A lot of script-driven apps, especially paid cms, encrypt their files so as to ensure that they will not be reverse engineered or tampered with. Many of them use an application called ionCube PHP Encoder to do this, so, in case you purchase a paid script and you want to install it in a web hosting account, an instrument called ionCube Loader has to be present on the server. Without this, you can't install the script or if you somehow find a way to do this, it will not operate effectively as most of the script code will be encoded to a degree where it can't be interpreted. That's why, you need to make sure that ionCube Loader is installed when you get a new website hosting account and you wish to use some paid web application. If you obtain a shared web hosting account and the tool is not present, it can't be added as your entire server PHP environment shall have to be compiled again.
IonCube in Cloud Web Hosting
When you obtain a Linux cloud web hosting package from our company, it will be set up on our custom cloud hosting platform where ionCube Loader is already present, so you won't have any problems to manage any script application that requires the tool in order to run appropriately. Furthermore, we offer you a few different versions of PHP, so if you change the version, you'll need to enable ionCube again. Our system remembers the adjustments you make, so in case you move back to the previous version of PHP which was active for your account, ionCube Loader will already be turned on. The PHP version and the ionCube instrument can be managed through the PHP Configuration area of our Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. Every adjustment that you make takes literally just a single click and it takes effect immediately.
