Lots of script-driven apps, particularly paid cms, encrypt their files to make sure that they won't be reverse engineered or tampered with. Many of them use an app named ionCube PHP Encoder to do that, so when you acquire a paid script and you'd like to set it up in a hosting account, an instrument known as ionCube Loader needs to be present on your server. Without this, you will not be able to install the script or if you somehow find a way to do this, it will not work effectively due to the fact that almost all of the script code will be encrypted to a degree where it cannot be interpreted. In this light, you have to make sure that ionCube Loader is installed if you get a fresh web hosting account and you want to work with some paid web app. If you purchase a shared hosting account and the instrument is not present, it cannot be added as the whole server PHP environment will have to be compiled again.

IonCube in Website Hosting

IonCube Loader is supplied with each website hosting that we provide and you can activate it anytime with only a few clicks, so you will be able to use script applications which require it. You'll be able to do this through the PHP Configuration area of the Hepsia Control Panel and all it'll take to enable or deactivate ionCube is to click a single button. The change will take effect within a minute, which means that you can go ahead and set up the application that you would like right away. The exact same section allows you to switch the PHP release which is active for your account, because we support a number of versions on our leading-edge cloud platform. In case you switch to a version that you have never used to date, you will need to activate ionCube Loader once again. Experienced users will be able to use a php.ini file in a particular domain folder to set a PHP release different from the one for the entire account or enable/disable ionCube Loader.
