IonCube Loader is a software instrument, which is required to run files that are protected with ionCube PHP Encoder. The aforementioned is an application that is used to make PHP code human unreadable, to protect it from reverse engineering or not authorized usage. Various script-driven applications, especially online forums, content management systems and e-commerce solutions are encrypted with ionCube PHP Encoder, so when you acquire a script and you notice that ionCube is on the list of hosting environment requirements, you should make sure that your hosting server has the instrument pre-installed. Although it's not that difficult to set it up when you have your own server, it is almost impossible to do that on a shared web hosting server due to the fact that the PHP environment shall have to be precompiled and all of the clients on the server will be affected.

IonCube in Cloud Hosting

If you obtain a cloud hosting through our company, it will be set up on our custom-made cloud platform where ionCube Loader is already installed, so you won't have any problems to manage any script app that requires the instrument to function appropriately. In addition, we provide several different releases of PHP, therefore if you switch the version, you need to enable ionCube again. Our system remembers the changes you make, which means that when you switch back to the earlier release of PHP which 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 web hosting Control Panel. Every adjustment that you make takes literally just a mouse-click and it takes effect instantly.

IonCube Loader is available with all of the semi-dedicated servers that we offer, so you won't experience any kind of problems in case you would like to install and work with a script app that requires the software instrument to function appropriately. Enabling it is as easy as clicking a single button in the Advanced area of the Hepsia Control Panel which comes with all the semi-dedicated accounts and the change will take effect in less than a minute, which means that you can proceed with the app installation without any delays.
