Plenty of script-driven applications, especially paid cms, encrypt their files so as to ensure that they won't be reverse engineered or tampered with. Most of them use an app called ionCube PHP Encoder to do that, so if you buy a paid script and you'd like to install it in a hosting account, a software instrument called ionCube Loader needs to be present on your server. Without this, you cannot install the script or in case you somehow manage to do that, it will not operate efficiently because almost all of the script code will be encrypted to a degree where it cannot be interpreted. That's why, you need to ensure that ionCube Loader is installed when you get a new web hosting account and you would like to employ some paid web application. If you buy a shared website hosting account and the instrument is not present, it cannot be added since the entire server PHP environment shall have to be compiled again.
IonCube in Website Hosting
When you aquire a Linux website hosting through our company, it'll be created on our in-house made cloud platform where ionCube Loader is already set up, so you will not have any problems to manage any script app which needs the tool to run properly. In addition, we offer you a few different releases of PHP, so in case you switch the version, you'll have to enable ionCube once again. Our platform remembers the changes you make, and if you switch back to the previous version of PHP that was active for your account, ionCube Loader will already be activated. Both the PHP version as well as the ionCube instrument can be operated through the PHP Configuration section of our Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. Any adjustment that you make takes literally just a click and it will take effect immediately.
