What exactly is IonCube? Why is it present on almost any present-day web server running PHP?
IonCube Loader is an instrument, that is needed to run files which 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 unauthorized usage. Lots of script-driven apps, particularly discussion boards, cms and electronic commerce solutions are encrypted with ionCube PHP Encoder, so when you get a script and you notice that ionCube is among the website hosting environment requirements, you should ensure that your hosting server has the tool pre-installed. Although it's not that hard to set it up 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 shall be affected.
IonCube in Shared Hosting
When you buy a Linux shared hosting package
through our company, it'll be created on our custom-built cloud hosting platform where ionCube Loader is already present, so you won't have any problems to manage any script app that needs the tool in order to run appropriately. In addition, we offer you several different versions of PHP, so if you change the version, you will have to enable ionCube again. Our platform remembers the changes you make, which means that when you go back to the earlier version of PHP which was active for your account, ionCube Loader will already be activated. Both the PHP version and the ionCube tool can be managed from the PHP Configuration part of our Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Every change that you make takes literally just a single click and it will take effect without delay.
IonCube in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Due to the fact that all semi-dedicated server
accounts are created on our advanced cluster platform and ionCube Loader is available on it, you will be able to use any script app that needs this software tool to function properly. With just a few clicks in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel you can activate or deactivate ionCube for the PHP version that is currently active for the account. Because we support several versions of PHP concurrently, you'll need to do this each time you switch to a different release, but if you revert back to a release that you've already used, our system will remember your choice and ionCube Loader will already be activated. When you have several sites in the same account and they require different versions of PHP, you are able to set up a php.ini file in every single domain folder and with a couple of lines of code you're able to define both the PHP release and the status of ionCube irrespective of what is selected for the web hosting account as a whole.
