IonCube Loader is an instrument, that is required to run files which are encrypted with ionCube PHP Encoder. The aforementioned is an app that is used to make PHP code human unreadable, in order to protect it from reverse engineering and / or not authorized usage. A number of script-driven applications, particularly discussion boards, content management systems and electronic commerce solutions are encrypted with ionCube PHP Encoder, so when you get a script and you find that ionCube is on the list of website hosting environment prerequisites, you need to make sure that your website hosting server has the instrument pre-installed. Although it's not that difficult to set it up if you have your own server, it's almost impossible to do that on a shared web hosting server as the PHP environment should be precompiled and all clients on the server will be affected.
IonCube in Shared Website Hosting
When you get a shared website hosting plan from us, it'll 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 requires the instrument so as to function properly. In addition, we offer a few different releases of PHP, which means that if you change the version, you'll have to activate ionCube again. Our system remembers the changes you make, so in case you move back to the previous version of PHP which was active for your account, ionCube Loader will already be activated. The PHP version as well as the ionCube tool can be operated through the PHP Configuration part of our Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. Each change that you do takes literally just a mouse-click and it will take effect at once.
