IonCube Loader is an instrument, that's necessary to run files which are protected with ionCube PHP Encoder. The aforementioned is an app designed to make PHP code human unreadable, as a way to protect it from reverse engineering and / or not authorized use. Various script-driven applications, particularly discussion boards, cms and electronic commerce solutions are protected with ionCube PHP Encoder, therefore if you buy a script and you find that ionCube is one of the hosting environment requirements, you have to ensure that your hosting server has the instrument pre-installed. Though 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 the clients on the server will be affected.
IonCube in Cloud Web Hosting
If you aquire a Linux cloud web hosting package through us, it'll be set up on our in-house built cloud platform where ionCube Loader is already installed, so you won't have any problems to run any script app which requires the instrument in order to run properly. Furthermore, we offer you several different releases of PHP, so if you change the version, you will need to enable ionCube again. Our system remembers the adjustments you make, so if you move back to the earlier release of PHP that was active for your account, ionCube Loader will already be enabled. The PHP version and the ionCube tool can be managed from the PHP Configuration area of our Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Any change that you make takes literally just a mouse-click and it takes effect at once.
