IonCube Loader is a software tool, that's required to run files that are encoded with ionCube PHP Encoder. The latter is an application which is used to make PHP code human unreadable, to protect it from reverse engineering and unauthorized usage. Numerous script-driven apps, particularly community forums, cms and electronic commerce solutions are protected with ionCube PHP Encoder, so when you buy a script and you find that ionCube is on the list of hosting environment prerequisites, you have to make sure that your web hosting server has the instrument pre-installed. Though it is not that difficult to set it up when you have your own server, it is almost impossible to do that on a shared hosting server for the reason that the PHP environment shall have to be precompiled and all the clients on the server shall be affected.

IonCube in Cloud Web Hosting

IonCube Loader is present on all the web servers that are part of our cloud web hosting platform, so regardless of the cloud web hosting that you pick during the signup process, you will be able to enable it from the Hepsia Control Panel. The process is as easy as clicking an On/Off button inside the Advanced section, so even if this is your first hosting account ever, you will not have to do anything complex. The very same section enables you to choose the PHP version for your account (4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4, 5.5), so in case you choose to move to some other version, you just have to activate ionCube Loader for it too. Because our platform is quite flexible, you may even set a different PHP version and another status of ionCube by employing a php.ini file in every domain folder. If this is something you would like to do but you do not have much experience, the 24/7 technical support team will assist you in no time.
