IonCube Loader is an instrument, that's required to run files that are encrypted with ionCube PHP Encoder. The latter is an application used to make PHP code human unreadable, so as to protect it from reverse engineering or illegal use. Various script-driven apps, in particular discussion forums, content management systems and electronic commerce solutions are encrypted with ionCube PHP Encoder, therefore if you purchase a script and you notice that ionCube is among the website hosting environment requirements, you need to make sure that your hosting server has the tool pre-installed. Although it's not that hard to install it if you have your own server, it is close to impossible to do that on a shared hosting server since the PHP environment shall have to be precompiled and all the clients on the server shall be affected.
