IonCube Loader is a software tool, that's necessary to run files that are encrypted with ionCube PHP Encoder. The latter is an app that is used to make PHP code human unreadable, as a way to protect it from reverse engineering or unauthorized usage. A lot of script-driven applications, in particular message boards, cms and e-commerce solutions are encoded with ionCube PHP Encoder, therefore when you acquire a script and you notice that ionCube is one of the hosting environment requirements, you need to ensure that your hosting server has the tool pre-installed. While it's not that difficult to set it up if you have your own server, it is almost impossible to do that on a shared hosting server due to the fact that the PHP environment should be precompiled and all of the clients on the server shall be affected.

IonCube in Shared Website Hosting

If you aquire a Linux shared website hosting service from us, it will be created on our in-house built cloud platform where ionCube Loader is already installed, so you won't have any problems to run any script app that requires the instrument so as to function properly. Furthermore, we offer several different versions of PHP, so if you switch the version, you will have to activate ionCube once again. Our system remembers the adjustments you make, which means that if you go 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 operated through the PHP Configuration part of our Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. Each adjustment that you do takes literally just a single click and it'll take effect immediately.

IonCube Loader is available with all the Linux semi-dedicated hosting service that we supply, and you won't experience any problems if you would like to install and use some script application that requires the software instrument to function properly.
