IonCube Loader is an instrument, that is needed to run files that are encoded with ionCube PHP Encoder. The latter is an app which is used to make PHP code human unreadable, in order to protect it from reverse engineering or not authorized use. A great number of script-driven applications, in particular online forums, content management systems and e-commerce solutions are encrypted with ionCube PHP Encoder, so if you buy a script and you notice that ionCube is one of the website hosting environment requirements, you should ensure that your web hosting server has the instrument pre-installed. While it is not that difficult to set it up if you have your own server, it's almost impossible to do that on a shared hosting server since the PHP environment should be precompiled and all clients on the server will be affected.

IonCube in Shared Web Hosting

When you buy a shared web hosting from our company, it'll be set up on our custom cloud platform where ionCube Loader is already installed, so you won't have any problems to run any script app which requires the tool in order to function appropriately. Furthermore, we provide several different releases of PHP, therefore in case you switch the version, you'll need to enable ionCube once again. Our system remembers the adjustments you make, and if you switch back to the previous release of PHP that was active for your account, ionCube Loader will already be turned on. Both the PHP version and the ionCube instrument can be managed from the PHP Configuration section of our Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. Any change that you do takes literally just a click and it takes effect instantly.

IonCube in Semi-dedicated Hosting

IonCube Loader is provided with all of the semi-dedicated hosting that we supply, and you won't have any problems in case you would like to set up and work with a script application that requires the tool so as to operate properly. Activating it is as easy as clicking a single button inside the Advanced section of the Hepsia Control Panel which comes with all of the semi-dedicated accounts and the change will take effect in less than a minute, which means that you'll be able to proceed with the application set up without delay. Due to the fact that we use an avant-garde in-house made platform and we support many different versions of PHP at the same time, you will have to enable ionCube every time you move to a version that you haven't 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 generating a php.ini file in an individual domain or subdomain folder and adding a few lines of code within it.
