Lots of script-driven applications, especially paid cms, encrypt their files to make sure that they won't be reverse engineered or tampered with. Many of them use an application named ionCube PHP Encoder to do this, so, in case you buy a paid script and you wish to install it in a website hosting account, a software instrument called ionCube Loader has to be present on the server. Without this, you can't install the script or if you somehow find a way to do that, it won't function efficiently since most of the script code will be encrypted to a degree where it cannot be interpreted. In this light, you need to ensure that ionCube Loader is present if you get a new website hosting account and you wish to take advantage of some paid web application. If you obtain a shared hosting account and the tool is not present, it cannot be added because the entire server PHP environment shall have to be compiled again.
