A lot of script-driven apps, especially paid content management systems, encrypt their files to ensure that they won't be reverse engineered or tampered with. Many of them use an app named ionCube PHP Encoder to do that, so when you obtain a paid script and you wish to install it in a hosting account, a software instrument known as ionCube Loader must be present on your server. Without having it, you can't install the script or in case you somehow find a way to do this, it will not function efficiently due to the fact that almost all of the script code will be encoded to a degree where it can't be interpreted. That's why, you should make sure that ionCube Loader is present if you get a new web hosting account and you would like to employ some paid web app. If you purchase a shared website hosting account and the tool is not present, it can't be added since the whole server PHP environment shall have to be compiled again.
IonCube in Cloud Web Hosting
When you get a Linux cloud web hosting package through us, it will be created on our in-house built cloud platform where ionCube Loader is already installed, so you will not have any problems to manage any script app that requires the instrument in order to run properly. In addition, we offer you a few different versions of PHP, which means that if you change the version, you'll have to enable ionCube again. Our platform remembers the adjustments you make, and if you move back to the earlier release of PHP that was active for your account, ionCube Loader will already be turned on. Both the PHP version as well as the ionCube tool can be managed through the PHP Configuration section of our Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Any adjustment that you do takes literally just a single click and it'll take effect at once.
