IonCube Loader is an instrument, that's necessary to run files which are encrypted with ionCube PHP Encoder. The latter is an app employed to make PHP code human unreadable, to protect it from reverse engineering and illegal usage. A great number of script-driven applications, in particular discussion forums, cms and e-commerce solutions are protected with ionCube PHP Encoder, which means that when you purchase a script and you find that ionCube is among the web hosting environment requirements, you need to make sure that your hosting server has the instrument pre-installed. While it's not that difficult to set it up if you have your own server, it's almost impossible to do that on a shared web hosting server as the PHP environment shall have to be precompiled and all the clients on the server shall be affected.
