Learn what IonCube is and why it’s installed on nearly every server running PHP presently.
IonCube Loader is an instrument, that is required to run files that are protected with ionCube PHP Encoder. The latter is an app employed to make PHP code human unreadable, so as to protect it from reverse engineering and / or illegal use. Numerous script-driven apps, particularly forums, cms and e-commerce solutions are encoded with ionCube PHP Encoder, which means that when you buy a script and you find that ionCube is among the hosting environment requirements, you need to ensure that your hosting server has the instrument pre-installed. Although it is not that hard to set it up if you have your own server, it's close to impossible to do that on a shared web hosting server because the PHP environment shall have to be precompiled and all the clients on the server will be affected.
IonCube in Cloud Website Hosting
If you obtain a Linux cloud website hosting package
through our company, it'll be set up on our custom-made cloud platform where ionCube Loader is already installed, so you will not have any problems to run any script application that needs the instrument to run properly. Furthermore, we offer you a few different releases of PHP, which means that in case you change the version, you will need to enable ionCube again. Our system remembers the changes you make, so if you switch back to the earlier release of PHP that was active for your account, ionCube Loader will already be activated. Both the PHP version as well as the ionCube instrument can be operated from the PHP Configuration part of our Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. Any adjustment that you make takes literally just a mouse-click and it'll take effect right away.
IonCube in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Each semi-dedicated server
account which is generated on our cutting-edge cloud hosting platform has ionCube Loader support, so you will be able to set up any kind of script application that needs the software tool. Then employ it in order to launch and maintain your online presence. You can activate ionCube through the PHP Configuration area of the Control Panel and it will take you no more than a couple of clicks to do this. The change will take effect without delay, so you will be able to proceed and install the necessary script in your account. If you decide to change the PHP version which is active for your account, you will need to activate ionCube for the new version too. Our tailor-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 every domain folder. In the same way, you can enable/disable ionCube Loader for each individual website hosted in your semi-dedicated account.
