IonCube Loader is a software tool, that's required to run files that are protected with ionCube PHP Encoder. The aforementioned is an application which is used to make PHP code human unreadable, to protect it from reverse engineering and not authorized usage. Plenty of script-driven applications, in particular community forums, cms and e-commerce solutions are encrypted with ionCube PHP Encoder, so if you obtain a script and you notice that ionCube is on the list of hosting environment requirements, you need to make sure that your hosting server has the instrument pre-installed. While it's not that hard to install it when you have your own server, it's close to impossible to do that on a shared hosting server for the reason that the PHP environment will have to be precompiled and all of the clients on the server shall be affected.
