    some of this reply said that you can use the encryption but the other say it's impossible.

    good luck

    There should be a sticky thread about this...

    1. A visitor must download and save your source code on their computer in order to view your web page. If they don't have the source code, they don't see the site. Same goes for images. It's as simple as that.

    2. There are scripts, etc. that "hide" the source code from the visitor (encoding, no-right-clicking, transparent image overlays, file save redirects, etc.), but all rely on client-side scripting (e.g., javascript) to do it, so any visitor that realizes this can simply turn it off. Again, once someone can see your webpage, they already have your webpage.

    3. There is some webservice called copyguard (or something like that) that takes your source code and compares it to the rest of the web on a regular basis, and alerts you if it finds a copy on someone else's site. That still doesn't solve anything unless you're willing to take legal action, however. And I don't know how much it costs. On top of it all, what's to stop someone from copying your source code, buying this service, and then accusing you of stealing from them? I can't imagine it would hold up in court.

    4. Finally, and no offense intended, but your (or anyone's) source code is probably not worth protecting anyway. I'm not getting into the whole "philosophy of open sharing of information that the internet is based on" issue; html is just html. You may have some awesome server-side crap developed that's worth holding on to, but it outputs normal html and can't easily be "stolen" anyway (if your server is set up properly, that is).

    Yes, it is impossible.

    Good post, and I saved a copy in the coding tips & tutorials area.

    http://dynamicdrive.com/forums/showthread.php?t=48916

    So we can link to that any time this question comes up, and discuss it in there if needed.


    Also,
    5. There are some ways to make it harder (but not impossible) to steal the code. Doing this DOES NOT WORK, because people who steal are good at stealing. These ways will only annoy your normal friendly visitors and NOT STOP the thieves who know how to get around anything you can do.

    I totally agree with traq and djr33.

    The only thing that I want to add to this thread is a comment about certain HTML encryption systems.

    Whilst they can make it a bit more difficult to steal source code they can also make it impractical for search engine optimisation.

    I have seen examples of encrypted HTML sites where the search engine listing for the site is also encrypted.

    Not really what we're trying to achieve!

    Indeed. You should add that bit to the thread djr33 put in the coding tips section (see his post above)
