Lots of script-driven applications, particularly paid content management systems, encrypt their files in order to ensure 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 acquire a paid script and you want to set it up in a hosting account, a software instrument called ionCube Loader has to be present on the server. Without this, you can't install the script or if you somehow find a way to do this, it will not operate effectively since most of the script code will be encrypted to a degree where it cannot be interpreted. In this light, you have to make sure that ionCube Loader is present when you get a fresh web hosting account and you would like to employ 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 entire server PHP environment will have to be compiled again.
IonCube in Shared Hosting
When you aquire a shared plan from our company, it'll be set up on our in-house built cloud platform where ionCube Loader is already set up, so you won't have any kind of problems to manage any script app that requires the instrument so as to run appropriately. We also provide several different versions of PHP, which means that if you change the version, you will need to activate ionCube once again. Our system remembers the adjustments you make, and in case you move back to the earlier release of PHP that was active for your account, ionCube Loader will already be activated. Both the PHP version and the ionCube instrument can be managed from the PHP Configuration area of our Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. Any adjustment that you make takes literally just a single click and it takes effect immediately.
