IonCube Loader is an instrument, that's necessary to run files that are encoded with ionCube PHP Encoder. The latter is an application designed to make PHP code human unreadable, to protect it from reverse engineering or not authorized use. Many script-driven applications, particularly discussion boards, cms and electronic commerce solutions are encoded with ionCube PHP Encoder, so if you get a script and you find that ionCube is on the list of web hosting environment requirements, you should make sure that your website hosting server has the instrument pre-installed. While it is not that hard to set it up when you have your own server, it is almost impossible to do that on a shared web hosting server as the PHP environment shall have to be precompiled and all of the clients on the server will be affected.

Our platform remembers the changes you make, so if you go back to the previous release of PHP which was active for your account, ionCube Loader will already be activated.
