IonCube Loader is a software tool, which is required to run files which are encoded with ionCube PHP Encoder. The aforementioned is an application which is used to make PHP code human unreadable, as a way to protect it from reverse engineering or illegal usage. A large number of script-driven applications, especially online forums, content management systems and e-commerce solutions are encoded with ionCube PHP Encoder, therefore when you buy a script and you find that ionCube is on the list of website hosting environment prerequisites, you need to ensure that your website hosting server has the instrument pre-installed. Although it is not that difficult to install it if you have your own server, it is close to impossible to do that on a shared web hosting server as the PHP environment should be precompiled and all the clients on the server will be affected.
IonCube in Cloud Web Hosting
When you obtain a Linux cloud web hosting package through us, it will be set up on our in-house built cloud hosting platform where ionCube Loader is already installed, so you won't have any problems to manage any script application which needs the instrument to function appropriately. Furthermore, we supply several different versions of PHP, so in case you switch the version, you need to activate ionCube again. Our platform remembers the adjustments you make, and in case you switch back to the earlier version of PHP which was active for your account, ionCube Loader will already be enabled. Both the PHP version and the ionCube instrument can be operated from the PHP Configuration part of our Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. Every change that you make takes literally just a mouse-click and it'll take effect without delay.
IonCube in Semi-dedicated Hosting
IonCube Loader is available with all Linux semi-dedicated hosting packages that we supply, so you will not experience any problems in case you would like to set up and use some script application which requires the software tool so as to function appropriately. Enabling it is as simple as clicking a single button in the Advanced section of the Hepsia Control Panel which comes with all the semi-dedicated accounts and the change will take effect in less than a minute, so you're able to proceed with the application installation without any delays. For the reason that we employ a revolutionary in-house built platform and we support many different versions of PHP at the same time, you will have to enable ionCube every time you switch to a version that you haven't used before. In addition, you'll have the option to enable ionCube loader or even to set a PHP version different from the one in the account as a whole by making a php.ini file in a separate domain or subdomain folder and adding several lines of code in it.
