IonCube Loader is a software instrument, that's needed to run files that are encoded with ionCube PHP Encoder. The aforementioned is an application designed to make PHP code human unreadable, in order to protect it from reverse engineering or illegal usage. A large number of script-driven applications, especially online forums, content management systems and e-commerce solutions are encrypted with ionCube PHP Encoder, which means that when you obtain a script and you notice that ionCube is one of the web hosting environment prerequisites, you have to ensure that your website hosting server has the instrument pre-installed. Though it's not that hard to set it up when you have your own server, it is almost impossible to do that on a shared hosting server since the PHP environment should be precompiled and all of the clients on the server will be affected.
IonCube in Shared Web Hosting
If you buy a Linux shared web hosting service from us, it will be set up on our tailor-made cloud platform where ionCube Loader is already installed, so you won't have any kind of problems to manage any script application that requires the instrument so as to function appropriately. Furthermore, we provide a few different versions of PHP, which means that if you switch the version, you'll need to activate ionCube again. Our platform remembers the adjustments you make, and in case you move back to the earlier release of PHP that was active for your account, ionCube Loader will already be enabled. The PHP version and the ionCube tool can be managed from the PHP Configuration section of our Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. Each adjustment that you do takes literally just a click and it'll take effect without delay.
IonCube in Semi-dedicated Hosting
IonCube Loader is available with all Linux semi-dedicated hosting services that we provide, which means that you will not encounter any problems in case you'd like to set up and use a script app which requires the tool so as to function properly. Activating it is as simple as clicking a single button inside the Advanced section of the Hepsia Control Panel that comes with all of the semi-dedicated accounts and the change shall take effect in less than a minute, therefore you are able to move forward with the application installation without any delays. For the reason that we employ a revolutionary in-house built platform and we support multiple versions of PHP at the same time, you will have to activate 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 generating a php.ini file in an individual domain or subdomain folder and adding several lines of code in it.
