Lots of script-driven applications, particularly paid cms, encode their files to ensure that they will not be reverse engineered or tampered with. The majority of them use an app called ionCube PHP Encoder to do this, so if you purchase a paid script and you want to set it up in a web hosting account, a software instrument called ionCube Loader needs to be present on your server. Without this, you won't be able to install the script or if you somehow manage to do that, it will not operate properly for the reason that most of the script code will be encrypted to a degree where it cannot be interpreted. In this light, you should make sure that ionCube Loader is present when you get a new website hosting account and you'd like to use some paid web application. If you buy a shared website hosting account and the instrument is not present, it can't be added as your entire server PHP environment shall have to be compiled again.
IonCube in Shared Hosting
When you buy a Linux shared hosting from us, it will be set up on our custom cloud platform where ionCube Loader is already present, so you will not have any kind of problems to run any script application which requires the tool in order to run properly. We also supply several different releases of PHP, which means that in case you switch the version, you need to enable ionCube again. Our system remembers the adjustments you make, which means that in case you switch back to the earlier version 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 operated through the PHP Configuration section of our Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. Each change that you make takes literally just a single click and it will take effect at once.
