Introducing LicenseBox – the all-in-one solution for managing licenses and updates for your PHP applications, WordPress plugins, and themes. Our easy-to-use platform offers a user-friendly interface and requires minimal server resources to run. But that’s not all – LicenseBox also comes with integration examples, sample codes, and a built-in helper file generator to make integration into your existing applications a breeze. And if you’re concerned about security, we’ve got you covered with our inbuilt PHP obfuscation service.

LicenseBox consists of two parts: the main script (admin panel) that you install on your own server, and a single helper file that you include in your PHP application. You can also easily access the API using any other programming language, thanks to the powerful REST API.

If you need custom integrations for PHP, Python,, C#, C++, Adobe JSX, or other languages, get in touch with our team at
