IonCube Loader is an instrument, that is necessary to run files which are encoded with ionCube PHP Encoder. The aforementioned is an application which is used to make PHP code human unreadable, in order to protect it from reverse engineering and / or illegal use. Numerous script-driven applications, in particular community forums, cms and e-commerce solutions are encrypted with ionCube PHP Encoder, so if you purchase a script and you find that ionCube is among the web hosting environment prerequisites, you have to make sure that your web hosting server has the instrument pre-installed. While it is not that difficult to install it if you have your own server, it's close to impossible to do that on a shared hosting server since the PHP environment should be precompiled and all the clients on the server shall be affected.

IonCube in Cloud Website Hosting

IonCube Loader is provided with all cloud website hosting plans which we provide, so any time you require it in order to install and run some script app that requires it, you can enable it with a click in the Advanced section of your Hepsia Control Panel. Because you can change the PHP release that's active for your account in the same section, you will have to enable the instrument for each new version which you set. In case you are more skillful, you can employ a php.ini file in a domain or subdomain folder and set both the PHP version as well as the status of ionCube Loader for that particular website only, without affecting the whole account. Thus you're able to manage both new and older script applications for multiple websites inside the same account - something that you can't do with a lot of other web hosting service providers on the market.
