A lot of script-driven applications, especially paid content management systems, encode their files in order to make sure that they will not be reverse engineered or tampered with. Many of them use an application known as ionCube PHP Encoder to do this, so if you acquire a paid script and you intend to set it up in a web hosting account, a software instrument called ionCube Loader has to be present on the server. Without having it, you cannot install the script or if you somehow find a way to do that, it will not operate properly because most of the script code will be encrypted to a point where it can't be interpreted. In this light, you need to ensure that ionCube Loader is installed if you get a fresh website hosting account and you would like to take advantage of some paid web application. If you acquire a shared web hosting account and the instrument is not present, it cannot be added because the whole server PHP environment shall have to be compiled again.
