Feature Highlights

Highest security

Encoded PHP scripts are extremely secure and hard to decode.

  • Your source code is uploaded using our secure SSL channel. (Firefox only)
  • The php encoder resides on our own server so a hacker can't analyze it.
  • Our advance encryption algorithm uses a 128-bit key as well as a non-invertible function to encrypt php scripts.
  • During runtime, your code is loaded into our decryptor and then securely executed by the Zend Optimizer engine.
  • You are protected by our bulletproof security system every step of the way.

Highest compatibility

PHPCipher will run on most servers without additional configuration.

  • Only requires Zend Optimizer to be installed on server. Zend Optimizer is the most trusted php intermediate code optimizer on the market and is already installed by virtually all hosting providers.
  • No loaders required. Installation of loaders can be extremely confusing and may require editing php.ini.
  • ASCII mode safe. Most ftp programs upload php files using ASCII mode. If your php encoder is not ASCII mode safe, the uploading process alone could break your scripts.
  • Compatible with both php 4 and php 5 scripts.

Full licensing support

Unique licensing system gives developer unmatched flexibility.

  • PHPCipher’s licensing and rights management system is automatically activated during runtime.
  • Only need encode your scripts once. The license file can lock your code to any domain name or IP.
  • Programmer able to selectively disable parts of his script or allow PHPCipher to disable the entire script when no valid license is found.
  • Online licensing system with powerful API allows you to transparently distribute licenses from your own website by adding a few lines of code.
