IonCube Loader is a software instrument, which is required to run files that are encrypted with ionCube PHP Encoder. The latter is an application which is used to make PHP code human unreadable, as a way to protect it from reverse engineering and not authorized usage. Numerous script-driven applications, in particular discussion forums, content management systems and electronic commerce solutions are encoded with ionCube PHP Encoder, so if you get a script and you find that ionCube is among the web hosting environment requirements, you have to make sure that your hosting server has the instrument pre-installed. Though it is not that difficult to install it when 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 will be affected.

IonCube in Shared Website Hosting

If you get a Linux shared website hosting package from us, it'll be created on our tailor-made cloud hosting platform where ionCube Loader is already set up, so you won't have any problems to run any script application which requires the instrument in order to run properly. We also provide a few different releases of PHP, which means that if you switch the version, you will have to enable ionCube again. Our system remembers the changes you make, and if you move back to the earlier version of PHP which was active for your account, ionCube Loader will already be activated. Both the PHP version and the ionCube instrument can be operated through the PHP Configuration part of our Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. Any adjustment that you make takes literally just a click and it'll take effect at once.

IonCube in Semi-dedicated Hosting

In case you aquire a semi-dedicated server plan from our company, you will be able to employ any script-driven app which needs ionCube Loader due to the fact that the tool comes with all of the servers which are part of our innovative cloud website hosting platform. Furthermore, we support various 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 example, you can enable ionCube for that particular release with just a click in your Hepsia Control Panel. Our system will remember your decision, and if you move back to the earlier release of PHP, the software instrument will already be active. For more experienced users, we also offer the option to choose the PHP version and whether ionCube will be active or not for a particular domain name without altering the settings for the entire web hosting account. This can be done by placing a php.ini file in a domain folder with a couple of lines of code.
