IonCube Loader is a software tool, that's needed to run files that are encoded with ionCube PHP Encoder. The aforementioned is an application employed to make PHP code human unreadable, in order to protect it from reverse engineering and / or unauthorized usage. A large number of script-driven apps, in particular discussion forums, content management systems and e-commerce solutions are encoded with ionCube PHP Encoder, which means that if you obtain a script and you notice that ionCube is on the list of hosting environment requirements, you should ensure that your website hosting server has the instrument pre-installed. While it is 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 due to the fact that the PHP environment should be precompiled and all clients on the server shall be affected.
IonCube in Cloud Web Hosting
When you get a Linux cloud web hosting service from us, it'll be created on our in-house made cloud platform where ionCube Loader is already present, so you won't have any problems to run any script application which requires the instrument so as to run appropriately. Furthermore, we offer several different versions of PHP, so in case you switch the version, you'll have to enable ionCube once again. Our platform remembers the adjustments you make, and in case you go back to the earlier release of PHP that was active for your account, ionCube Loader will already be turned on. The PHP version as well as the ionCube tool can be managed from the PHP Configuration area of our Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Any adjustment that you do takes literally just a click and it takes effect at once.
IonCube in Semi-dedicated Servers
Each and every semi-dedicated server account that is created on our modern cloud website hosting platform includes ionCube Loader support, so you can set up any kind of script application which requires the software tool. Then employ it to launch and maintain your web presence. You can activate ionCube through the PHP Configuration section of the Control Panel and it will take you only a couple of clicks to do this. The change will take effect immediately, so you're able to go ahead and install the needed script in your account. If you'd like to switch the PHP version that is active for the account, you should activate ionCube for the new version as well. Our custom-made platform also allows you to have a different PHP release for each domain or subdomain, that is done with a php.ini file in every domain folder. In the same way, you can enable/disable ionCube Loader for each individual website hosted in your semi-dedicated account.
