IonCube Loader is an instrument, which is required to run files that are encoded with ionCube PHP Encoder. The aforementioned is an application that is used to make PHP code human unreadable, as a way to protect it from reverse engineering or unauthorized usage. Lots of script-driven applications, especially forums, cms and e-commerce solutions are encoded with ionCube PHP Encoder, therefore when you acquire a script and you notice that ionCube is one of the website hosting environment requirements, you should make sure that your website hosting server has the tool pre-installed. While it's not that hard to install it if you have your own server, it's almost impossible to do that on a shared hosting server because the PHP environment should be precompiled and all clients on the server will be affected.

IonCube in Shared Hosting

If you purchase a shared hosting plan through our company, it'll be created on our in-house built cloud platform where ionCube Loader is already installed, so you won't have any problems to run any script application that needs the tool in order to function appropriately. We also supply several different releases of PHP, which means that if you switch the version, you will have to enable ionCube once again. Our platform remembers the adjustments you make, which means that when you go back to the previous version of PHP that was active for your account, ionCube Loader will already be enabled. Both the PHP version and the ionCube instrument can be managed from the PHP Configuration section of our Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Every change that you do takes literally just a click and it takes effect right away.

IonCube in Semi-dedicated Servers

IonCube Loader is available with all semi-dedicated plans that we supply, so you will not have any kind of problems in case you'd like to install and work with some script application that requires the tool so as to operate properly. Enabling it is as easy as clicking a single button inside the Advanced area of the Hepsia Control Panel that comes with all of the semi-dedicated accounts and the change will take effect in less than a minute, therefore you can move forward with the app set up without any delays. Since we employ a revolutionary custom platform and we support many different versions of PHP at the same time, you will have to activate ionCube every time you move to a version that you haven't used before. In addition, you'll have the option to enable ionCube loader or even to set a PHP version different from the one in the account as a whole by creating a php.ini file in an individual domain or subdomain folder and adding several lines of code within it.
