IonCube Loader is an instrument, that is required to run files that are encoded with ionCube PHP Encoder. The latter is an application that is used to make PHP code human unreadable, as a way to protect it from reverse engineering and not authorized use. A lot of script-driven applications, particularly discussion boards, cms and e-commerce solutions are encrypted with ionCube PHP Encoder, so when you purchase a script and you find that ionCube is among the hosting environment requirements, you should make sure that your web hosting server has the tool pre-installed. Although it's not that hard to install it if you have your own server, it's close to impossible to do that on a shared web hosting server since the PHP environment will have to be precompiled and all clients on the server will be affected.

IonCube Loader is supplied with every single Linux cloud website hosting that we provide and you can enable it anytime with just a few clicks, so you'll be able to use script apps which require it. You can do that through the PHP Configuration area of your Hepsia Control Panel and all it takes to enable or disable ionCube is to click a single button.

The very same section allows you to change the PHP release which is active for your account, as we support numerous releases on our advanced cloud platform.

Experienced users can use a php.ini file in a specific domain folder in order to set a PHP version different from the one for the whole account or enable/disable ionCube Loader.
