Lots of script-driven applications, especially paid content management systems, encode their files in order to make sure that they won't be reverse engineered or tampered with. The majority of them use an application named ionCube PHP Encoder to do that, so, in case you buy a paid script and you would like to install it in a website hosting account, a software instrument known as ionCube Loader needs to be present on the server. Without this, you will not be able to install the script or if you somehow find a way to do that, it will not operate efficiently since most of the script code will be encrypted to a degree where it can't be interpreted. That is why, you need to ensure that ionCube Loader is present when you get a fresh website hosting account and you wish to take advantage of some paid web application. If you obtain a shared web hosting account and the instrument is not present, it cannot be added as the entire server PHP environment shall have to be compiled again.

IonCube Loader is available with all of the cloud website hosting packages that we provide, so if you need it to set up and execute a script application which requires it, you can activate it with a single click inside the Advanced area of your Hepsia Control Panel. As you can switch the PHP release which is active for your account from the same section, you'll have to activate the tool for each new version that you set. If you're more skillful, you'll be able to take advantage of a php.ini file in a domain or subdomain folder and set the PHP version and the status of ionCube Loader for this particular website only, without affecting the whole account. Thus you will be able to run both new and older script apps for multiple websites in the same account - a thing that you cannot do with many other web hosting suppliers out there.
