A lot of script-driven applications, especially paid content management systems, encrypt their files to ensure that they will not be reverse engineered or tampered with. The majority of them use an app called ionCube PHP Encoder to do that, so if you acquire a paid script and you'd like to install it in a hosting account, a software tool known as ionCube Loader has to be present on the server. Without it, you cannot install the script or if you somehow manage to do this, it won't operate appropriately as almost all of the script code will be encrypted to a degree where it cannot be interpreted. That is why, you need to make sure that ionCube Loader is set up if you get a fresh hosting account and you'd like to employ some paid web app. If you buy a shared hosting account and the tool is not present, it can't be added because the whole server PHP environment will have to be compiled again.
