A lot of script-driven apps, particularly paid cms, encrypt their files in order to ensure that they will not be reverse engineered or tampered with. Many of them use an app known as ionCube PHP Encoder to do this, so if you purchase a paid script and you want to set it up in a website hosting account, a software instrument called ionCube Loader needs to be present on your server. Without having it, you can't install the script or if you somehow manage to do that, it won't work appropriately since most of the script code will be encrypted to a degree where it can't be interpreted. That is why, you should make sure that ionCube Loader is installed when you get a fresh web hosting account and you'd like to work with some paid web application. If you get a shared web hosting account and the tool is not present, it can't be added because the whole server PHP environment shall have to be compiled again.
IonCube in Web Hosting
If you aquire a Linux web hosting from our company, it'll be set up on our tailor-made cloud hosting platform where ionCube Loader is already set up, so you will not have any problems to run any script app which needs the tool in order to run properly. Furthermore, we supply several different versions of PHP, therefore if you change the version, you need to activate ionCube again. Our system remembers the adjustments you make, so in case you go back to the earlier release of PHP which was active for your account, ionCube Loader will already be enabled. Both the PHP version as well as the ionCube instrument can be managed from the PHP Configuration section of our Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. Any adjustment that you do takes literally just a click and it takes effect immediately.
