A lot of script-driven apps, especially paid cms, encode their files in order to ensure that they will not be reverse engineered or tampered with. The majority of them use an application called ionCube PHP Encoder to do this, so if you obtain a paid script and you intend to set it up in a hosting account, an instrument called ionCube Loader must be present on the server. Without this, you cannot install the script or in case you somehow manage to do this, it will not work efficiently since most of the script code will be encoded to a point where it cannot be interpreted. That's why, you need to ensure that ionCube Loader is set up if you get a new hosting account and you'd like to use some paid web app. If you obtain a shared website hosting account and the instrument is not present, it can't be added as your entire server PHP environment shall have to be compiled again.

IonCube in Web Hosting

If you aquire a web hosting through our company, it'll be set up on our custom-made cloud platform where ionCube Loader is already installed, so you won't have any problems to run any script app that needs the instrument to function appropriately. Furthermore, we supply a few different releases of PHP, so if you change the version, you will have to activate ionCube once again. Our platform remembers the adjustments you make, so when you move back to the previous release of PHP that was active for your account, ionCube Loader will already be turned on. The PHP version and the ionCube tool can be operated from the PHP Configuration section of our Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. Every adjustment that you do takes literally just a click and it takes effect at once.
