IonCube Loader is a tool, that is needed to run files that are protected with ionCube PHP Encoder. The latter is an application which is used to make PHP code human unreadable, in order to protect it from reverse engineering or unauthorized usage. Many script-driven apps, in particular community forums, content management systems and electronic commerce solutions are encoded with ionCube PHP Encoder, which means that if you acquire a script and you find that ionCube is among the web hosting environment requirements, you have to make sure that your hosting server has the instrument pre-installed. Although 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 due to the fact that the PHP environment will have to be precompiled and all of the clients on the server shall be affected.
IonCube in Cloud Website Hosting
If you obtain a Linux cloud website hosting package from us, it will be set up on our in-house built cloud hosting platform where ionCube Loader is already set up, so you will not have any problems to manage any script application that needs the instrument in order to function appropriately. In addition, we provide several different versions of PHP, so if you change the version, you'll need to activate ionCube again. Our system remembers the adjustments you make, and when you move back to the earlier version of PHP that was active for your account, ionCube Loader will already be enabled. The PHP version and the ionCube instrument can be managed through the PHP Configuration section of our Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. Each change that you do takes literally just a mouse-click and it takes effect instantly.
IonCube in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Every single semi-dedicated server account which is set up on our modern cloud website hosting platform includes ionCube Loader support, which means that you can install any kind of script application which needs the tool. Then use it in order to launch and maintain your web presence. You can activate ionCube from the PHP Configuration section of the Control Panel and it'll take you just a few clicks to do that. The change takes effect immediately, which means that you are able to go ahead and install the necessary script inside your account. If you'd like to switch the PHP version that's active for your account, you will have to activate ionCube for the new release too. Our custom-built platform also allows you to have a different PHP release for each and every domain or subdomain, that is done with a php.ini file in every domain folder. In the same way, you are able to enable/disable ionCube Loader for each site hosted in your semi-dedicated account.
