Lots of script-driven applications, especially paid content management systems, encrypt their files to ensure that they won't be reverse engineered or tampered with. Most of them use an app known as ionCube PHP Encoder to do this, so, in case you acquire a paid script and you'd like to set it up in a web hosting account, a software instrument known as ionCube Loader needs to be present on the server. Without this, you won't be able to install the script or in case you somehow manage to do this, it won't work efficiently as almost all of the script code will be encoded to a point where it can't be interpreted. That is why, you need to ensure that ionCube Loader is present if you get a fresh hosting account and you would like to work with some paid web app. If you obtain a shared hosting account and the tool is not present, it cannot be added because the entire server PHP environment shall have to be compiled again.

IonCube in Cloud Hosting

When you buy a cloud service through our company, it'll be set up on our custom-built cloud hosting platform where ionCube Loader is already set up, so you will not have any problems to run any script application that requires the tool so as to function properly. Furthermore, we provide several different releases of PHP, therefore if you switch the version, you will have to activate ionCube once again. Our platform remembers the changes you make, which means that in case you go back to the earlier release of PHP that was active for your account, ionCube Loader will already be enabled. The PHP version as well as the ionCube tool can be operated from the PHP Configuration area of our Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. Every adjustment that you make takes literally just a single click and it will take effect instantly.
