IonCube Loader is an instrument, that is needed to run files that are protected with ionCube PHP Encoder. The latter is an application designed to make PHP code human unreadable, in order to protect it from reverse engineering and / or not authorized use. A number of script-driven apps, especially discussion boards, content management systems and electronic commerce solutions are protected with ionCube PHP Encoder, so when you acquire a script and you notice that ionCube is one of the website hosting environment requirements, you should make sure that your web hosting server has the tool pre-installed. Though it is not that difficult to install it if you have your own server, it is close to impossible to do that on a shared web hosting server for the reason that the PHP environment shall have to be precompiled and all clients on the server will be affected.
IonCube in Hosting
When you obtain a Linux hosting package through our company, it will be created on our tailor-made cloud platform where ionCube Loader is already present, so you will not have any problems to manage any script app which needs the tool to function properly. In addition, we provide a few different versions of PHP, which means that if you switch the version, you will need to activate ionCube again. Our platform remembers the adjustments you make, which means that if you switch back to the earlier release of PHP which was active for your account, ionCube Loader will already be activated. The PHP version and the ionCube instrument can be managed from the PHP Configuration section of our Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. Every change that you do takes literally just a click and it'll take effect right away.
