A lot of script-driven apps, particularly paid cms, encrypt their files to make sure that they won't be reverse engineered or tampered with. The majority of them use an app known as ionCube PHP Encoder to do this, so, in case you acquire a paid script and you intend to install it in a website hosting account, a tool called ionCube Loader has to be present on your server. Without having it, you won't be able to install the script or if you somehow manage to do this, it will not function efficiently since almost all of the script code will be encrypted to a degree where it cannot be interpreted. In this light, you need to make sure that ionCube Loader is set up if you get a fresh website hosting account and you'd like to use some paid web application. If you purchase a shared web hosting account and the instrument is not present, it can't be added since the whole server PHP environment shall have to be compiled again.

IonCube in Cloud Web Hosting

IonCube Loader is a part of all web servers that are part of our cloud web hosting platform, which means that regardless of the Linux cloud web hosting that you select during the signup process, you can activate it from your Hepsia Control Panel. The process is as easy as clicking an On/Off button inside the Advanced section, so even if this is your first hosting account ever, you will not need to do anything complex. The exact same section enables you to choose the PHP version for your account (4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4, 5.5, 5.6, 7.0, 7.1, 7.2, 7.3, 7.4, 8.0, 8.1, 8.2), so in case you decide to switch to another version, you only have to activate ionCube Loader for it as well. Because our platform is really flexible, you can set a different PHP version and a different status of ionCube by using a php.ini file in each domain folder. In case this is something you would like to do but you do not have much experience, the 24/7 support team will help you very quickly.
