IonCube Loader is an instrument, that is necessary to run files that are encoded with ionCube PHP Encoder. The latter is an app that is used to make PHP code human unreadable, so as to protect it from reverse engineering or not authorized use. Plenty of script-driven apps, particularly community forums, content management systems and electronic commerce solutions are protected with ionCube PHP Encoder, therefore if you purchase a script and you find that ionCube is one of the hosting environment requirements, you need to ensure that your website hosting server has the tool pre-installed. Though 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 for the reason that the PHP environment shall have to be precompiled and all clients on the server will be affected.

IonCube in Cloud Hosting

IonCube Loader is available on all the web servers which are a part of our cloud website hosting platform, so regardless of the cloud hosting that you select during the signup process, you will be able to enable it through your Hepsia Control Panel. The process is as easy as right-clicking an On/Off button from the Advanced section, so even if this will be your first web hosting account ever, you will not need to do anything complicated. The same section allows you to choose the PHP release for your account (4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4, 5.5), and if you choose to move to a different version, you only need to activate ionCube Loader for it as well. Since our platform is rather flexible, you can even set some other PHP version and a different status of ionCube using a php.ini file in each domain folder. If this is something you'd like to do but you do not have much experience, the 24/7 technical support team shall help you quickly.

Then employ it to start and maintain your world wide web presence. You can activate ionCube from the PHP Configuration section of the Control Panel and it'll take you no more than a couple of clicks to do that. Your change takes effect right away, so you can go ahead and install the needed script in your account. If you choose to switch the PHP version that is active for your account, you'll need to activate ionCube for the new version as well. Our tailor-made platform also allows you to have a different PHP release for each and every domain or subdomain, which is done with a php.ini file in each domain folder. In the same way, you can enable/disable ionCube Loader for each individual site hosted in your semi-dedicated account.
