What precisely is IonCube? Why is it present on almost every present-day server running PHP?
Lots of script-driven applications, especially paid content management systems, encrypt their files so as to ensure that they will not be reverse engineered or tampered with. Most of them use an app known as ionCube PHP Encoder to do this, so, in case you obtain a paid script and you want to set it up in a website hosting account, a software tool known as ionCube Loader needs to be present on the server. Without having it, you will not be able to install the script or in case you somehow manage to do that, it will not operate efficiently due to the fact that most of the script code will be encrypted to a degree where it can't be interpreted. That's why, you have to ensure that ionCube Loader is present when you get a new hosting account and you want to use some paid web app. If you acquire a shared hosting account and the instrument is not present, it cannot be added as the entire server PHP environment will have to be compiled again.
IonCube in Shared Hosting
When you get a Linux shared hosting through our company, it will be created on our tailor-made cloud hosting platform where ionCube Loader is already present, so you will not have any kind of problems to run any script app that requires the tool in order to function properly. We also offer you several different versions of PHP, which means that if you switch the version, you will have to activate ionCube once again. Our system remembers the changes you make, and when you switch back to the previous version of PHP which was active for your account, ionCube Loader will already be activated. The PHP version as well as the ionCube instrument can be managed through the PHP Configuration part of our Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Each change that you make takes literally just a click and it'll take effect right away.
