IonCube Loader is an instrument, that is required to run files which are protected with ionCube PHP Encoder. The latter is an application employed to make PHP code human unreadable, as a way to protect it from reverse engineering and unauthorized usage. Numerous script-driven applications, particularly discussion forums, cms and electronic commerce solutions are encoded with ionCube PHP Encoder, which means that when you get a script and you notice that ionCube is among the website hosting environment requirements, you should make sure that your web hosting server has the tool pre-installed. While it's not that difficult to set it up when you have your own server, it is close to impossible to do that on a shared web hosting server because the PHP environment will have to be precompiled and all of the clients on the server shall be affected.

IonCube in Cloud Hosting

IonCube Loader is available with all of the cloud hosting packages which we supply, so any time you need it to install and execute some script application that requires it, you can enable it with a single click from the Advanced area of the Hepsia Control Panel. Due to the fact that you're able to change the PHP version which is active for your account in the same section, you need to activate the instrument for every new version which you set. If you are more skillful, you're able to use a php.ini file in a domain or subdomain folder and set the PHP version and the status of ionCube Loader for this particular website only, without affecting the whole account. Thus you will be able to operate both new and older script applications for multiple sites inside the same account - something that you cannot do with a lot of other hosting providers available on the market.
