Lots of script-driven apps, particularly paid cms, encode their files so as to ensure that they will not be reverse engineered or tampered with. Most of them use an application called ionCube PHP Encoder to do this, so, in case you acquire a paid script and you would like to set it up in a web hosting account, a software tool known as ionCube Loader needs to be present on the server. Without this, you cannot install the script or if you somehow manage to do that, it won't operate effectively because almost all of the script code will be encoded to a point where it can't be interpreted. That's why, you have to make sure that ionCube Loader is set up if you get a fresh web hosting account and you want to use some paid web application. If you get a shared web hosting account and the instrument is not present, it cannot be added since your entire server PHP environment shall have to be compiled again.

IonCube in Cloud Website Hosting

IonCube Loader is provided with all cloud website hosting packages which we supply, so any time you require it to set up and execute a script application which needs it, you can activate it with a click inside the Advanced area of your Hepsia Control Panel. As you're able to change the PHP release which is active for your account from the same section, you will need to enable the instrument for every new version that you set. When you are more skillful, you are able to use a php.ini file in a domain or subdomain folder and set both the PHP version and the status of ionCube Loader for that particular site only, without affecting the entire account. Thus you can manage both new and older script applications for multiple websites in the same account - a thing that you can't do with many other web hosting suppliers out there.
