IonCube Loader is a tool, that's necessary to run files which are encoded with ionCube PHP Encoder. The latter is an application designed to make PHP code human unreadable, to protect it from reverse engineering or not authorized use. A large number of script-driven applications, particularly discussion boards, cms and electronic commerce solutions are encoded with ionCube PHP Encoder, so when you obtain a script and you notice that ionCube is one of the web hosting environment prerequisites, you have to ensure that your website hosting server has the tool pre-installed. While it is not that hard to install it when you have your own server, it's almost impossible to do that on a shared web hosting server because the PHP environment will have to be precompiled and all of the clients on the server shall be affected.
IonCube in Shared Hosting
If you buy a Linux shared package from our company, it'll be set up on our in-house made cloud platform where ionCube Loader is already present, so you won't have any problems to run any script app that needs the tool in order to run properly. Furthermore, we offer a few different releases of PHP, so if you switch the version, you'll need to enable ionCube again. Our platform remembers the adjustments you make, and when you move back to the earlier release of PHP that was active for your account, ionCube Loader will already be turned on. The PHP version as well as the ionCube instrument can be operated from the PHP Configuration area of our Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Each adjustment that you make takes literally just a single click and it'll take effect without delay.
IonCube in Semi-dedicated Hosting
In case you get a semi-dedicated server plan from us, you can take advantage of any script-driven application that requires ionCube Loader for the reason that the tool comes with all the servers that are a part of our cutting-edge cloud web hosting platform. Furthermore, we support different versions 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 example, you can enable ionCube for this particular release with only a click in your Hepsia Control Panel. Our system will remember your decision, so if you switch back to the earlier release of PHP, the tool will already be active. For more experienced users, we also offer 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 website hosting account. This can be done by putting a php.ini file inside a domain folder with several lines of code.
