Plenty of script-driven applications, especially paid content management systems, encrypt their files to ensure that they won't be reverse engineered or tampered with. Most of them use an application known as ionCube PHP Encoder to do this, so when you acquire a paid script and you wish to set it up in a website hosting account, a tool known as ionCube Loader needs to be present on your server. Without it, you can't install the script or if you somehow manage to do this, it will not work properly since most of the script code will be encrypted to a degree where it can't be interpreted. That is why, you need to make sure that ionCube Loader is present when you get a fresh hosting account and you'd like to take advantage of some paid web app. If you purchase a shared website hosting account and the tool is not present, it can't be added as the whole server PHP environment shall have to be compiled again.
IonCube in Web Hosting
IonCube Loader is supplied with each Linux web hosting that we supply and you can activate it at any time with only a couple of clicks, so you'll be able to use script applications that require it. You will be able to do that through the PHP Configuration section of the Hepsia Control Panel and all it'll take to activate or disable ionCube is to click a single button. The change will take effect in a minute, which means that you are able to proceed and install the app that you would like without delay. The same section allows you to switch the PHP version that is active for your account, as we support a number of versions on our state-of-the-art cloud hosting platform. In case you switch to a version that you have never used to date, you'll have to enable ionCube Loader again.
