IonCube Loader is a tool, that's necessary to run files that are encrypted with ionCube PHP Encoder. The latter is an app that is used to make PHP code human unreadable, so as to protect it from reverse engineering and unauthorized usage. Various script-driven applications, particularly forums, cms and e-commerce solutions are encrypted with ionCube PHP Encoder, which means that if you obtain a script and you find that ionCube is among the web hosting environment requirements, you need to make sure that your hosting server has the instrument pre-installed. While it's not that hard to set it up if you have your own server, it is almost impossible to do that on a shared hosting server since the PHP environment should be precompiled and all of the clients on the server will be affected.

IonCube Loader is supplied with each and every cloud hosting that we supply and you're able to enable it anytime with just a couple of clicks, so you'll be able to work with script applications that need it. You're able to do that from the PHP Configuration area of your Hepsia Control Panel and all it will take to enable or deactivate ionCube is to click a button. The change takes effect in a minute, therefore you'll be able to go ahead and set up the application that you need without delay. The same section will allow you to switch the PHP version which is active for your account, because we support a number of releases on our leading-edge cloud platform.
