    I was somewhat confused about installing zend guard loader as there is this ominous sounding license agreement. So a sales chat with Zend revealed the following and I think it is good for the hosting community to understand this.

    You
    Trying to understand under what conditions we can install zend guard loader on our web servers.
    Chat started
    Howard joined the chat

    Howard
    there are nolimits

    You
    When I go to install program on cpanel (easy apache), it warns me that I need to accept the license agreement, which talks about the licensee paying your fee

    Howard
    there is no fee for the loader
    the Zend Server yes there is a fee

    You
    so for loader, who is the licensee, I am guessing whoever developed the php script?

    Howard
    the licensee is the owner of the server on which it is installed

    You
    Ok, so I am a shared web hosting company. I own the servers, that makes me according to your comment the licensee, which means it is free or not?

    Howard
    it is free

    You
    Thanks for that, but I still have the issue of accepting http://static.zend.com/topics/guard-license-agreement.txt

    Howard
    well that is our standard EULA

    You
    wow

    Howard
    if you are using Zend Guard Loader there is no charge for it
    if you are still uncertain then you could send an email to [Removed]
    he looks after your market

    You
    thanks for the help

    Howard
    welcome
    bye for now

    Hello,

    I recommend reaching out to the contact email suggested in that support chat with specific questions you have about their license agreement.

    Thank you.
