IonCube Loader is a software tool, which is necessary to run files that are encoded with ionCube PHP Encoder. The aforementioned is an application that is used to make PHP code human unreadable, so as to protect it from reverse engineering or illegal use. Plenty of script-driven apps, especially community forums, content management systems and electronic commerce solutions are protected with ionCube PHP Encoder, so if you acquire a script and you find that ionCube is among the website hosting environment requirements, you need to ensure that your web hosting server has the instrument pre-installed. Though it is 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 since the PHP environment will have to be precompiled and all of the clients on the server will be affected.

IonCube Loader is supplied with each and every Linux cloud hosting package that we offer and you're able to enable it anytime with only a few clicks, so you will be able to take advantage of script apps which need it. You will be able to do this through the PHP Configuration area of your Hepsia Control Panel and all it takes to activate or deactivate ionCube is to click a single button. The change takes effect in a minute, therefore you will be able to go ahead and set up the application that you would like right away. The same section will allow you to change the PHP version that's active for your account, because we support a variety of releases on our cutting-edge cloud hosting platform. In case you move to a version that you have never used to date, you will have to enable ionCube Loader once again. More advanced users will be able to use a php.ini file in a particular domain folder so as to set a PHP version different from the one for the entire account or enable/disable ionCube Loader.

IonCube in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Due to the fact that all the semi-dedicated server accounts are set up on our advanced cluster platform and ionCube Loader is available on it, you shall be able to use any script app which requires the software tool so as to run effectively. With several clicks in the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel you will be able to activate or deactivate ionCube for the PHP version that is currently active for the account. Because we support several releases of PHP at the same time, you will have to do that any time you switch to a different version, but when you revert back to a release that you've already used, our system will remember your preference and ionCube Loader will already be active. If you have a couple of sites in the same account and they need different releases of PHP, you're able to set up a php.ini file in every single domain folder and with a couple of lines of code you're able to define both the PHP version plus the status of ionCube no matter what is selected for the web hosting account altogether.
