Lots of script-driven applications, especially paid cms, encode their files in order to ensure that they won't be reverse engineered or tampered with. Most of them use an application named ionCube PHP Encoder to do that, so if you obtain a paid script and you'd like to set it up in a hosting account, a software instrument known as ionCube Loader must be present on the server. Without having it, you can't install the script or in case you somehow find a way to do this, it won't work properly for the reason that almost all of the script code will be encrypted to a degree where it can't be interpreted. That is why, you need to ensure that ionCube Loader is present when you get a fresh hosting account and you'd like to take advantage of some paid web application. If you purchase a shared web hosting account and the instrument is not present, it cannot be added since the whole server PHP environment will have to be compiled again.
IonCube in Cloud Web Hosting
When you get a cloud web hosting from our company, it'll be created on our in-house built cloud platform where ionCube Loader is already installed, so you will not have any kind of problems to run any script app which requires the tool so as to function appropriately. In addition, we offer you several different versions of PHP, which means that in case you switch the version, you will have to activate ionCube again. Our system remembers the changes you make, and if you switch back to the previous version of PHP which was active for your account, ionCube Loader will already be enabled. Both the PHP version and the ionCube tool can be managed through the PHP Configuration part of our Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. Each adjustment that you do takes literally just a single click and it takes effect instantly.
