IonCube Loader is an instrument, that is needed to run files that are protected with ionCube PHP Encoder. The aforementioned is an app which is used to make PHP code human unreadable, so as to protect it from reverse engineering or unauthorized usage. A great number of script-driven applications, especially discussion boards, cms and e-commerce solutions are encoded with ionCube PHP Encoder, which means that when you get a script and you notice that ionCube is among the hosting environment prerequisites, you should make sure that your hosting server has the tool pre-installed. While it's not that difficult to install it when you have your own server, it is almost impossible to do that on a shared web hosting server for the reason that the PHP environment should be precompiled and all the clients on the server shall be affected.

IonCube in Website Hosting

IonCube Loader is available with all of the website hosting plans which we supply, so every time you require it to install and run some script application that needs it, you can enable it with a single click from the Advanced area of the Hepsia Control Panel. Due to the fact that you are able to change the PHP release that's active for your account from the same section, you'll have to activate the instrument for every new version which you set. When you're more skillful, you're able to employ a php.ini file in a domain or subdomain folder and set the PHP version and the status of ionCube Loader for this particular site only, without affecting the whole account. Thus you'll be able to run both new and older script applications for multiple websites within the same account - a thing that you cannot do with various other web hosting suppliers on the market.

IonCube in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Each and every semi-dedicated server account which is generated on our modern cloud hosting platform comes with ionCube Loader support, and you'll be able to set up any script app which needs the software tool. Then use it to launch and maintain your internet presence. You can activate ionCube from the PHP Configuration area of the Control Panel and it'll take you only a few clicks to do this. The change takes effect right away, which means that you are able to go ahead and install the needed script in your account. If you'd like to change the PHP version that is active for your account, you need to activate ionCube for the new version too. Our in-house built platform also allows you to have a different PHP version for each domain or subdomain, which is done with a php.ini file in every domain folder. In the same way, you'll be able to enable/disable ionCube Loader for each site hosted in your semi-dedicated account.
