IonCube Loader is a software tool, that is needed to run files that 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 illegal use. Various script-driven apps, in particular community forums, cms and electronic commerce solutions are encoded with ionCube PHP Encoder, therefore when you obtain a script and you notice that ionCube is one of the website hosting environment prerequisites, you should ensure that your hosting server has the instrument pre-installed. Though it's not that difficult to install it if you have your own server, it's close to impossible to do that on a shared hosting server for the reason that the PHP environment shall have to be precompiled and all the clients on the server will be affected.
