A lot of script-driven apps, especially paid content management systems, encrypt their files so as to make sure that they won't be reverse engineered or tampered with. Many of them use an application known as ionCube PHP Encoder to do that, so when you acquire a paid script and you'd like to set it up in a web hosting account, an instrument called ionCube Loader needs to be present on the server. Without this, you will not be able to install the script or in case you somehow find a way to do that, it will not work efficiently for the reason that almost all of the script code will be encoded to a degree where it can't be interpreted. That's why, you have to make sure that ionCube Loader is present if you get a fresh web hosting account and you wish to employ some paid web application. If you obtain a shared web hosting account and the tool is not present, it cannot be added since your entire server PHP environment shall have to be compiled again.

IonCube in Website Hosting

IonCube Loader is present on all web servers that are a part of our cloud hosting platform, therefore regardless of the website hosting that you choose during the signup process, you'll be able to activate it from your Hepsia Control Panel. This process is as easy as right-clicking an On/Off button in the Advanced section, so even if this will be your first hosting account ever, you won't have to do anything complex. The exact same section allows you to pick the PHP release 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), and if you choose to move to some other version, you only need to activate ionCube Loader for it too. Because our platform is rather flexible, you can set another PHP version and a different status of ionCube by using a php.ini file in every domain folder. In case this is something you would like to do but you don't have much experience, the 24/7 tech support team shall assist you very quickly.
