IonCube Loader is a software instrument, which is necessary to run files that are encoded with ionCube PHP Encoder. The latter is an application used to make PHP code human unreadable, so as to protect it from reverse engineering and / or unauthorized use. Various script-driven apps, particularly discussion forums, content management systems and e-commerce solutions are encrypted with ionCube PHP Encoder, therefore when you purchase a script and you notice that ionCube is one of the website hosting environment requirements, you have to ensure that your hosting server has the tool pre-installed. Though it's not that hard to install it if you have your own server, it is close to impossible to do that on a shared hosting server because the PHP environment shall have to be precompiled and all the clients on the server will be affected.
