IonCube Loader is a software instrument, that is needed to run files which are encrypted with ionCube PHP Encoder. The aforementioned is an application which is used to make PHP code human unreadable, as a way to protect it from reverse engineering or unauthorized use. Lots of script-driven applications, especially message boards, content management systems and electronic commerce solutions are protected with ionCube PHP Encoder, so if you acquire a script and you notice that ionCube is on the list of website hosting environment requirements, you should make sure that your website hosting server has the instrument pre-installed. Although it is not that difficult to install it if you have your own server, it is 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 of the clients on the server will be affected.

IonCube in Cloud Hosting

IonCube Loader is provided with all the cloud hosting packages that we provide, so any time you require it to set up and run some script app which needs it, you can activate it with a click inside the Advanced section of the Hepsia Control Panel. Due to the fact that you'll be able to switch the PHP release that is active for your account in the same section, you'll have to enable the instrument for every new version which you set. In case you are more experienced, you will be able to take advantage of a php.ini file in a domain or subdomain folder and set the PHP version as well as the status of ionCube Loader for this particular website only, without affecting the whole account. Thus you'll be able to manage both new and older script apps for multiple websites within the same account - a thing that you won't be able to do with a lot of other hosting providers out there.

Every single semi-dedicated server account which is created on our cutting-edge cloud website hosting platform has ionCube Loader support, so you will be able to install any script application which needs the tool. Then employ it in order to launch and maintain your online presence. You can enable ionCube from the PHP Configuration area of the Control Panel and it will take you only a few clicks to do that.

Our in-house built platform also allows you to have a different PHP release for each domain or subdomain, which is done with a php.ini file in every domain folder. In the same way, you're able to enable/disable ionCube Loader for each website hosted in your semi-dedicated account.
