IonCube Loader is a software tool, that's necessary to run files that are protected with ionCube PHP Encoder. The latter is an app which is used to make PHP code human unreadable, to protect it from reverse engineering and / or unauthorized usage. Plenty of script-driven applications, particularly forums, content management systems and electronic commerce solutions are encrypted with ionCube PHP Encoder, which means that when you acquire a script and you notice that ionCube is one of the website hosting environment prerequisites, you should ensure that your web hosting server has the instrument pre-installed. While it's not that hard to install it if you have your own server, it is close to impossible to do that on a shared web hosting server due to the fact that the PHP environment shall have to be precompiled and all of the clients on the server shall be affected.
IonCube in Website Hosting
When you purchase a Linux website hosting through us, it'll be set up on our custom cloud hosting platform where ionCube Loader is already set up, so you will not have any kind of problems to manage any script application which requires the tool in order to run appropriately. We also provide a few different releases of PHP, which means that if you switch the version, you'll need to enable ionCube again. Our system remembers the changes you make, and in case you move back to the previous release of PHP that was active for your account, ionCube Loader will already be activated. Both the PHP version and the ionCube instrument can be managed from the PHP Configuration section of our Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Each change that you make takes literally just a single click and it'll take effect without delay.
IonCube in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Since all of the semi-dedicated server accounts are created on our advanced cluster platform and ionCube Loader is available on it, you shall be able to use any script app that needs the tool in order to run effectively. With a couple of clicks in the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel you can activate or deactivate ionCube for the PHP version that's currently active for your account. As we support multiple versions of PHP simultaneously, you will have to do that any time you move to a new release, but when you revert back to a release which you have already used, our system will remember your preference and ionCube Loader will already be active. When you have a couple of websites in the same account and they require different versions of PHP, you will be able to create a php.ini file in every single domain folder and with a couple of lines of code you can define both the PHP version and the status of ionCube irrespective of what is selected for the hosting account altogether.
