IonCube Loader is a software tool, that's required to run files that are encoded with ionCube PHP Encoder. The aforementioned is an application employed to make PHP code human unreadable, in order to protect it from reverse engineering and illegal use. Numerous script-driven apps, in particular online forums, cms and e-commerce solutions are encoded with ionCube PHP Encoder, therefore if you acquire a script and you notice that ionCube is on the list of web hosting environment requirements, you should ensure that your web hosting server has the tool pre-installed. Although it is not that difficult to install it when you have your own server, it's close to impossible to do that on a shared hosting server because the PHP environment shall have to be precompiled and all the clients on the server will be affected.
