What's IonCube? Precisely how does IonCube work and when do you really need it for your PHP software?
Plenty of script-driven apps, particularly paid cms, encode their files so as to make sure that they will not be reverse engineered or tampered with. The majority of them use an application named ionCube PHP Encoder to do this, so if you buy a paid script and you'd like to set it up in a website hosting account, a software instrument known as ionCube Loader must be present on your server. Without this, you can't install the script or if you somehow manage to do this, it will not function properly because most of the script code will be encrypted to a point where it can't be interpreted. In this light, you need to ensure that ionCube Loader is present when you get a new website hosting account and you would like to use some paid web application. If you buy a shared hosting account and the tool is not present, it cannot be added as the entire server PHP environment shall have to be compiled again.
IonCube in Hosting
When you get a Linux hosting
from us, it will be created on our custom cloud platform where ionCube Loader is already set up, so you will not have any kind of problems to run any script app which needs the tool so as to run properly. In addition, we offer a few different versions of PHP, therefore in case you switch the version, you will need to activate ionCube again. Our system remembers the changes you make, so if you switch back to the previous version of PHP which was active for your account, ionCube Loader will already be activated. Both 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 do takes literally just a mouse-click and it takes effect immediately.
