IonCube Loader is a software instrument, which is required to run files which are encrypted with ionCube PHP Encoder. The aforementioned is an application that is used to make PHP code human unreadable, so as to protect it from reverse engineering and / or illegal usage. A large number of script-driven applications, particularly discussion boards, cms and e-commerce solutions are protected with ionCube PHP Encoder, which means that if you purchase a script and you notice that ionCube is one of the website hosting environment prerequisites, you need to make sure that your web hosting server has the tool pre-installed. Though it is not that difficult to set it up if you have your own server, it's 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 shall be affected.
