IonCube Loader is a software instrument, that is necessary to run files that are protected with ionCube PHP Encoder. The aforementioned is an app used to make PHP code human unreadable, in order to protect it from reverse engineering and not authorized usage. Various script-driven apps, particularly online forums, cms and electronic commerce solutions are encrypted with ionCube PHP Encoder, therefore if you acquire a script and you find that ionCube is among the hosting environment requirements, you have to make sure that your hosting server has the tool pre-installed. While it's not that hard to set it up if you have your own server, it is almost impossible to do that on a shared web hosting server because the PHP environment should be precompiled and all the clients on the server will be affected.
