Lots of script-driven applications, particularly paid cms, encode their files so as to ensure that they won't be reverse engineered or tampered with. The majority of them use an application named ionCube PHP Encoder to do that, so, in case you obtain a paid script and you'd like to install it in a hosting account, an instrument called ionCube Loader has to be present on your server. Without this, you won't be able to install the script or in case you somehow manage to do this, it won't operate efficiently as most of the script code will be encoded to a point where it can't be interpreted. In this light, you have to make sure that ionCube Loader is installed if you get a new website hosting account and you wish to employ some paid web app. If you acquire a shared hosting account and the tool is not present, it can't be added since the whole server PHP environment shall have to be compiled again.
IonCube in Cloud Hosting
IonCube Loader is available on all web servers that are a part of our cloud web hosting platform, therefore regardless of the Linux cloud hosting package that you choose during the signup process, you will be able to activate it from your Hepsia Control Panel. The process is as simple as right-clicking an On/Off button inside the Advanced section, so even if this will be your first website hosting account ever, you will not have to do anything complex. The same section will allow you to choose the PHP version for your account (4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4, 5.5), and in case you decide to switch to another version, you just have to activate ionCube Loader for it as well. Due to the fact that our platform is very flexible, you can even set another PHP version and a different status of ionCube using a php.ini file in every domain folder.
