Plenty of script-driven apps, particularly paid content management systems, encrypt their files to ensure that they will not be reverse engineered or tampered with. Many of them use an application known as ionCube PHP Encoder to do that, so, in case you purchase a paid script and you would like to set it up in a web hosting account, a software tool known as ionCube Loader must be present on your server. Without having it, you cannot install the script or in case you somehow find a way to do that, it won't operate properly for the reason that most of the script code will be encrypted to a point where it cannot be interpreted. That's why, you have to ensure that ionCube Loader is installed when you get a fresh web hosting account and you would like to take advantage of some paid web app. If you get a shared hosting account and the instrument is not present, it can't be added because the entire server PHP environment shall have to be compiled again.

IonCube in Cloud Website Hosting

IonCube Loader is supplied with every single Linux cloud website hosting that we supply and you'll be able to enable it anytime with only a couple of clicks, so you'll be able to take advantage of script applications that need it. You are able to do this through the PHP Configuration area of your Hepsia Control Panel and all it'll take to enable or disable ionCube is to click a single button. The change takes effect within a minute, so you will be able to go ahead and install the app that you need right away. The exact same section allows you to switch the PHP version that's active for your account, as we support numerous releases on our leading-edge cloud hosting platform. In case you move to a version that you've never used to date, you will have to activate ionCube Loader once again. More advanced users will be able to use a php.ini file in a specific domain folder to set a PHP release different from the one for the whole account or enable/disable ionCube Loader.
