IonCube Loader is a software tool, which is required to run files that are encrypted with ionCube PHP Encoder. The aforementioned is an application employed to make PHP code human unreadable, so as to protect it from reverse engineering and unauthorized use. A lot of script-driven applications, in particular discussion boards, cms and e-commerce solutions are encrypted with ionCube PHP Encoder, which means that when you purchase a script and you notice that ionCube is on the list of web hosting environment requirements, you need to make sure that your hosting server has the tool pre-installed. Though it's not that hard to install it when you have your own server, it's close to impossible to do that on a shared hosting server since the PHP environment will have to be precompiled and all clients on the server will be affected.

IonCube in Cloud Website Hosting

If you aquire a cloud website hosting through us, it will be set up on our custom-built cloud platform where ionCube Loader is already installed, so you will not have any problems to run any script application which needs the instrument to function appropriately. Furthermore, we provide a few different versions of PHP, therefore if you switch the version, you'll need to enable ionCube once again. Our system remembers the changes you make, so when you move back to the previous release of PHP which was active for your account, ionCube Loader will already be enabled. The PHP version as well as the ionCube instrument can be operated from the PHP Configuration area of our Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. Any change that you do takes literally just a single click and it will take effect right away.
