IonCube Loader is a software instrument, which is necessary to run files which are protected with ionCube PHP Encoder. The aforementioned is an application employed to make PHP code human unreadable, as a way to protect it from reverse engineering and / or not authorized use. A lot of script-driven apps, especially discussion forums, cms and e-commerce solutions are encrypted with ionCube PHP Encoder, so when you get a script and you find that ionCube is on the list of website hosting environment requirements, you should make sure that your hosting server has the tool pre-installed. Though it's not that difficult to set it up when you have your own server, it is close to impossible to do that on a shared web hosting server as the PHP environment should be precompiled and all clients on the server will be affected.
