IonCube Loader is an instrument, that is necessary to run files which are encoded with ionCube PHP Encoder. The latter is an app that is used to make PHP code human unreadable, in order to protect it from reverse engineering and unauthorized use. A lot of script-driven apps, especially online forums, cms and electronic commerce solutions are protected with ionCube PHP Encoder, therefore when you purchase a script and you find that ionCube is one of the hosting environment prerequisites, you have to ensure that your web hosting server has the instrument pre-installed. Though it's not that hard to set it up when you have your own server, it's close to impossible to do that on a shared web hosting server because the PHP environment shall have to be precompiled and all of the clients on the server will be affected.
IonCube in Shared Website Hosting
IonCube Loader is provided with all of the shared website hosting packages that we provide, so every time you require it in order to install and run a script application that needs it, you can activate it with a single click in the Advanced area of your Hepsia Control Panel. As you'll be able to change the PHP release which is active for your account in the same section, you will need to enable the instrument for every new version that you set. If you're more experienced, you are able to use a php.ini file in a domain or subdomain folder and set both the PHP version as well as the status of ionCube Loader for this particular site only, without affecting the whole account. This way you are able to manage both new and older script apps for multiple websites within the same account - something that you cannot do with many other hosting suppliers available on the market.
