Plenty 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 known as ionCube PHP Encoder to do this, so if you acquire a paid script and you intend to set it up in a website hosting account, an instrument known as ionCube Loader needs to be present on the server. Without it, you won't be able to install the script or in case you somehow manage to do this, it will not function appropriately for the reason that almost all of the script code will be encoded to a degree where it can't be interpreted. In this light, you have to ensure that ionCube Loader is installed when you get a fresh website hosting account and you wish to take advantage of some paid web application. If you obtain a shared website 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

IonCube Loader is available on all of the web servers that are a part of our cloud website hosting platform, therefore whatever the Linux cloud hosting package that you choose during the signup process, you can enable it through your Hepsia Control Panel. This process is as simple as right-clicking an On/Off button from the Advanced section, so even if this will be your first hosting account ever, you won't have to do anything complicated. The exact same section enables you to choose the PHP release for your account (4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4, 5.5), which means that in case you would like to switch to a different version, you just have to activate ionCube Loader for it as well. Because our platform is rather flexible, you may even set another PHP version and another status of ionCube by using a php.ini file in every domain folder. In case this is something you wish to do but you don't have much experience, our 24/7 technical support team will help you quickly.
