IonCube Loader is an instrument, that's needed to run files that are protected with ionCube PHP Encoder. The aforementioned is an application employed to make PHP code human unreadable, to protect it from reverse engineering and / or not authorized use. Lots of script-driven applications, particularly discussion boards, content management systems and e-commerce solutions are encoded with ionCube PHP Encoder, so if you buy a script and you find that ionCube is one of the website hosting environment requirements, you have to make sure that your hosting server has the instrument pre-installed. Although 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 web hosting server due to the fact that the PHP environment will have to be precompiled and all of the clients on the server shall be affected.

Our system remembers the adjustments you make, so in case you switch back to the previous version of PHP that was active for your account, ionCube Loader will already be turned on. The PHP version as well as the ionCube instrument can be operated through the PHP Configuration part of our Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. Each change that you do takes literally just a single click and it takes effect instantly.
