IonCube Loader is a tool, that is necessary to run files which are encoded 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 unauthorized use. A number of script-driven applications, particularly message boards, cms and e-commerce solutions are encrypted with ionCube PHP Encoder, so if you acquire a script and you find that ionCube is one of the web hosting environment prerequisites, you should make sure that your web hosting server has the tool pre-installed. Though it is not that hard to set it up when you have your own server, it is almost impossible to do that on a shared web hosting server as the PHP environment shall have to be precompiled and all of the clients on the server shall be affected.
