A lot of script-driven applications, especially paid cms, encode their files in order to make sure that they will not be reverse engineered or tampered with. Most of them use an application known as ionCube PHP Encoder to do this, so, in case you buy a paid script and you intend to install it in a web hosting account, an instrument called ionCube Loader needs to be present on the server. Without it, you cannot install the script or if you somehow find a way to do this, it won't work properly as almost all of the script code will be encrypted to a degree where it can't be interpreted. In this light, you should ensure that ionCube Loader is set up when you get a fresh web hosting account and you want to take advantage of some paid web app. If you buy a shared hosting account and the tool is not present, it cannot be added as the entire server PHP environment shall have to be compiled again.
IonCube in Cloud Hosting
When you get a Linux cloud hosting through us, it will be set up on our custom-made cloud hosting platform where ionCube Loader is already installed, so you won't have any problems to manage any script application that requires the tool in order to function appropriately. Furthermore, we supply a few different versions of PHP, therefore in case you change the version, you will need to enable ionCube once again. Our platform remembers the adjustments you make, and in case you move back to the previous release of PHP that was active for your account, ionCube Loader will already be turned on. The PHP version as well as the ionCube instrument can be operated through the PHP Configuration part of our Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Any adjustment that you do takes literally just a click and it'll take effect at once.
