IonCube Loader is a tool, that's necessary to run files that are encrypted with ionCube PHP Encoder. The latter is an app which is used to make PHP code human unreadable, to protect it from reverse engineering or unauthorized use. Various script-driven apps, in particular message boards, cms and e-commerce solutions are protected with ionCube PHP Encoder, which means that if you purchase a script and you find that ionCube is among the web hosting environment prerequisites, you need to ensure that your web hosting server has the tool pre-installed. While it is not that difficult to install it when 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 should be precompiled and all clients on the server shall be affected.
IonCube in Shared Website Hosting
When you obtain a Linux shared website hosting through us, it will be created on our custom-made cloud hosting platform where ionCube Loader is already installed, so you won't have any kind of problems to manage any script application which needs the instrument to function properly. Furthermore, we offer a few different releases of PHP, so in case you switch the version, you need to activate ionCube again. Our platform remembers the changes you make, and when you move back to the previous release of PHP which was active for your account, ionCube Loader will already be activated. The PHP version as well as the ionCube tool can be managed from the PHP Configuration section of our Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. Every adjustment that you make takes literally just a mouse-click and it will take effect without delay.
IonCube in Semi-dedicated Hosting
IonCube Loader is provided with all semi-dedicated hosting services that we provide, and you will not have any problems if you would like to install and work with some script application that requires the tool so as to operate properly. Enabling it is as simple as clicking a single button inside the Advanced section of the Hepsia Control Panel that comes with all the semi-dedicated accounts and the change shall take effect in less than a minute, so you're able to move forward with the app installation without any delays. Since we use a hi-tech custom-built platform and we support a number of versions of PHP simultaneously, you'll need to enable ionCube any time you move to a version that you haven't used before. In addition, you'll have the option to enable ionCube loader and even to set a PHP release 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 inside it.
