IonCube Loader is an instrument, that's required to run files which are encrypted with ionCube PHP Encoder. The latter is an app used to make PHP code human unreadable, so as to protect it from reverse engineering and / or unauthorized usage. Lots of script-driven apps, especially message boards, content management systems and e-commerce solutions are encrypted with ionCube PHP Encoder, so if you obtain a script and you notice that ionCube is among the website hosting environment prerequisites, you should make sure that your hosting server has the instrument pre-installed. Although it's not that difficult to install it if you have your own server, it's almost impossible to do that on a shared web hosting server due to the fact that the PHP environment shall have to be precompiled and all of the clients on the server will be affected.
