Consider using ioncube. (Google search for it).

yes, but ioncube may be cracked???
Because it is popular

Good point.  Show us how you have cracked any ioncube site, please.

I'm using phpShield
But I search google and found seem some one can crack it?

And I think ioncube is the same?

(ZendGuard may be decompled, but it has 'Obscure'?)

Let's go back to the essence of this question.  Show us how you have cracked any ioncube site, please.  

The same can be said for phpShield.  Show us how you have cracked any phpShield site, please.

My point is simply this: IT security is not an absolute, it is a continuum, and the security methods that are used for nuclear launch codes, financial transactions, medical records or bowling scores are very different.   And the field is mushrooming: IT security is now a full-time four year college major at the University of Maryland.  A central issue in the course of study is the matter of determining what security measures are appropriate for the machinery, power supplies, communication lines, application and data.  None of those details are present in this question, so we cannot really give you an educated answer.

My recommendation remains the same.  Use ioncube.  And continue to use it until you find that someone has cracked it and stolen your code.  Then use something else.  Or reconsider the business model that requires you to keep your program code a secret.  There are plenty of open-source systems that have robust consultancies (cf: Red Hat).  The software does not need to be a secret.  If it provides good value, people will come to you asking for your help and advice.
