IonCube Loader is a tool, which is needed to run files that are encoded with ionCube PHP Encoder. The aforementioned is an application used to make PHP code human unreadable, so as to protect it from reverse engineering or unauthorized usage. A lot of script-driven applications, in particular online forums, cms and electronic commerce solutions are protected with ionCube PHP Encoder, therefore when you purchase a script and you find that ionCube is one of the website hosting environment requirements, you need to ensure that your website hosting server has the instrument pre-installed. Though it is not that hard to install it if you have your own server, it's almost impossible to do that on a shared web hosting server because the PHP environment should be precompiled and all the clients on the server shall be affected.

IonCube in Cloud Hosting

IonCube Loader is supplied with each and every Linux cloud hosting that we provide and you are able to enable it anytime with just a few clicks, so you can take advantage of script applications that require it. You are able to do that from the PHP Configuration section of your Hepsia Control Panel and all it'll take to activate or disable ionCube is to click a single button. The change takes effect within a minute, therefore you're able to proceed and install the app that you'd like without delay. The exact same section allows you to change the PHP release that's active for your account, because we support numerous versions on our advanced cloud platform. If you move to a version that you have never used to date, you will have to enable ionCube Loader once again. Experienced users can use a php.ini file in a particular domain folder in order to set a PHP release different from the one for the whole account or enable/disable ionCube Loader.

IonCube in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Due to the fact that all of the semi-dedicated server accounts are set up on our advanced cluster platform and ionCube Loader is available on it, you'll be able to use any script application that needs the software tool so as to work effectively. With a couple of clicks in the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel you're able to activate or deactivate ionCube for the PHP version that's currently active for your account. Because we support several versions of PHP at the same time, you will have to do this each and every time you switch to a new release, and when you revert back to a version which you have already used, our system will remember your preference and ionCube Loader will already be activated. If you have a couple of websites in the same account and they need different releases of PHP, you are able to create a php.ini file in each and every domain folder and with a couple of lines of code you're able to define both the PHP release as well as the status of ionCube regardless of what is selected for the hosting account altogether.
