IonCube Loader is a software tool, that is needed to run files which are protected with ionCube PHP Encoder. The aforementioned is an app employed to make PHP code human unreadable, so as to protect it from reverse engineering and / or illegal usage. A number of script-driven apps, particularly forums, cms and electronic commerce solutions are encoded with ionCube PHP Encoder, which means that when you purchase a script and you notice that ionCube is one of the hosting environment requirements, you should ensure that your web hosting server has the tool pre-installed. Though it's not that difficult to install it when you have your own server, it's almost impossible to do that on a shared hosting server due to the fact that the PHP environment shall have to be precompiled and all of the clients on the server will be affected.

IonCube in Shared Web Hosting

If you aquire a Linux shared web hosting through us, it will be set up on our in-house made cloud platform where ionCube Loader is already set up, so you won't have any problems to manage any script app that needs the instrument in order to run appropriately. In addition, we supply a few different versions of PHP, therefore if you change the version, you will need to enable ionCube once again. Our system remembers the adjustments you make, which means that when you move back to the previous release of PHP which was active for your account, ionCube Loader will already be turned on. Both the PHP version as well as the ionCube tool can be operated through the PHP Configuration part of our Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. Any change that you make takes literally just a mouse-click and it'll take effect right away.
