IonCube Loader is a software instrument, that is required to run files that are encoded with ionCube PHP Encoder. The aforementioned is an app which is used to make PHP code human unreadable, as a way to protect it from reverse engineering and unauthorized usage. A great number of script-driven applications, in particular discussion forums, cms and electronic commerce solutions are encrypted with ionCube PHP Encoder, so if you buy a script and you notice that ionCube is among the website hosting environment prerequisites, you have to ensure that your web hosting server has the instrument pre-installed. Though it's not that difficult to set it up if you have your own server, it's almost impossible to do that on a shared hosting server for the reason that the PHP environment shall have to be precompiled and all clients on the server shall be affected.

IonCube Loader is supplied with every single cloud website hosting that we offer and you're able to enable it anytime with only a couple of clicks, so you can employ script apps which require it. You are able to do that through the PHP Configuration section of the Hepsia Control Panel and all it takes to enable or disable ionCube is to click a single button.

The exact same section allows you to change the PHP version that is active for your account, because we support several releases on our advanced cloud platform. If you move to a release that you've never used to date, you will have to activate ionCube Loader once again. More advanced users will be able to use a php.ini file in a particular domain folder in order to set a PHP release different from the one for the whole account or enable/disable ionCube Loader.
