IonCube Loader is an instrument, that is needed to run files that are encrypted with ionCube PHP Encoder. The aforementioned is an app designed to make PHP code human unreadable, as a way to protect it from reverse engineering or illegal usage. Lots of script-driven apps, especially discussion boards, content management systems and electronic commerce solutions are protected with ionCube PHP Encoder, therefore when you get a script and you find that ionCube is on the list of web hosting environment requirements, you should make sure that your web hosting server has the tool pre-installed. Although it's not that hard to install it if you have your own server, it is almost impossible to do that on a shared web hosting server for the reason that the PHP environment will have to be precompiled and all of the clients on the server shall be affected.
IonCube in Cloud Hosting
If you get a cloud hosting from our company, it'll be set up on our in-house made cloud platform where ionCube Loader is already present, so you will not have any problems to manage any script app that needs the instrument to function properly. Furthermore, we offer you a few different releases of PHP, therefore if you switch the version, you'll need to activate ionCube once again. Our system remembers the adjustments you make, and in case you move back to the previous release of PHP that was active for your account, ionCube Loader will already be activated. Both the PHP version as well as the ionCube instrument can be managed through the PHP Configuration area of our Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. Each change that you make takes literally just a mouse-click and it will take effect at once.
