Lots of script-driven apps, particularly paid cms, encode their files 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 if you buy a paid script and you want to install it in a hosting account, a software instrument known as ionCube Loader needs to be present on your server. Without having it, you will not be able to install the script or in case you somehow find a way to do that, it will not work appropriately because 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 if you get a fresh web hosting account and you want to use some paid web application. If you obtain a shared website 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 Website Hosting

IonCube Loader is provided with all the cloud website hosting plans which we provide, so any time you need it to install and execute some script application which needs it, you can activate it with a single click from the Advanced area of your Hepsia Control Panel. Since you're able to change the PHP version that's active for your account from the same section, you'll need to activate the tool for any new version that you set. When you're more skillful, you will be able to use a php.ini file in a domain or subdomain folder and set both the PHP version as well as the status of ionCube Loader for this particular website only, without affecting the entire account. Thus you can operate both new and older script applications for multiple websites within the same account - a thing that you can't do with a lot of other website hosting providers on the market.
