IonCube Loader is a software tool, that is necessary to run files which are encoded with ionCube PHP Encoder. The aforementioned is an application used to make PHP code human unreadable, to protect it from reverse engineering and unauthorized use. A great number of script-driven apps, especially forums, content management systems and electronic commerce solutions are encrypted with ionCube PHP Encoder, which means that if you obtain a script and you find that ionCube is one of the hosting environment requirements, you need to make sure that your hosting server has the tool pre-installed. While 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 hosting server for the reason that the PHP environment should be precompiled and all of the clients on the server will be affected.

IonCube in Hosting

IonCube Loader comes with all hosting packages which we offer, so any time you need it to set up and execute a script application that needs it, you can enable it with a click in the Advanced area of the Hepsia Control Panel. Because you'll be able to change the PHP version which is active for your account from the same section, you will need to enable the instrument for every new version which you set. If you are more skillful, you will be able to take advantage of a php.ini file in a domain or subdomain folder and set both the PHP version and the status of ionCube Loader for this particular site only, without affecting the entire account. Thus you'll be able to manage both new and older script apps for multiple sites in the same account - a thing that you cannot do with a lot of other web hosting suppliers on the market.

Our custom-made platform also allows you to have a different PHP version for each and every domain or subdomain, which is done with a php.ini file in each domain folder.
