Plenty of script-driven applications, particularly paid content management systems, encrypt their files so as to ensure that they won't be reverse engineered or tampered with. Most of them use an application called ionCube PHP Encoder to do this, so if you purchase a paid script and you intend to install it in a web hosting account, a software tool called ionCube Loader must be present on the server. Without having it, you cannot install the script or in case you somehow manage to do this, it won't operate effectively for the reason that most of the script code will be encrypted to a degree where it can't be interpreted. In this light, you should make sure that ionCube Loader is set up when you get a new hosting account and you'd like to work with some paid web application. If you buy a shared hosting account and the instrument is not present, it can't be added since the whole server PHP environment shall have to be compiled again.
IonCube in Cloud Website Hosting
IonCube Loader is provided with all the cloud website hosting packages which we provide, so any time you need it to set up and execute some script application which requires it, you can activate it with a single click inside the Advanced section of the Hepsia Control Panel. Due to the fact that you can switch the PHP release that's active for your account from the same section, you'll need to enable the instrument for each new version that you set. If you are more skillful, you'll be able to take advantage of a php.ini file in a domain or subdomain folder and set both the PHP version and the status of ionCube Loader for this particular website only, without affecting the entire account. This way you're able to run both new and older script applications for multiple sites within the same account - something that you cannot do with numerous other website hosting service providers on the market.
