IonCube Loader is a software tool, that's necessary to run files which are protected with ionCube PHP Encoder. The latter is an app designed to make PHP code human unreadable, in order to protect it from reverse engineering and / or illegal use. A great number of script-driven apps, particularly discussion forums, content management systems and e-commerce solutions are protected with ionCube PHP Encoder, which means that when you obtain a script and you find that ionCube is on the list of hosting environment requirements, you need to ensure that your web hosting server has the tool pre-installed. Although it is not that difficult to install it when you have your own server, it is almost impossible to do that on a shared hosting server for the reason that the PHP environment shall have to be precompiled and all the clients on the server shall be affected.
IonCube in Shared Website Hosting
When you buy a Linux shared website hosting service through us, it will be set up on our custom-built cloud platform where ionCube Loader is already installed, so you won't have any problems to manage any script application which requires the tool in order to function properly. We also offer several different releases of PHP, therefore in case you switch the version, you'll have to enable ionCube once again. Our system remembers the changes you make, so in case you go back to the earlier version of PHP that was active for your account, ionCube Loader will already be enabled. Both the PHP version as well as the ionCube instrument can be managed through the PHP Configuration section of our Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Every adjustment that you make takes literally just a single click and it will take effect at once.
IonCube in Semi-dedicated Servers
Each and every semi-dedicated server account that's set up on our outstanding cloud hosting platform includes ionCube Loader support, so you'll be able to install any script application which requires the tool. Then employ it in order to start and maintain your world wide web presence. You can activate ionCube from the PHP Configuration section of your Control Panel and it will take you just a couple of clicks to do that. The change takes effect without delay, which means that you're able to go ahead and install the necessary script inside your account. If you choose to change the PHP version that's active for the account, you'll need to activate ionCube for the new version too. Our in-house made platform also allows you to have a different PHP release for each domain or subdomain, that is done with a php.ini file in each domain folder. In the same way, you'll be able to enable/disable ionCube Loader for each individual site hosted in your semi-dedicated account.
