What precisely is IonCube? Why is it present on almost every present-day hosting server running PHP?
A lot of script-driven apps, particularly paid content management systems, encrypt their files in order to ensure that they won't be reverse engineered or tampered with. The majority of them use an application known as ionCube PHP Encoder to do this, so when you get a paid script and you wish to set it up in a hosting account, a tool called ionCube Loader must be present on the server. Without it, you will not be able to install the script or if you somehow find a way to do this, it will not work effectively since most of the script code will be encrypted to a point where it cannot be interpreted. In this light, you have to make sure that ionCube Loader is set up when you get a new hosting account and you'd like to take advantage of some paid web application. If you buy a shared hosting account and the instrument is not present, it cannot be added since your entire server PHP environment shall have to be compiled again.
IonCube in Hosting
If you obtain a Linux hosting from us, it'll be created on our custom-built cloud platform where ionCube Loader is already set up, so you won't have any kind of problems to manage any script app which needs the instrument in order to run properly. We also offer you a few different versions of PHP, therefore if you switch the version, you'll need to enable ionCube once again. Our platform remembers the adjustments you make, so if you switch back to the previous version of PHP that was active for your account, ionCube Loader will already be turned on. The PHP version as well as the ionCube tool can be managed from the PHP Configuration area of our Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. Any adjustment that you make takes literally just a mouse-click and it'll take effect immediately.
