IonCube Loader is a software instrument, that's required to run files which are encrypted with ionCube PHP Encoder. The aforementioned is an application used to make PHP code human unreadable, to protect it from reverse engineering and / or unauthorized use. Various script-driven applications, particularly message boards, content management systems and e-commerce solutions are encrypted with ionCube PHP Encoder, which means that if you purchase a script and you notice that ionCube is on the list of website hosting environment prerequisites, you should ensure that your web hosting server has the tool pre-installed. While it's not that difficult to set it up if you have your own server, it's almost impossible to do that on a shared web hosting server as the PHP environment shall have to be precompiled and all of the clients on the server shall be affected.

IonCube in Cloud Website Hosting

If you buy a Linux cloud website hosting from us, it will be set up on our custom cloud hosting platform where ionCube Loader is already present, so you won't have any problems to run any script application that needs the instrument in order to function appropriately. Furthermore, we offer a few different releases of PHP, which means that if you change the version, you'll need to activate ionCube again. Our system remembers the changes you make, so if you go back to the earlier version of PHP that was active for your account, ionCube Loader will already be enabled. The PHP version and the ionCube instrument can be operated through the PHP Configuration section of our Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Each adjustment that you do takes literally just a click and it takes effect at once.

IonCube in Semi-dedicated Hosting

IonCube Loader is provided with all semi-dedicated hosting that we provide, which means that you will not experience any problems if you'd like to set up and work with some script app that requires the software instrument so as to function properly. Activating it is as simple as clicking a button in the Advanced section of the Hepsia Control Panel which comes with all of the semi-dedicated accounts and the change will take effect in a minute, which means that you can proceed with the application set up without any delays. Due to the fact that we use a cutting-edge custom-made platform and we support many different versions of PHP at the same time, you'll have to enable ionCube any time you switch to a version that you have not used before. You will also have the option to activate ionCube loader or 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 couple of lines of code inside it.
