IonCube Loader is a 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, to protect it from reverse engineering and illegal use. Lots of script-driven apps, particularly discussion forums, content management systems and e-commerce solutions are encrypted with ionCube PHP Encoder, so if you acquire a script and you notice that ionCube is on the list of web hosting environment requirements, you have to make sure that your web hosting server has the instrument pre-installed. Though it's not that hard to install it if you have your own server, it is almost impossible to do that on a shared web hosting server for the reason that the PHP environment should be precompiled and all the clients on the server will be affected.
