IonCube Loader is a software instrument, that is required to run files which are protected with ionCube PHP Encoder. The aforementioned is an app which is used to make PHP code human unreadable, in order to protect it from reverse engineering or illegal use. Plenty of script-driven apps, particularly discussion boards, content management systems and electronic commerce solutions are encoded with ionCube PHP Encoder, so if you buy a script and you notice that ionCube is on the list of website hosting environment prerequisites, you should ensure that your 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 hosting server for the reason that the PHP environment should be precompiled and all of the clients on the server will be affected.
