Lots of script-driven apps, particularly paid cms, encrypt their files in order to make sure that they won't be reverse engineered or tampered with. Many of them use an app known as ionCube PHP Encoder to do that, so if you get a paid script and you intend to set it up in a web hosting account, an instrument known as ionCube Loader has to be present on the server. Without having it, you can't install the script or in case you somehow find a way to do this, it won't operate appropriately due to the fact that almost all of the script code will be encrypted to a degree where it can't be interpreted. That is why, you should make sure that ionCube Loader is present when you get a fresh web hosting account and you would like to take advantage of some paid web application. If you get a shared web hosting account and the instrument is not present, it can't be added since the whole server PHP environment will have to be compiled again.
IonCube in Cloud Web Hosting
If you buy a Linux cloud web hosting package from our company, it will be set up on our custom cloud hosting platform where ionCube Loader is already installed, so you won't have any kind of problems to manage any script application which requires the instrument so as to run properly. We also offer several different versions of PHP, so if you change the version, you will have to enable ionCube again. Our platform remembers the adjustments you make, so when you switch back to the previous release of PHP which was active for your account, ionCube Loader will already be enabled. The PHP version as well as the ionCube instrument can be operated from the PHP Configuration area of our Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. Any adjustment that you make takes literally just a click and it'll take effect immediately.
