IonCube Loader is a tool, that is required to run files which are encrypted with ionCube PHP Encoder. The latter is an app used to make PHP code human unreadable, to protect it from reverse engineering and illegal usage. A large number of script-driven applications, in particular discussion forums, content management systems and e-commerce solutions are encoded with ionCube PHP Encoder, so when you obtain a script and you find that ionCube is one of the hosting environment prerequisites, you should ensure that your website hosting server has the instrument pre-installed. Though it is not that difficult to install it if you have your own server, it is close to impossible to do that on a shared web hosting server because the PHP environment will have to be precompiled and all clients on the server shall be affected.

IonCube in Cloud Hosting

When you aquire a cloud hosting through our company, it'll be set up on our custom-made cloud hosting platform where ionCube Loader is already present, so you will not have any problems to run any script application that needs the tool to run properly. In addition, we provide a few different releases of PHP, therefore if you change the version, you need to enable ionCube once again. Our platform 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 turned on. Both the PHP version and the ionCube instrument can be operated from the PHP Configuration part of our Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. Each adjustment that you make takes literally just a click and it'll take effect right away.

IonCube in Semi-dedicated Servers

In case you get a semi-dedicated server package from us, you can employ any kind of script-driven application which needs ionCube Loader for the reason that the software tool comes with all of the servers which are a part of our advanced cloud website hosting platform. Furthermore, we support several versions of PHP, which means that if you move from PHP 4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4, 5.5, 5.6, 7.0, 7.1, 7.2, 7.3, 7.4, 8.0, 8.1, 8.2, for instance, you can activate ionCube for this particular version with just a click in your Hepsia Control Panel. Our system will remember your decision, and if you switch back to the earlier release of PHP, the software tool will already be active. For more experienced users, we also provide the option to choose the PHP version and if ionCube will be active or not for a particular domain without altering the settings for the whole website hosting account. This is done by putting a php.ini file within a domain folder with a few lines of program code.
