IonCube Loader is an instrument, that is required to run files that are protected with ionCube PHP Encoder. The aforementioned is an app designed to make PHP code human unreadable, so as to protect it from reverse engineering or unauthorized usage. A lot of script-driven applications, particularly discussion boards, content management systems and electronic commerce solutions are protected with ionCube PHP Encoder, therefore if you buy a script and you find that ionCube is on the list of web hosting environment prerequisites, you have to make sure that your website hosting server has the instrument pre-installed. Although it's 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 due to the fact that the PHP environment shall have to be precompiled and all clients on the server shall be affected.

IonCube in Cloud Web Hosting

IonCube Loader is available with all of the cloud web hosting packages which we supply, so every time you need it in order to set up and execute a script application that requires it, you can activate it with a single click from the Advanced area of your Hepsia Control Panel. Due to the fact that you are able to change the PHP version which is active for your account from the same section, you'll have to activate the tool for any new version that you set. If you're more skillful, you are able to take advantage of a php.ini file in a domain or subdomain folder and set the PHP version as well as the status of ionCube Loader for that particular site only, without affecting the whole account. Thus you will be able to manage both new and older script applications for multiple sites in the same account - a thing that you can't do with various other website hosting providers available on the market.

IonCube in Semi-dedicated Servers

Because 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 requires this tool in order to function efficiently. With several clicks in your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel you're able to activate or deactivate ionCube for the PHP version that's currently active for your account. Because we support a couple of versions of PHP at the same time, you will have to do this every time you move to a different version, but if you revert back to a version that you've already used, our system will remember your choice and ionCube Loader will already be active. When you have multiple sites in the same account and they need different releases of PHP, you can create a php.ini file in every single domain folder and with a couple of lines of program code you're able to define both the PHP version as well as the status of ionCube regardless of what is selected for the web hosting account as a whole.
