IonCube Loader is a tool, that is necessary to run files which are encoded with ionCube PHP Encoder. The aforementioned is an application designed to make PHP code human unreadable, in order to protect it from reverse engineering or illegal usage. A number of script-driven applications, in particular community forums, content management systems and e-commerce solutions are protected with ionCube PHP Encoder, therefore if you acquire a script and you find that ionCube is on the list of web hosting environment requirements, you have to make sure that your hosting server has the instrument pre-installed. Although it is not that hard to install it if you have your own server, it is close to impossible to do that on a shared web hosting server since the PHP environment should be precompiled and all clients on the server shall be affected.

IonCube in Shared Web Hosting

When you obtain a Linux shared web hosting from us, it'll be created on our custom-made cloud hosting platform where ionCube Loader is already present, so you won't have any problems to manage any script application which requires the tool so as to run appropriately. In addition, we supply several different versions of PHP, so in case you change the version, you'll have to enable ionCube again. Our platform remembers the changes you make, and when you switch back to the earlier version of PHP which was active for your account, ionCube Loader will already be enabled. Both the PHP version as well as the ionCube instrument can be managed from the PHP Configuration section of our Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. Any change that you do takes literally just a single click and it will take effect right away.
