IonCube Loader is an instrument, that's required to run files that are encrypted with ionCube PHP Encoder. The aforementioned is an app used to make PHP code human unreadable, so as to protect it from reverse engineering or illegal usage. Lots of script-driven applications, particularly forums, content management systems and e-commerce solutions are protected with ionCube PHP Encoder, so if you obtain a script and you find that ionCube is on the list of web hosting environment requirements, you should make sure that your hosting server has the instrument pre-installed. While it's not that hard to set it up when you have your own server, it's almost impossible to do that on a shared hosting server because the PHP environment will have to be precompiled and all of the clients on the server will be affected.

IonCube in Cloud Hosting

IonCube Loader is supplied with every single cloud service that we provide and you can enable it anytime with only a few clicks, so you will be able to take advantage of script applications which need it. You will be able to do this from the PHP Configuration section of your Hepsia Control Panel and all it will take to enable or disable ionCube is to click a single button. The change takes effect in a minute, which means that you are able to proceed and install the app that you would like without delay. The exact same section will allow you to change the PHP version which is active for your account, as we support a number of releases on our leading-edge cloud platform. In case you switch to a release that you haven't used so far, you will need to enable ionCube Loader again. Experienced users can use a php.ini file in a particular domain folder to set a PHP version different from the one for the whole account or enable/disable ionCube Loader.

IonCube in Semi-dedicated Servers

Due to the fact that all of the semi-dedicated server accounts are created on our advanced cluster platform and ionCube Loader is available on it, you will be able to use any script application that needs the software tool to run effectively. With just a few clicks in your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel you'll be able to activate or deactivate ionCube for the PHP version which is currently active for your account. As we support multiple versions of PHP concurrently, you'll need to do that any time you move to a new version, and if you revert back to a release which you've already used, our system will remember your choice and ionCube Loader will already be active. If you have multiple websites inside the same account and they need different releases of PHP, you will be able to create a php.ini file in each and every domain folder and with a couple of lines of code you'll be able to define both the PHP release and the status of ionCube irrespective of what is selected for the web hosting account altogether.
