IonCube Loader is an instrument, that's required to run files that are encrypted with ionCube PHP Encoder. The aforementioned is an app that is used to make PHP code human unreadable, to protect it from reverse engineering or illegal usage. A great number of script-driven apps, in particular online forums, cms and e-commerce solutions are encrypted with ionCube PHP Encoder, so when you buy a script and you find that ionCube is on the list of web hosting environment prerequisites, you should ensure that your website hosting server has the instrument pre-installed. While it's not that difficult to install it when you have your own server, it's close to impossible to do that on a shared hosting server due to the fact that the PHP environment shall have to be precompiled and all of the clients on the server shall be affected.

IonCube in Cloud Website Hosting

If you buy a cloud website hosting package through us, it will be set up on our custom-built cloud hosting platform where ionCube Loader is already set up, so you won't have any kind of problems to run any script application that needs the instrument to function properly. Furthermore, we supply a few different versions of PHP, which means that in case you switch the version, you will have to activate ionCube again. Our platform remembers the changes you make, and when you move back to the previous release of PHP that was active for your account, ionCube Loader will already be activated. Both the PHP version and the ionCube instrument can be operated through the PHP Configuration part of our Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. Any change that you do takes literally just a click and it will take effect right away.

IonCube in Semi-dedicated Hosting

In case you purchase a semi-dedicated server plan from us, you can employ any script-driven application which needs ionCube Loader since the software tool is available on all servers which are a part of our modern cloud web hosting platform. We also support several releases of PHP, so 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 enable ionCube for this particular version with only a click from your Hepsia Control Panel. Our platform will remember your decision, so in case you move back to the earlier release of PHP, the instrument will already be active. For more tech-savvy users, we also provide the option to choose the PHP version and whether ionCube will be active or not for a specific domain name without altering the settings for the whole web hosting account. This is done by placing a php.ini file inside a domain folder with several lines of program code.
