Plenty of script-driven applications, especially paid content management systems, encode their files to ensure that they won't be reverse engineered or tampered with. Many of them use an application known as ionCube PHP Encoder to do this, so when you get a paid script and you intend to set it up in a website hosting account, a software instrument known as ionCube Loader has to be present on your server. Without having it, you will not be able to install the script or in case you somehow find a way to do this, it won't operate efficiently due to the fact that most of the script code will be encrypted to a degree where it cannot be interpreted. In this light, you need to make sure that ionCube Loader is set up when you get a fresh website hosting account and you want to work with some paid web app. If you get a shared web hosting account and the tool is not present, it can't be added because your entire server PHP environment will have to be compiled again.
IonCube in Hosting
When you purchase a hosting through us, it will be set up on our custom-made cloud platform where ionCube Loader is already set up, so you won't have any kind of problems to run any script application which requires the instrument in order to run appropriately. Furthermore, we provide several different versions of PHP, which means that if you switch the version, you need to enable ionCube again. Our platform remembers the changes you make, so in case you go back to the earlier version of PHP that was active for your account, ionCube Loader will already be activated. The PHP version and the ionCube instrument can be managed from the PHP Configuration section of our Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. Each adjustment that you do takes literally just a click and it takes effect at once.
