IonCube Loader is a software tool, which is required to run files which are protected with ionCube PHP Encoder. The aforementioned is an application that is used to make PHP code human unreadable, in order to protect it from reverse engineering or unauthorized usage. Many script-driven apps, particularly online forums, cms and e-commerce solutions are encoded with ionCube PHP Encoder, which means that when you buy a script and you notice that ionCube is among the web hosting environment prerequisites, you need to ensure that your web hosting server has the instrument pre-installed. Though it is not that hard to install it if you have your own server, it's almost impossible to do that on a shared hosting server due to the fact that the PHP environment shall have to be precompiled and all the clients on the server shall be affected.

IonCube in Cloud Hosting

IonCube Loader is provided with all cloud hosting packages which we offer, so any time you require it in order to install and execute some script application which requires it, you can enable it with a click inside the Advanced area of your Hepsia Control Panel. Since you'll be able to change the PHP release that's active for your account in the same section, you will have to enable the instrument for any new version that you set. In case you are more skillful, you'll be able to take advantage of a php.ini file in a domain or subdomain folder and set both the PHP version as well as the status of ionCube Loader for that particular website only, without affecting the entire account. Thus you are able to operate both new and older script applications for multiple websites within the same account - a thing that you won't be able to do with many other hosting providers available on the market.

IonCube in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Because all semi-dedicated server accounts are created on our advanced cluster platform and ionCube Loader is available on it, you'll be able to use any script app which requires this tool in order to run properly. With just a few clicks in your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel you'll be able to activate or deactivate ionCube for the PHP version that's currently active for your account. Since we support a couple of releases of PHP concurrently, you'll have to do that any time you switch to a new release, and if you revert back to a version which you've already used, our system will remember your preference and ionCube Loader will already be active. When you have several websites inside the same account and they require different releases of PHP, you're able to create a php.ini file in each and every domain folder and with a couple of lines of program code you are able to define both the PHP version and the status of ionCube no matter what is selected for the web hosting account altogether.
