IonCube Loader is an instrument, that's needed to run files which are encrypted with ionCube PHP Encoder. The latter is an application employed to make PHP code human unreadable, so as to protect it from reverse engineering and / or not authorized use. A number of script-driven applications, in particular message boards, cms and e-commerce solutions are encrypted with ionCube PHP Encoder, which means that when you acquire a script and you find that ionCube is among the website hosting environment requirements, you have to make sure that your hosting server has the tool pre-installed. While it is not that hard to set it up 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 the clients on the server will be affected.
IonCube in Web Hosting
IonCube Loader is supplied with each and every Linux web hosting service that we provide and you'll be able to activate it anytime with only a few clicks, so you can employ script applications which require it. You'll be able to do this from the PHP Configuration section of your Hepsia Control Panel and all it'll take to enable or deactivate ionCube is to click a single button. The change will take effect within a minute, so you are able to go ahead and install the application that you'd like right away. The very same section allows you to change the PHP version that's active for your account, because we support a number of versions on our hi-tech cloud hosting platform. In case you switch to a version that you have never used to date, you'll need to activate ionCube Loader once again. Experienced users will be able to use a php.ini file in a particular domain folder so as to set a PHP version different from the one for the entire account or enable/disable ionCube Loader.
