IonCube Loader is a software instrument, which is required to run files which are protected with ionCube PHP Encoder. The aforementioned is an application which is used to make PHP code human unreadable, in order to protect it from reverse engineering or unauthorized use. Many script-driven apps, in particular online forums, content management systems and e-commerce solutions are encoded with ionCube PHP Encoder, therefore if you acquire a script and you find that ionCube is on the list of website hosting environment prerequisites, you have to make sure that your web hosting server has the tool pre-installed. While it's not that difficult to set it up if you have your own server, it is almost 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 Hosting
If you aquire a hosting from our company, it'll be set up on our tailor-made cloud hosting platform where ionCube Loader is already installed, so you won't have any problems to run any script application that needs the instrument in order to run appropriately. Furthermore, we supply several different releases of PHP, therefore if you change the version, you'll have to enable ionCube again. Our platform remembers the adjustments you make, which means that when you go back to the earlier version of PHP that was active for your account, ionCube Loader will already be turned on. The PHP version as well as the ionCube instrument can be operated through the PHP Configuration section of our Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. Each change that you make takes literally just a click and it will take effect immediately.
IonCube in Semi-dedicated Servers
IonCube Loader is available with all semi-dedicated servers that we supply, and you will not have any problems in case you would like to set up and use a script app that requires the tool to operate properly. Activating it is as easy as clicking a single button inside the Advanced part of the Hepsia Control Panel that comes with all the semi-dedicated accounts and the change shall take effect in a minute, therefore you're able to proceed with the application set up without delay. For the reason that we use an avant-garde in-house made platform and we support many different versions of PHP simultaneously, you will have to enable ionCube any time you switch to a version that you haven't used before. You will also 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 generating a php.ini file in an individual domain or subdomain folder and adding a few lines of code in it.
