IonCube Loader is a software tool, that's needed to run files that are encrypted with ionCube PHP Encoder. The latter is an application that is used to make PHP code human unreadable, to protect it from reverse engineering or illegal usage. A great number of script-driven applications, in particular message boards, content management systems and electronic commerce solutions are protected with ionCube PHP Encoder, so if you obtain a script and you find that ionCube is one of the hosting environment prerequisites, you should ensure that your hosting server has the tool pre-installed. While it's not that difficult to install it if you have your own server, it's close to impossible to do that on a shared web hosting server because the PHP environment will have to be precompiled and all clients on the server shall be affected.
IonCube in Shared Hosting
If you buy a shared hosting from our company, it'll be set up on our in-house built cloud hosting platform where ionCube Loader is already set up, so you won't have any kind of problems to run any script application which requires the instrument in order to run appropriately. We also offer you a few different releases of PHP, so if you change the version, you need to activate ionCube again. Our platform remembers the adjustments you make, so when you move back to the previous release of PHP that was active for your account, ionCube Loader will already be enabled. The PHP version as well as the ionCube tool can be managed from the PHP Configuration area of our Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. Each change that you do takes literally just a mouse-click and it takes effect right away.
