Lots of script-driven applications, particularly paid content management systems, encrypt their files to ensure that they will not be reverse engineered or tampered with. Many of them use an app known as ionCube PHP Encoder to do that, so, in case you get a paid script and you'd like to set it up in a hosting account, an instrument called ionCube Loader has to be present on the server. Without having it, you won't be able to install the script or in case you somehow find a way to do that, it won't function efficiently as almost all of the script code will be encoded to a point where it cannot be interpreted. That's why, you have to ensure that ionCube Loader is present when you get a new hosting account and you'd like to take advantage of some paid web application. If you acquire a shared web hosting account and the instrument is not present, it can't be added because your entire server PHP environment shall have to be compiled again.

IonCube Loader is supplied with every single cloud website hosting plan that we supply and you're able to activate it at any time with only a couple of clicks, so you can use script apps which require it.

The change takes effect in a minute, so you can go ahead and set up the app that you need without delay. The same section allows you to switch the PHP version that's active for your account, because we support a number of releases on our cutting-edge cloud platform. In case you move to a release that you've never used to date, you'll need to activate ionCube Loader once again. Experienced users will be able to use a php.ini file in a specific domain folder in order to set a PHP version different from the one for the whole account or enable/disable ionCube Loader.
