IonCube Loader is a software tool, which is necessary to run files which are protected with ionCube PHP Encoder. The aforementioned is an app that is used to make PHP code human unreadable, so as to protect it from reverse engineering and illegal use. Many script-driven applications, particularly community forums, content management systems and e-commerce solutions are encrypted with ionCube PHP Encoder, therefore when you purchase a script and you find that ionCube is among the hosting environment prerequisites, you have to ensure that your website hosting server has the instrument pre-installed. While it's not that difficult to install it when you have your own server, it's almost impossible to do that on a shared hosting server due to the fact that the PHP environment will have to be precompiled and all of the clients on the server will be affected.
IonCube in Hosting
IonCube Loader is supplied with each and every hosting that we supply and you're able to enable it anytime with just a couple of clicks, so you'll be able to use script apps which need it. You will be able to do that through the PHP Configuration area of the Hepsia Control Panel and all it takes to activate or disable ionCube is to click a single button. The change takes effect in a minute, so you're able to go ahead and install the app that you would like right away. The very same section will allow you to switch the PHP version which is active for your account, because we support multiple releases on our cutting-edge cloud platform. In case you move to a version that you have never used so far, you'll have to enable ionCube Loader once again. More advanced users can use a php.ini file in a particular domain folder to set a PHP release different from the one for the entire account or enable/disable ionCube Loader.
