IonCube Loader is a software tool, that's necessary to run files that are encoded with ionCube PHP Encoder. The aforementioned is an application employed to make PHP code human unreadable, in order to protect it from reverse engineering and / or unauthorized usage. Numerous script-driven applications, particularly online forums, content management systems and electronic commerce solutions are protected with ionCube PHP Encoder, which means that when you acquire a script and you find that ionCube is one of the web hosting environment prerequisites, you should ensure that your web hosting server has the tool pre-installed. Though it's not that difficult to install it when you have your own server, it's almost impossible to do that on a shared web hosting server since the PHP environment will have to be precompiled and all of the clients on the server will be affected.

IonCube in Website Hosting

IonCube Loader is supplied with each and every website hosting plan that we provide and you're able to activate it at any time with only a couple of clicks, so you can employ script applications that require it. You will be able to do that from the PHP Configuration section of your Hepsia Control Panel and all it will take to enable or deactivate ionCube is to click a single button. The change takes effect within a minute, so you're able to proceed and install the app that you need right away. The very same section allows you to change the PHP version that's active for your account, as we support a number of releases on our cutting-edge cloud hosting 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 so as to set a PHP release different from the one for the entire account or enable/disable ionCube Loader.
