IonCube Loader is a tool, which is required to run files which are protected with ionCube PHP Encoder. The aforementioned is an app used to make PHP code human unreadable, so as to protect it from reverse engineering and unauthorized use. Various script-driven applications, in particular discussion forums, cms and electronic commerce solutions are encrypted with ionCube PHP Encoder, so when you get a script and you notice that ionCube is on the list of website hosting environment prerequisites, you have to ensure that your hosting server has the tool pre-installed. While it is not that difficult to install it when you have your own server, it's almost impossible to do that on a shared hosting server due to the fact that the PHP environment shall have to be precompiled and all the clients on the server shall be affected.

IonCube in Shared Hosting

If you buy a Linux shared hosting from us, it will be created on our custom-built cloud platform where ionCube Loader is already installed, so you will not have any kind of problems to run any script application which requires the tool to function appropriately. We also offer you a few different releases of PHP, so if you switch the version, you need to activate ionCube once again. Our platform remembers the adjustments you make, and when you go back to the earlier release of PHP that was active for your account, ionCube Loader will already be turned on. Both the PHP version as well as the ionCube instrument can be operated from the PHP Configuration section of our Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Every change that you make takes literally just a single click and it'll take effect immediately.

IonCube in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Each semi-dedicated server account which is set up on our modern cloud hosting platform has ionCube Loader support, which means that you'll be able to set up any kind of script application that needs the tool. Then use it in order to launch and maintain your internet presence. You can activate ionCube from the PHP Configuration area of your Control Panel and it will take you only a couple of clicks to do that. The change will take effect instantly, which means that you will be able to go ahead and install the needed script in your account. If you decide to change the PHP version that's active for the account, you should activate ionCube for the new version too. Our in-house built platform also allows you to have a different PHP version for each and every domain or subdomain, that is done with a php.ini file in each domain folder. In the same way, you will be able to enable/disable ionCube Loader for each website hosted in your semi-dedicated account.
