Lots of script-driven applications, particularly paid cms, encode their files in order to ensure that they won't be reverse engineered or tampered with. The majority of them use an app named ionCube PHP Encoder to do this, so, in case you purchase a paid script and you wish to install it in a web hosting account, a software instrument called ionCube Loader must be present on the server. Without this, you won't be able to install the script or if you somehow manage to do that, it won't work effectively for the reason that most of the script code will be encrypted to a point where it can't be interpreted. That is why, you have to ensure that ionCube Loader is installed if you get a fresh web hosting account and you would like to employ some paid web app. If you get a shared website hosting account and the instrument is not present, it can't be added as the whole server PHP environment shall have to be compiled again.
