A lot of script-driven apps, especially paid content management systems, encode 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 this, so when you purchase a paid script and you want to set it up in a hosting account, a software instrument called ionCube Loader must be present on your server. Without it, you will not be able to install the script or in case you somehow manage to do this, it will not work efficiently as most of the script code will be encoded to a point where it can't be interpreted. That's why, you need to make sure that ionCube Loader is installed if you get a fresh hosting account and you want to employ some paid web app. If you acquire a shared website hosting account and the tool is not present, it cannot be added as your entire server PHP environment shall have to be compiled again.
IonCube in Shared Web Hosting
If you get a shared web hosting from our company, it'll be set up on our tailor-made cloud hosting platform where ionCube Loader is already installed, so you will not have any problems to manage any script application which needs the instrument to run properly. Furthermore, we provide several different releases of PHP, which means that if you change the version, you'll have to activate ionCube again. Our platform remembers the changes you make, which means that if you go back to the earlier release of PHP which was active for your account, ionCube Loader will already be enabled. The PHP version as well as the ionCube tool can be managed from the PHP Configuration area of our Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Each change that you make takes literally just a click and it'll take effect right away.
