IonCube Loader is an instrument, that is needed to run files that are encoded with ionCube PHP Encoder. The latter is an app which is used to make PHP code human unreadable, in order to protect it from reverse engineering or not authorized use. A great number of script-driven applications, in particular online forums, content management systems and e-commerce solutions are encrypted with ionCube PHP Encoder, so if you buy a script and you notice that ionCube is one of the website hosting environment requirements, you should ensure that your web hosting server has the instrument pre-installed. While it is not that difficult to set it up if you have your own server, it's almost impossible to do that on a shared hosting server since the PHP environment should be precompiled and all clients on the server will be affected.

IonCube in Shared Web Hosting

When you buy a shared web hosting from our company, it'll be set up on our custom cloud platform where ionCube Loader is already installed, so you won't have any problems to run any script app which requires the tool in order to function appropriately. Furthermore, we provide several different releases of PHP, therefore in case you switch the version, you'll need to enable ionCube once again. Our system remembers the adjustments you make, and if you switch back to the previous release of PHP that was active for your account, ionCube Loader will already be turned on. Both the PHP version and the ionCube instrument can be managed from the PHP Configuration section of our Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. Any change that you do takes literally just a click and it takes effect instantly.
