IonCube Loader is an instrument, which is needed to run files which are encrypted with ionCube PHP Encoder. The latter is an application used to make PHP code human unreadable, as a way to protect it from reverse engineering and / or illegal usage. A large number of script-driven applications, in particular message boards, content management systems and e-commerce solutions are protected with ionCube PHP Encoder, therefore when you obtain a script and you notice that ionCube is among the website hosting environment requirements, you need to make sure that your web hosting server has the tool pre-installed. While it is not that hard to set it up when you have your own server, it is close to impossible to do that on a shared hosting server as the PHP environment shall have to be precompiled and all clients on the server shall be affected.

Each change that you make takes literally just a single click and it takes effect at once.
