IonCube Loader is a software tool, that's required to run files which are protected with ionCube PHP Encoder. The aforementioned is an app used to make PHP code human unreadable, to protect it from reverse engineering and / or unauthorized usage. A great number of script-driven apps, in particular message boards, content management systems and electronic commerce solutions are protected with ionCube PHP Encoder, therefore if you acquire a script and you find that ionCube is one of the web hosting environment requirements, you have to ensure that your website hosting server has the tool pre-installed. Though it's not that difficult to set it up when you have your own server, it is close to impossible to do that on a shared hosting server since the PHP environment will have to be precompiled and all of the clients on the server shall be affected.
IonCube in Shared Website Hosting
When you purchase a Linux shared website hosting from our company, it will be set up on our in-house made cloud platform where ionCube Loader is already present, so you will not have any problems to run any script app that needs the tool so as to function appropriately. Furthermore, we offer several different versions of PHP, therefore in case you change the version, you'll have to activate ionCube again. Our system remembers the adjustments you make, so in case you move back to the previous release of PHP which was active for your account, ionCube Loader will already be turned on. The PHP version and the ionCube tool can be managed from the PHP Configuration part of our Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Each change that you do takes literally just a single click and it takes effect right away.
