IonCube Loader is an instrument, that's needed to run files which 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 or not authorized usage. Numerous script-driven applications, particularly discussion forums, content management systems and e-commerce solutions are encrypted with ionCube PHP Encoder, so when you get a script and you find that ionCube is one of the website hosting environment prerequisites, you need to make sure that your web hosting server has the tool pre-installed. Although it is not that difficult to set it up when you have your own server, it is close to impossible to do that on a shared hosting server for the reason that the PHP environment will have to be precompiled and all of the clients on the server shall be affected.
IonCube in Cloud Web Hosting
If you obtain a cloud web hosting through our company, it'll be created on our custom-made cloud platform where ionCube Loader is already present, so you will not have any problems to run any script application which needs the instrument to function properly. Furthermore, we supply a few different versions of PHP, which means that if you switch the version, you will need to activate ionCube again. Our system remembers the changes you make, and in case you move back to the earlier release of PHP which was active for your account, ionCube Loader will already be enabled. Both the PHP version as well as the ionCube tool can be managed through the PHP Configuration section of our Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. Every adjustment that you make takes literally just a single click and it will take effect immediately.
IonCube in Semi-dedicated Servers
In case you obtain a semi-dedicated server plan from us, you can use any kind of script-driven app which requires ionCube Loader for the reason that the software tool is available on all servers that are part of our state-of-the-art cloud web hosting platform. Furthermore, we support several versions of PHP, therefore if you move from PHP 4 to 5.2 or 5.3, for example, you can enable ionCube for that particular release with only a click in your Hepsia Control Panel. Our platform will remember your decision, and if you move back to the previous release of PHP, the software tool will already be active. For more tech-savvy users, we also offer the option to pick the PHP version and whether ionCube will be active or not for a specific domain name without altering the settings for the entire website hosting account. This can be done by placing a php.ini file in a domain folder with several lines of program code.
