A lot of script-driven apps, especially paid content management systems, encode their files so as to make sure that they won't be reverse engineered or tampered with. Many of them use an application called ionCube PHP Encoder to do that, so when you purchase a paid script and you intend to set it up in a website hosting account, a software instrument called ionCube Loader must be present on the server. Without this, you can't install the script or in case you somehow manage to do this, it won't work efficiently as almost all of the script code will be encrypted to a degree where it cannot be interpreted. That is why, you need to ensure that ionCube Loader is installed if you get a new hosting account and you'd like to take advantage of some paid web application. If you obtain a shared web hosting account and the tool is not present, it cannot be added as the whole server PHP environment shall have to be compiled again.
IonCube in Cloud Hosting
IonCube Loader is supplied with each cloud plan that we offer and you will be able to activate it anytime with just a few clicks, so you can take advantage of script apps which need it. You will be able to do this through the PHP Configuration section of your Hepsia Control Panel and all it will take to enable or deactivate ionCube is to click a button. The change takes effect in a minute, therefore you'll be able to go ahead and set up the application that you'd like without delay. The very same section will allow you to switch the PHP version which is active for your account, as we support numerous versions on our cutting-edge cloud platform. If you switch to a version that you've never used to date, you will need to enable ionCube Loader again. More advanced users will be able to use a php.ini file in a specific domain folder in order to set a PHP release different from the one for the whole account or enable/disable ionCube Loader.
