IonCube Loader is a software tool, that's necessary to run files which are encoded with ionCube PHP Encoder. The aforementioned is an app which is used to make PHP code human unreadable, as a way to protect it from reverse engineering and / or not authorized use. Plenty of script-driven applications, especially forums, cms and electronic commerce solutions are encrypted with ionCube PHP Encoder, so when you acquire a script and you find that ionCube is one of the hosting environment prerequisites, you have to ensure that your hosting server has the tool pre-installed. While it is not that difficult to set it up when you have your own server, it's almost impossible to do that on a shared web hosting server due to the fact that the PHP environment will have to be precompiled and all the clients on the server shall be affected.
