IonCube Loader is a software instrument, that's necessary to run files that are encrypted with ionCube PHP Encoder. The aforementioned is an application employed to make PHP code human unreadable, in order to protect it from reverse engineering and illegal usage. Various script-driven apps, in particular discussion boards, content management systems and electronic commerce solutions are encoded with ionCube PHP Encoder, which means that if you buy a script and you find that ionCube is on the list of hosting environment prerequisites, you have to make sure that your hosting server has the instrument pre-installed. Though it's not that hard to set it up if you have your own server, it's close to 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.

IonCube in Shared Hosting

IonCube Loader is provided with all the shared hosting plans which we supply, so when you require it in order to install and execute a script application which needs it, you can enable it with a single click inside the Advanced section of your Hepsia Control Panel. Due to the fact that you're able to switch the PHP release which is active for your account in the same section, you need to enable the tool for every new version that you set.
