Lots of script-driven applications, particularly paid content management systems, encode their files so as to ensure that they will not be reverse engineered or tampered with. Most of them use an application known as ionCube PHP Encoder to do this, so when you purchase a paid script and you wish to set it up in a web hosting account, a software tool 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 manage to do this, it will not function properly because almost all of the script code will be encrypted to a degree where it cannot be interpreted. In this light, you need to ensure that ionCube Loader is set up if you get a new hosting account and you wish to take advantage of some paid web application. If you acquire a shared hosting account and the instrument is not present, it can't be added because the whole server PHP environment shall have to be compiled again.
IonCube in Website Hosting
IonCube Loader comes with all of the website hosting packages which we offer, so when you require it to install and run some script app that requires it, you can enable it with a single click in the Advanced section of your Hepsia Control Panel. Because you can switch the PHP release which is active for your account in the same section, you will need to activate the tool for every new version which you set. In case you are more skillful, you are able to employ a php.ini file in a domain or subdomain folder and set the PHP version as well as the status of ionCube Loader for that particular website only, without affecting the whole 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 can't do with lots of other website hosting service providers available on the market.
