IonCube Loader is a tool, that's needed to run files that are encoded with ionCube PHP Encoder. The latter is an app designed to make PHP code human unreadable, to protect it from reverse engineering and unauthorized use. Various script-driven applications, particularly forums, cms and e-commerce solutions are encrypted with ionCube PHP Encoder, which means that when you obtain a script and you find that ionCube is one of the web hosting environment prerequisites, you should make sure that your hosting server has the tool pre-installed. While it's not that difficult to set it up when you have your own server, it is close to impossible to do that on a shared web hosting server due to the fact that the PHP environment shall have to be precompiled and all clients on the server shall be affected.
