The ionCube Standalone PHP Encoder is the leading script protection solution for PHP based software.
Launched in 2002, the ionCube Encoder was the first truly affordable, robust and fully featured encoding solution for PHP. It is now an established industry standard solution, trusted by developers in over 150 countries around the world, to encode PHP. It has led the way with features often immitated but unrivaled, and now with integration of the ionCube package Foundry, provides the only solution that in seconds and with a single click can secure your code, and produce a self contained installer to install and deploy your protected product to a local or remote server.
ionCube protection uses 100% compiled PHP, and utilising a closed source execution engine, ionCube Encoding tools deliver the best performance and PHP source code protection of any encryptor solution currently available. With features to meet the demands of both small and enterprise scale applications, the ionCube Encoder's unrivaled PHP protection, performance, and all round flexibility and featureset, is the ideal and only serious no-compromise solution for protecting PHP.
All ionCube Encoders offer a sophisticated command line tool. This is essential for exploiting the advantages that automated encoding can offer. The Windows and macOS versions also include a powerful Encoder GUI. The GUI is easy to use, offers high-speed encoding, and is packed with features to maximise your productivity and simplify product deployment. In addition, a low cost GUI upgrade extends the standard features adding builtin ZIP and tar.gz archiving, automatic FTP support and a dynamically customisable GUI that can prompt for user defined project-specific parameters.
