IonCube Loader is a software tool, which is necessary to run files which are encoded with ionCube PHP Encoder. The aforementioned is an application designed to make PHP code human unreadable, in order to protect it from reverse engineering or not authorized usage. A great number of script-driven applications, particularly forums, cms and electronic commerce solutions are protected with ionCube PHP Encoder, so when you buy a script and you find that ionCube is on the list of web hosting environment prerequisites, you should ensure that your web hosting server has the tool pre-installed. While it's 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 because the PHP environment shall have to be precompiled and all of the clients on the server shall be affected.
