Plenty of script-driven apps, particularly paid cms, encrypt their files in order to make sure that they won't be reverse engineered or tampered with. The majority of them use an application called ionCube PHP Encoder to do this, so, in case you obtain a paid script and you'd like to set it up in a website hosting account, a software tool called ionCube Loader needs to be present on the server. Without having it, you can't install the script or if you somehow find a way to do this, it will not function effectively as most of the script code will be encrypted to a point where it cannot be interpreted. That's why, you need to make sure that ionCube Loader is installed when you get a new hosting account and you'd like to use some paid web app. If you buy a shared hosting account and the tool is not present, it cannot be added because your entire server PHP environment shall have to be compiled again.

IonCube in Cloud Website Hosting

IonCube Loader comes with all of the cloud website hosting plans that we provide, so when you require it in order to set up and execute a script application that needs it, you can activate it with a single click in the Advanced area of your Hepsia Control Panel. Due to the fact that you're able to change the PHP version which is active for your account in the same section, you will need to enable the tool for any new version that you set. If you are more experienced, you're 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 site only, without affecting the entire account. Thus you'll be able to manage both new and older script apps for multiple sites inside the same account - a thing that you will not be able to do with numerous other hosting suppliers available on the market.
