IonCube Loader is a tool, which is necessary to run files that are encoded 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 and illegal usage. A lot of script-driven apps, especially online forums, content management systems and electronic commerce solutions are encrypted with ionCube PHP Encoder, so if you buy a script and you notice that ionCube is on the list of web hosting environment requirements, you should make sure that your hosting server has the instrument pre-installed. Though 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 because the PHP environment shall have to be precompiled and all of the clients on the server will be affected.

IonCube in Cloud Website Hosting

IonCube Loader is available with all the cloud website hosting packages which we supply, so when you need it to install and execute some script application that requires it, you can enable it with a click inside the Advanced area of your Hepsia Control Panel. Because you're able to change the PHP release which is active for your account from the same section, you will have to activate the tool for any new version which you set. When you're more experienced, 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 that particular website only, without affecting the whole account. Thus you're able to operate both new and older script applications for multiple sites inside the same account - a thing that you cannot do with a lot of other website hosting suppliers on the market.

IonCube in Semi-dedicated Hosting

IonCube Loader is available with all of the semi-dedicated services that we offer, so you won't experience any kind of problems in case you'd like to install and use a script app that requires the software instrument in order to operate appropriately. Enabling it is as easy as clicking a single button in the Advanced section of the Hepsia Control Panel that comes with all of the semi-dedicated accounts and the change shall take effect in less than a minute, so you'll be able to move forward with the application installation without any delays. Because we employ a hi-tech in-house built platform and we support a number of versions of PHP simultaneously, you'll need to activate ionCube every time you switch to a version that you haven't used before. In addition, you'll have the option to activate ionCube loader or even to set a PHP version different from the one in the account as a whole by generating a php.ini file in a separate domain or subdomain folder and adding a few lines of code in it.
