Lots of script-driven apps, especially paid cms, encrypt their files in order to ensure that they won't be reverse engineered or tampered with. The majority of them use an application named ionCube PHP Encoder to do that, so if you get a paid script and you want to install it in a web hosting account, a software tool called ionCube Loader must be present on your server. Without this, you won't be able to install the script or if you somehow find a way to do that, it will not operate efficiently since most of the script code will be encrypted to a degree where it can't be interpreted. That's why, you should ensure that ionCube Loader is present if you get a new hosting account and you would like to employ some paid web application. If you obtain a shared website hosting account and the instrument is not present, it cannot be added since the entire server PHP environment shall have to be compiled again.
IonCube in Hosting
If you get a hosting through us, it will be created on our custom cloud hosting platform where ionCube Loader is already installed, so you will not have any kind of problems to run any script application which requires the instrument to run appropriately. Furthermore, we supply several different versions of PHP, so in case you switch the version, you will have to activate ionCube again. Our platform remembers the adjustments you make, which means that when you move back to the previous version of PHP that was active for your account, ionCube Loader will already be turned on. The PHP version as well as the ionCube tool can be managed from the PHP Configuration section of our Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Every adjustment that you do takes literally just a single click and it will take effect immediately.
