A lot of script-driven apps, particularly paid content management systems, encrypt their files in order to make sure that they won't be reverse engineered or tampered with. The majority of them use an app called ionCube PHP Encoder to do this, so, in case you purchase a paid script and you wish to set it up in a web hosting account, a tool 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 that, it will not function appropriately since most of the script code will be encoded to a degree where it can't be interpreted. In this light, you have to ensure that ionCube Loader is set up when you get a new website hosting account and you want to take advantage of some paid web app. If you obtain a shared web hosting account and the tool is not present, it can't be added because your entire server PHP environment will have to be compiled again.

IonCube in Cloud Web Hosting

IonCube Loader is supplied with every single cloud web hosting plan that we provide and you will be able to enable it at any time with just a couple of clicks, so you can use script applications which require it. You will be able to do this through the PHP Configuration area of your Hepsia Control Panel and all it will take to enable or deactivate ionCube is to click a button. The change will take effect within a minute, so you will be able to proceed and set up the app that you would like without delay. The exact same section allows you to change the PHP release that's active for your account, because we support a variety of versions on our advanced cloud platform. If you switch to a version that you have never used so far, you will need to activate ionCube Loader again. More advanced users will be able to use a php.ini file in a particular domain folder in order to set a PHP version different from the one for the entire account or enable/disable ionCube Loader.
