probably not, no idea EXACTLY what zend guard is but i've seen other such
standards of encoding==obfuscating PHP sources. I don't provide services
like hosting for anyone, while i do support businesses and run their
servers, and if anyone offer his/her software in such form i (which
happened) i just say NO at least, preferably kicking ass.
Don't believe in "i use it because i don't my code i worked hard on it to
be copied by others" which actually mean "I am simple thief and i copied
almost everything and not even modified it much as i don't understand it at all, so i use
encoder/obfuscator to hide it".
Allowing any software without proper source and preferably documentation
in any business always ends badly.
So really - if you provide hosting service just run linux for that case,
on VM, and probably charge a bit more for that, or leave such case to
competition to handle.
in every other case just say no.
