IonCube Loader is a software tool, which is required to run files that are encoded with ionCube PHP Encoder. The latter is an app used to make PHP code human unreadable, as a way to protect it from reverse engineering or not authorized usage. A great number of script-driven applications, particularly discussion boards, content management systems and e-commerce solutions are encrypted with ionCube PHP Encoder, which means that when you buy a script and you find that ionCube is one of the website hosting environment prerequisites, you should ensure that your web hosting server has the tool pre-installed. Though it is not that difficult to set it up when you have your own server, it is almost impossible to do that on a shared hosting server due to the fact that the PHP environment shall have to be precompiled and all of the clients on the server will be affected.
