IonCube Loader is an instrument, that's necessary to run files that are protected with ionCube PHP Encoder. The latter is an app used to make PHP code human unreadable, so as to protect it from reverse engineering and / or unauthorized use. Numerous script-driven applications, in particular community forums, cms and e-commerce solutions are protected with ionCube PHP Encoder, so when you obtain a script and you find that ionCube is on the list of web hosting environment requirements, you have to ensure that your web hosting server has the instrument pre-installed. Although it is not that difficult to install it when you have your own server, it is close to impossible to do that on a shared hosting server due to the fact that the PHP environment shall have to be precompiled and all the clients on the server will be affected.

When you aquire a shared plan from our company, it'll be created on our tailor-made cloud hosting platform where ionCube Loader is already present, so you won't have any problems to run any script app that requires the instrument to run appropriately.

Our platform remembers the adjustments you make, so in case you switch back to the earlier version of PHP that was active for your account, ionCube Loader will already be activated. Both the PHP version and the ionCube tool can be operated through the PHP Configuration area of our Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Any adjustment that you make takes literally just a single click and it'll take effect without delay.
