Discover what IonCube is and also the reasons why it’s set up on virtually every server running PHP these days.
In order to avoid the reverse engineering of script applications, many developers encrypt their code with instruments like ionCube PHP Encoder and make it human unreadable. The latter is valid for paid apps in particular, because anyone would be able to use and modify the unencrypted code without having to pay the required license fees. In case you buy web software encrypted with ionCube PHP Encoder, you will be able to use it without a problem as long as an instrument named ionCube Loader is available on the web hosting server. This loader allows you to run encoded files and you will often notice it as one of the prerequisites for a given script application to be installed. Due to the fact that the encrypted files are already precompiled, they're normally executed more quickly and this will raise the general speed of your website.
IonCube in Cloud Hosting
IonCube Loader is available with all the cloud hosting
plans which we provide, so if you require it to install and execute a script app that needs it, you can activate it with a click in the Advanced area of the Hepsia Control Panel. Because you are able to change the PHP release that is active for your account in the same section, you'll have to activate the instrument for every new version that you set. When you're more skillful, you can use a php.ini file in a domain or subdomain folder and set the PHP version and the status of ionCube Loader for this particular site only, without affecting the whole account. In this way you'll be able to operate both new and older script apps for multiple sites within the same account - something that you cannot do with numerous other website hosting suppliers out there.

Your change will take effect without delay, so you're able to go ahead and set up the necessary script in your account. If you decide to switch the PHP version that is active for the account, you'll have to enable ionCube for the new release as well. Our custom-made platform also allows you to have a different PHP version for each domain or subdomain, which is done with a php.ini file in each domain folder. In the same way, you'll be able to enable/disable ionCube Loader for each website hosted in your semi-dedicated account.
