IonCube Loader is a tool, that's necessary to run files that are encoded with ionCube PHP Encoder. The aforementioned is an app employed to make PHP code human unreadable, in order to protect it from reverse engineering or not authorized use. A great number of script-driven apps, in particular discussion boards, content management systems and electronic commerce solutions are encrypted with ionCube PHP Encoder, which means that if you purchase a script and you notice that ionCube is one of the hosting environment requirements, you have to make sure that your web hosting server has the tool pre-installed. While it's not that hard to install it when you have your own server, it is close to impossible to do that on a shared hosting server as the PHP environment will have to be precompiled and all clients on the server shall be affected.
IonCube in Cloud Hosting
When you aquire a cloud plan
from our company, it will be created on our custom-built cloud hosting platform where ionCube Loader is already installed, so you will not have any problems to manage any script application that needs the tool to run appropriately. In addition, we provide a few different releases of PHP, so if you switch the version, you need to enable ionCube again. Our system remembers the changes you make, and in case you switch back to the earlier version of PHP which was active for your account, ionCube Loader will already be activated. 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 mouse-click and it takes effect without delay.
IonCube in Semi-dedicated Servers
In case you purchase a semi-dedicated server
package from our company, you'll be able to take advantage of any kind of script-driven app that needs ionCube Loader since the tool is available on all servers which are part of our modern cloud web hosting platform. Furthermore, we support multiple versions of PHP, and if you switch from PHP 4 to 5.2 or 5.3, for instance, you can activate ionCube for that particular version with just a click from your Hepsia Control Panel. Our system will remember your decision, and in case you move back to the earlier version of PHP, the instrument 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 without altering the settings for the entire website hosting account. This can be done by putting a php.ini file within a domain folder with several lines of code.
