Find out what IonCube is and also the reason why it’s installed on just about every server running PHP presently.
IonCube Loader is a software instrument, which is needed to run files which are protected with ionCube PHP Encoder. The aforementioned is an application which is used to make PHP code human unreadable, as a way to protect it from reverse engineering and unauthorized use. Plenty of script-driven apps, particularly discussion boards, content management systems and electronic commerce solutions are encoded with ionCube PHP Encoder, which means that if you obtain a script and you find that ionCube is among the website hosting environment prerequisites, you have to ensure that your website hosting server has the instrument pre-installed. Although it is not that hard to install it when you have your own server, it is close to impossible to do that on a shared web hosting server for the reason that the PHP environment should be precompiled and all clients on the server will be affected.

IonCube Loader is installed on all the web servers that are a part of our cloud hosting platform, which means that regardless of the Linux web hosting
that you choose during the signup process, you can activate it through your Hepsia Control Panel. The process is as simple as clicking an On/Off button from the Advanced section, so even if this is your first web hosting account ever, you will not have to do anything complicated. The same section will allow you to pick the PHP release for your account (4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4, 5.5), so if you would like to switch to a different version, you just have to activate ionCube Loader for it too.
