IonCube Loader is a tool, that is required to run files which are encoded with ionCube PHP Encoder. The aforementioned is an app which is used to make PHP code human unreadable, to protect it from reverse engineering and unauthorized usage. A great number of script-driven apps, particularly forums, cms and e-commerce solutions are encoded with ionCube PHP Encoder, so when you purchase a script and you notice that ionCube is one of the website hosting environment requirements, you have to ensure that your web hosting server has the instrument pre-installed. While it's not that hard to install it when you have your own server, it's close to impossible to do that on a shared web hosting server due to the fact that the PHP environment should be precompiled and all clients on the server shall be affected.

IonCube in Web Hosting

When you obtain a Linux web hosting from our company, it will be set up on our custom-built cloud hosting platform where ionCube Loader is already installed, so you won't have any problems to manage any script app which needs the tool so as to function properly. In addition, we supply several different versions of PHP, so if you change the version, you'll need to enable ionCube once again. Our platform remembers the adjustments you make, so in case you switch back to the earlier release of PHP which was active for your account, ionCube Loader will already be activated. Both the PHP version and the ionCube instrument can be operated through the PHP Configuration part of our Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. Every change that you do takes literally just a mouse-click and it'll take effect immediately.

IonCube in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you buy a semi-dedicated server plan from our company, you'll be able to take advantage of any kind of script-driven application which needs ionCube Loader since the software tool comes with all the servers that are part of our modern cloud website hosting platform. Furthermore, we support several 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 instance, you can enable ionCube for this particular release with only a click in your Hepsia Control Panel. Our system will remember your decision, so in case you move back to the earlier version of PHP, the tool will already be active. For more tech-savvy users, we also offer the option to choose the PHP version and if ionCube will be active or not for a particular 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.
