part of our Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. Every adjustment that you do takes literally just a mouse-click and it takes effect at once.

IonCube in Semi-dedicated Hosting

In case you obtain a semi-dedicated server package from us, you'll be able to use any script-driven app which needs ionCube Loader for the reason that the software tool comes with all of the servers that are part of our advanced cloud hosting platform. Furthermore, we support multiple releases of PHP, therefore if you move from PHP 4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4, 5.5, 5.6, 7.0, 7.1, 7.2, 7.3, 7.4, 8.0, 8.1, 8.2, for instance, you can enable ionCube for this particular release with just a click from your Hepsia Control Panel. Our system will remember your decision, and if you move back to the previous release of PHP, the instrument will already be active. For more experienced users, we also offer the option to pick the PHP version and whether ionCube will be active or not for a specific domain name without altering the settings for the whole website hosting account. This is done by putting a php.ini file in a domain folder with a couple of lines of program code.
