IonCube Loader is a software tool, that is required to run files that are encoded with ionCube PHP Encoder. The latter is an app employed to make PHP code human unreadable, so as to protect it from reverse engineering and illegal usage. Many script-driven applications, especially discussion forums, content management systems and e-commerce solutions are encrypted with ionCube PHP Encoder, so when you obtain a script and you notice that ionCube is among the hosting environment prerequisites, you have to ensure that your website hosting server has the instrument pre-installed. Although it's not that difficult to set it up when you have your own server, it's almost impossible to do that on a shared web hosting server due to the fact that the PHP environment will have to be precompiled and all of the clients on the server shall be affected.

IonCube in Shared Website Hosting

If you aquire a Linux shared website hosting package through us, it will be set up on our custom cloud hosting platform where ionCube Loader is already set up, so you will not have any kind of problems to run any script app that requires the tool so as to function properly. We also provide a few different versions of PHP, which means that in case you change the version, you'll have to activate ionCube again. Our system remembers the changes you make, so in case you move back to the previous version of PHP that was active for your account, ionCube Loader will already be turned on. Both the PHP version and the ionCube instrument can be managed through the PHP Configuration area of our Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Every adjustment that you do takes literally just a click and it will take effect immediately.
