IonCube Loader is a software tool, that is needed to run files which are encrypted with ionCube PHP Encoder. The aforementioned is an app used to make PHP code human unreadable, so as to protect it from reverse engineering and unauthorized usage. A number of script-driven apps, especially discussion forums, cms and electronic commerce solutions are encoded with ionCube PHP Encoder, therefore when you acquire a script and you find that ionCube is on the list of website hosting environment prerequisites, you should make sure that your website 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 web hosting server for the reason that the PHP environment will have to be precompiled and all the clients on the server shall be affected.

When you obtain a Linux cloud hosting from us, it'll be created on our in-house built cloud hosting platform where ionCube Loader is already set up, so you won't have any kind of problems to run any script application which requires the tool in order to function appropriately.

Our platform remembers the changes you make, which means that when you go back to the previous release of PHP which was active for your account, ionCube Loader will already be turned on. The PHP version and the ionCube tool can be operated through the PHP Configuration part of our Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Every change that you do takes literally just a click and it takes effect instantly.
