IonCube Loader is an instrument, that is necessary to run files which are protected 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 not authorized usage. Plenty of script-driven apps, in particular forums, content management systems and e-commerce solutions are encoded with ionCube PHP Encoder, which means that if you purchase a script and you find that ionCube is one of the website hosting environment requirements, you should ensure that your web hosting server has the instrument pre-installed. Although it is not that hard to install it if you have your own server, it's close to impossible to do that on a shared web hosting server as the PHP environment should be precompiled and all clients on the server shall be affected.
IonCube in Shared Hosting
When you get a shared hosting from us, it'll be set up on our in-house made cloud hosting platform where ionCube Loader is already set up, so you will not have any kind of problems to run any script application that requires the tool to function properly. We also offer you several different versions of PHP, so if you change the version, you'll need to activate ionCube once again. Our system remembers the adjustments you make, so if you switch back to the earlier version 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 part of our Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Every change that you do takes literally just a mouse-click and it'll take effect right away.
IonCube in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Since all the semi-dedicated server accounts are set up 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 to run properly. With several clicks in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel you are able to activate or deactivate ionCube for the PHP version that's currently active for your account. Because we support several versions of PHP concurrently, you will have to do that every time you switch to a different release, and when you revert back to a release which you've already used, our system will remember your preference and ionCube Loader will already be active. If you have multiple sites inside the same account and they need different releases of PHP, you're able to set up a php.ini file in each and every domain folder and with several lines of code you will be able to define both the PHP release and the status of ionCube irrespective of what is selected for the website hosting account as a whole.
