IonCube Loader is a software tool, that is needed to run files that are encrypted with ionCube PHP Encoder. The latter is an application employed to make PHP code human unreadable, in order to protect it from reverse engineering or illegal use. A great number of script-driven apps, in particular online forums, content management systems and electronic commerce solutions are encoded with ionCube PHP Encoder, therefore when you obtain a script and you find that ionCube is one of the hosting environment prerequisites, you need to make sure that your web hosting server has the instrument pre-installed. Though it's not that hard to install it if you have your own server, it is close to impossible to do that on a shared hosting server because the PHP environment shall have to be precompiled and all of the clients on the server shall be affected.
IonCube in Shared Hosting
If you aquire a Linux shared hosting package from us, it will be set up on our custom-made cloud hosting platform where ionCube Loader is already set up, so you will not have any problems to manage any script application which needs the tool so as to function appropriately. Furthermore, we supply a few different releases of PHP, therefore if you switch the version, you will need to activate ionCube once again. Our platform remembers the adjustments you make, so when you go back to the previous version of PHP which was active for your account, ionCube Loader will already be enabled. Both the PHP version as well as the ionCube instrument can be operated from the PHP Configuration area of our Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Each change that you do takes literally just a single click and it'll take effect at once.

Then employ it to start and maintain your world wide web presence.
