IonCube Loader is a software tool, which is required to run files that are encrypted with ionCube PHP Encoder. The aforementioned is an app used to make PHP code human unreadable, to protect it from reverse engineering or illegal usage. Numerous script-driven apps, in particular community forums, cms and e-commerce solutions are protected with ionCube PHP Encoder, therefore when you purchase a script and you notice that ionCube is on the list of web hosting environment prerequisites, you have to ensure that your web hosting server has the instrument pre-installed. Though it's not that difficult to set it up when 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 shall be affected.
