Lots of script-driven applications, especially paid cms, encode their files to ensure that they will not be reverse engineered or tampered with. Many of them use an app known as ionCube PHP Encoder to do this, so, in case you purchase a paid script and you wish to install it in a hosting account, a software tool known as ionCube Loader must be present on your server. Without this, you cannot install the script or if you somehow manage to do this, it won't operate properly due to the fact that most of the script code will be encoded to a degree where it cannot be interpreted. In this light, you should ensure that ionCube Loader is installed when you get a new hosting account and you wish to employ some paid web app. If you acquire a shared hosting account and the instrument is not present, it can't be added since the whole server PHP environment will have to be compiled again.
