IonCube Loader is an instrument, that is needed to run files which are encoded with ionCube PHP Encoder. The aforementioned is an app used to make PHP code human unreadable, in order to protect it from reverse engineering and / or unauthorized use. Many script-driven applications, in particular forums, cms and electronic commerce solutions are protected with ionCube PHP Encoder, therefore if you get a script and you notice that ionCube is among the website hosting environment requirements, you need to make sure that your hosting server has the instrument pre-installed. Although it's not that hard to install it when 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 will be affected.

IonCube in Hosting

IonCube Loader comes with all the hosting packages which we offer, so when you require it in order to set up and run a script application that needs it, you can enable it with a click inside the Advanced section of the Hepsia Control Panel. Because you are able to change the PHP version which is active for your account from the same section, you'll have to enable the tool for every new version that you set. In case you are more experienced, you're able to take advantage of a php.ini file in a domain or subdomain folder and set the PHP version as well as the status of ionCube Loader for that particular site only, without affecting the entire account. Thus you are able to operate both new and older script applications for multiple websites inside the same account - something that you won't be able to do with many other hosting suppliers on the market.
