IonCube Loader is a tool, that's required to run files that are protected with ionCube PHP Encoder. The aforementioned is an application employed to make PHP code human unreadable, so as to protect it from reverse engineering and / or illegal use. A large number of script-driven apps, in particular discussion boards, cms and electronic commerce solutions are protected with ionCube PHP Encoder, therefore when you acquire a script and you notice that ionCube is on the list of hosting environment prerequisites, you need to make sure that your web hosting server has the instrument pre-installed. While 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 web hosting server as the PHP environment will have to be precompiled and all the clients on the server shall be affected.
