IonCube Loader is an instrument, that is required to run files which are protected with ionCube PHP Encoder. The latter is an app used to make PHP code human unreadable, as a way to protect it from reverse engineering or not authorized use. Numerous script-driven apps, in particular message boards, cms and e-commerce solutions are encoded with ionCube PHP Encoder, so when you buy a script and you notice that ionCube is among the hosting environment prerequisites, you have to ensure that your hosting server has the tool pre-installed. Though it's not that hard to install it if you have your own server, it's close to impossible to do that on a shared hosting server as the PHP environment will have to be precompiled and all the clients on the server will be affected.

IonCube in Hosting

IonCube Loader is a part of all of the web servers which are a part of our cloud hosting platform, so regardless of the Linux hosting that you get during the signup process, you can enable it through your Hepsia Control Panel. This process is as easy as right-clicking an On/Off button in the Advanced section, so even if this will be your first web hosting account ever, you will not have to do anything complicated. The very same section allows you to select the PHP version for your account (4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4, 5.5, 5.6, 7.0, 7.1, 7.2, 7.3, 7.4, 8.0, 8.1, 8.2), and in case you would like to move to a different version, you only need to activate ionCube Loader for it as well. Because our platform is rather flexible, you can set another PHP version and another status of ionCube by using a php.ini file in every domain folder. If this is something you want to do but you do not have much experience, our 24/7 technical support team shall assist you within minutes.

IonCube in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Each semi-dedicated server account that is created on our outstanding cloud website hosting platform includes ionCube Loader support, and you'll be able to set up any script app which needs the tool. Then employ it to start and maintain your internet presence. You can enable ionCube from the PHP Configuration section of your Control Panel and it will take you only a couple of clicks to do this. The change takes effect without delay, which means that you can proceed and set up the necessary script inside your account. If you'd like to change the PHP version which is active for the account, you will have to activate ionCube for the new release as well. Our in-house made platform also allows you to have a different PHP release for each and every domain or subdomain, that is done with a php.ini file in each domain folder. In the same way, you'll be able to enable/disable ionCube Loader for each site hosted in your semi-dedicated account.
