IonCube Loader is a tool, which is necessary to run files which are encrypted with ionCube PHP Encoder. The aforementioned is an app that is used to make PHP code human unreadable, in order to protect it from reverse engineering or unauthorized usage. A large number of script-driven apps, especially discussion forums, content management systems and electronic commerce solutions are encrypted with ionCube PHP Encoder, so if you get a script and you find that ionCube is one of the web hosting environment requirements, you should ensure that your hosting server has the tool pre-installed. Although it is 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 should be precompiled and all clients on the server will be affected.

IonCube in Shared Web Hosting

IonCube Loader is available with all shared web hosting packages which we offer, so if you require it in order to set up and run some script application that needs it, you can activate it with a click from the Advanced section of the Hepsia Control Panel. As you can switch the PHP version that's active for your account from the same section, you'll have to activate the instrument for any new version that you set. If you're more skillful, you can take advantage of a php.ini file in a domain or subdomain folder and set both the PHP version and the status of ionCube Loader for this particular website only, without affecting the whole account. This way you can operate both new and older script apps for multiple websites in the same account - a thing that you can't do with many other website hosting providers available on the market.
