IonCube Loader is an instrument, that's required to run files which are encrypted with ionCube PHP Encoder. The latter is an application which is used to make PHP code human unreadable, as a way to protect it from reverse engineering and illegal use. Numerous script-driven applications, particularly discussion boards, content management systems and e-commerce solutions are encoded with ionCube PHP Encoder, therefore when you purchase a script and you notice that ionCube is among the web hosting environment prerequisites, you have to make sure that your hosting server has the tool pre-installed. Although it is not that difficult to install it when you have your own server, it is 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 the clients on the server shall be affected.
IonCube in Hosting
When you buy a Linux hosting through us, it will be set up on our in-house built cloud platform where ionCube Loader is already installed, so you will not have any kind of problems to run any script application that needs the instrument so as to run properly. In addition, we supply a few different releases of PHP, which means that if you change the version, you will have to enable ionCube again. Our system remembers the adjustments you make, so when you move back to the earlier release of PHP which was active for your account, ionCube Loader will already be turned on. The PHP version and the ionCube tool can be operated through the PHP Configuration area of our Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Every change that you make takes literally just a mouse-click and it takes effect immediately.
IonCube in Semi-dedicated Hosting
IonCube Loader is available with all the Linux semi-dedicated hosting packages that we provide, so you will not have any kind of problems if you would like to set up and use a script application which requires the instrument in order to operate properly. Enabling it is as simple as clicking a button inside the Advanced area of the Hepsia Control Panel that comes with all the semi-dedicated accounts and the change will take effect in less than a minute, therefore you'll be able to move forward with the app set up without delay. For the reason that we employ a cutting-edge custom platform and we support multiple versions of PHP at the same time, you will need to activate ionCube every time you switch to a version that you have not used before. You will also 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 an individual domain or subdomain folder and adding a couple of lines of program code within it.
