IonCube Loader is a software instrument, that's required to run files which are encoded with ionCube PHP Encoder. The aforementioned is an application designed to make PHP code human unreadable, as a way to protect it from reverse engineering and / or not authorized use. A great number of script-driven applications, in particular discussion forums, content management systems and electronic commerce solutions are protected with ionCube PHP Encoder, therefore if you purchase a script and you notice that ionCube is among the web hosting environment prerequisites, you have to make sure that your website hosting server has the tool pre-installed. While it's not that hard to install it when you have your own server, it's almost impossible to do that on a shared hosting server because the PHP environment shall have to be precompiled and all the clients on the server shall be affected.
IonCube in Cloud Web Hosting
When you aquire a cloud web hosting through our company, it will be set up on our custom-built cloud hosting platform where ionCube Loader is already installed, so you won't have any problems to manage any script application that requires the instrument to function appropriately. Furthermore, we supply a few different versions of PHP, which means that in case you switch the version, you need to activate ionCube once again. Our system remembers the changes you make, so in case you move back to the earlier version of PHP that was active for your account, ionCube Loader will already be enabled. Both the PHP version and the ionCube instrument can be operated from the PHP Configuration area of our Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. Any adjustment that you make takes literally just a mouse-click and it takes effect immediately.
