IonCube Loader is an instrument, that's required to run files that are encoded with ionCube PHP Encoder. The aforementioned is an application that is used to make PHP code human unreadable, as a way to protect it from reverse engineering or unauthorized usage. Numerous script-driven applications, in particular community forums, cms and e-commerce solutions are protected with ionCube PHP Encoder, which means that when you purchase a script and you find that ionCube is on the list of hosting environment prerequisites, you need to ensure that your website hosting server has the tool pre-installed. Though it's not that difficult to install it if you have your own server, it is almost impossible to do that on a shared hosting server since the PHP environment shall have to be precompiled and all of the clients on the server shall be affected.

When you aquire a shared website hosting through our company, it'll be set up on our custom-made cloud platform where ionCube Loader is already present, so you won't have any problems to manage any script app which requires the instrument in order to function appropriately. We also offer several different versions of PHP, so if you change the version, you'll have to enable ionCube again. Our system remembers the adjustments you make, which means that when you go back to the previous release of PHP which was active for your account, ionCube Loader will already be enabled. Both the PHP version as well as the ionCube tool can be operated from the PHP Configuration area of our Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Each change that you do takes literally just a click and it will take effect without delay.
