What is IonCube? Why is it present on nearly every present-day web server running PHP?
A lot of script-driven apps, especially paid cms, encode their files to ensure 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 when you acquire a paid script and you'd like to set it up in a website hosting account, an instrument called ionCube Loader needs 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 that, it won't work efficiently due to the fact that almost all of the script code will be encoded to a point where it can't be interpreted. That is why, you have to ensure that ionCube Loader is installed if you get a new website hosting account and you wish to work with some paid web app. If you get a shared website hosting account and the tool is not present, it cannot be added since the entire server PHP environment shall have to be compiled again.
IonCube in Website Hosting
IonCube Loader is available with all of the website hosting
packages that we provide, so when you require it to set up and execute a script application that needs it, you can enable it with a single click from the Advanced section of your Hepsia Control Panel. Since you'll be able to change the PHP release that is active for your account in the same section, you'll need to enable the instrument for every new version which you set. In case you are more skillful, 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 that particular website only, without affecting the whole account. Thus you will be able to run both new and older script applications for multiple sites inside the same account - a thing that you can't do with numerous other website hosting suppliers available on the market.
