The hosting server requirements to use DLGuard are as follows:
that's it! The far majority of website hosts will offer these features.
Do I need Linux or Windows hosting?
Any server type is fine!
We recommend using Linux/Unix hosting, however DLGuard will work on most Windows servers that allows the use of the PHP standard Mail() function and also allow you to create a MySQL database.
So even if you do have a Windows server, DLGuard should work fine on it.
If you are looking for a new host, we recommend HostGator. HostGator is full compatible with DLGuard, and offers quality cPanel hosting for a very reasonable price.
HostGator's customer support is quite good, which can sometimes be hard to find in a hosting provider.
IonCube Loaders is special software that runs on your website to allow DLGuard to run. It is free, and comes with DLGuard.
Many webhosts will already have IonCube Loaders running on your server, and the ones that don't usually allow DLGuard to install them for you automatically.
If you're worried about this, then you can simply email your hosting provider and ask them if they have IonCube Loaders installed on your site, or if they allow IonCube encrypted scripts to run. There shouldn't be a problem.
There are two ways to install DLGuard:

It's one of the easiest script installations that you'll ever do!
