A lot of script-driven applications, especially paid cms, encode their files in order to make sure that they won't be reverse engineered or tampered with. Most of them use an app named ionCube PHP Encoder to do this, so if you purchase a paid script and you would like to install it in a web hosting account, an instrument called ionCube Loader has to 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 won't work effectively since almost all of the script code will be encrypted to a point where it can't be interpreted. That's why, you have to make sure that ionCube Loader is set up when you get a fresh hosting account and you would like to employ some paid web application. If you acquire a shared web hosting account and the instrument is not present, it can't be added since your entire server PHP environment shall have to be compiled again.

IonCube in Cloud Web Hosting

IonCube Loader is supplied with every single Linux cloud web hosting package that we offer and you are able to activate it at any time with only a couple of clicks, so you can take advantage of script applications that need it. You're able to do this through the PHP Configuration section of your Hepsia Control Panel and all it takes to enable or deactivate ionCube is to click a button. The change will take effect within a minute, so you will be able to go ahead and set up the application that you'd like without delay. The very same section allows you to change the PHP version that is active for your account, as we support multiple versions on our advanced cloud hosting platform. If you switch to a version that you haven't used to date, you'll need to enable ionCube Loader once again. More advanced users can use a php.ini file in a specific domain folder so as to set a PHP release different from the one for the entire account or enable/disable ionCube Loader.
