Lots of script-driven apps, especially paid content management systems, encode their files so as to ensure that they won't be reverse engineered or tampered with. Many of them use an app named ionCube PHP Encoder to do that, so when you get a paid script and you want to install it in a website hosting account, a tool known as ionCube Loader has to be present on the server. Without having it, you cannot install the script or in case you somehow manage to do that, it will not function efficiently for the reason that almost all of the script code will be encrypted to a point where it cannot be interpreted. In this light, you need to ensure that ionCube Loader is installed if you get a fresh website hosting account and you want to employ some paid web application. If you purchase a shared website hosting account and the tool is not present, it cannot be added since the entire server PHP environment will have to be compiled again.

IonCube in Cloud Hosting

IonCube Loader comes with all the cloud hosting packages which we offer, so every time you require it to set up and run a script application that requires it, you can activate it with a single click in the Advanced area of your Hepsia Control Panel. Since you'll be able to change the PHP version that is active for your account in the same section, you'll need to activate the instrument for any new version that you set. When you are more skillful, you're able to take advantage of a php.ini file in a domain or subdomain folder and set the PHP version as well as the status of ionCube Loader for this particular site only, without affecting the whole account. In this way you will be able to manage both new and older script applications for multiple sites within the same account - something that you can't do with numerous other hosting suppliers on the market.
