IonCube Loader is a software tool, that is necessary to run files which are encoded with ionCube PHP Encoder. The latter is an app designed to make PHP code human unreadable, in order to protect it from reverse engineering and / or not authorized usage. Lots of script-driven applications, in particular discussion boards, cms and electronic commerce solutions are encoded with ionCube PHP Encoder, which means that when you buy a script and you notice that ionCube is among the web hosting environment requirements, you have to make sure that your hosting server has the instrument pre-installed. While it is not that difficult to set it up when you have your own server, it's close to impossible to do that on a shared web hosting server as the PHP environment will have to be precompiled and all clients on the server will be affected.

IonCube in Shared Hosting

If you buy a Linux shared hosting package through us, it will be created on our custom cloud hosting platform where ionCube Loader is already installed, so you won't have any kind of problems to manage any script application that needs the tool so as to function appropriately. In addition, we provide a few different releases of PHP, so in case you switch the version, you need to activate ionCube once again. Our platform remembers the changes you make, and if you move back to the earlier version of PHP that was active for your account, ionCube Loader will already be activated. The PHP version as well as the ionCube tool can be managed through the PHP Configuration section of our Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. Every change that you do takes literally just a click and it will take effect right away.

IonCube in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Each semi-dedicated server account which is generated on our cutting-edge cloud hosting platform features ionCube Loader support, and you can install any kind of script app that requires the software tool. Then use it to start and maintain your web presence. You can activate ionCube through the PHP Configuration section of your Control Panel and it'll take you just a couple of clicks to do that. The change takes effect instantly, which means that you'll be able to go ahead and set up the necessary script in your account. If you'd like to switch the PHP version which is active for your account, you'll need to activate ionCube for the new release too. Our in-house made platform also allows you to have a different PHP release for each domain or subdomain, that is done with a php.ini file in every domain folder. In the same way, you can enable/disable ionCube Loader for each site hosted in your semi-dedicated account.
