IonCube Loader is an instrument, that is necessary to run files that are encrypted with ionCube PHP Encoder. The aforementioned is an application used to make PHP code human unreadable, to protect it from reverse engineering or not authorized usage. Numerous script-driven apps, particularly discussion forums, content management systems and electronic commerce solutions are encrypted with ionCube PHP Encoder, therefore when you get a script and you notice that ionCube is among the web hosting environment requirements, you have to make sure 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 as the PHP environment will have to be precompiled and all clients on the server shall be affected.
IonCube in Shared Web Hosting
IonCube Loader is supplied with each shared web hosting service that we provide and you will be able to enable it at any time with only a few clicks, so you will be able to take advantage of script applications which require it. You'll be able to do that from the PHP Configuration area of your Hepsia Control Panel and all it will take to enable or deactivate ionCube is to click a single button. The change will take effect within a minute, which means that you're able to go ahead and install the application that you'd like without delay. The very same section allows you to change the PHP version which is active for your account, as we support numerous versions on our cutting-edge cloud platform. If you switch to a release that you haven't used so far, you will have to activate ionCube Loader once again. Experienced users can use a php.ini file in a particular domain folder in order to set a PHP release different from the one for the whole account or enable/disable ionCube Loader.
IonCube in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Because all the semi-dedicated server accounts are created on our advanced cluster platform and ionCube Loader is available on it, you shall be able to use any script app which requires the tool so as to run effectively. With just a few clicks in your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel you will be able to activate or deactivate ionCube for the PHP version that's currently active for your account. As we support several releases of PHP concurrently, you will need to do that any time you move to a new version, and when you revert back to a version that you've already used, our system will remember your choice and ionCube Loader will already be active. If you have multiple websites inside the same account and they require different versions of PHP, you are able to create a php.ini file in each and every domain folder and with a couple of lines of code you can define both the PHP release plus the status of ionCube regardless of what is selected for the web hosting account altogether.
