  • Licensing with Intranets

    Does the unlimited license purchase ($160 one) apply to a vBulletin board on an intranet site? Or is something extra needed?

    Thank you.

    It would be $160 for an owned license on one server using one database and one set of files.

      Hi there Nice to see you have an interest in the vBulletin product.

      The 'unlimited' you mentioned applies to the time period you are allowed to run an instance of vBulletin on your web site. (And not just for 12 months). Unlimited time == Owned license.

      A owned license can run on a localhost setup behind a firewall, a Intranet, Internet or otherwise web server that runs on a system. As long as it is 1 instance as subscribed in the above post by user HostOrbit.

      There are no additional fees or different type of licenses for vBulletin being run on an intranet.

        It's my undrstanding that you can have a second instance, as long
        as it is not open to the public. (for testing)

          You are 50% right.

          But let me be clear on this:

          When you have a valid license than you are allowed to run a second instance for TEMPORARY TESTING purposes (behind closed doors!)

          If you have a valid licence, you may set up an additional test forum in order to test code, template and database modifications. To make this clear to us and our licence verification procedures, place it in a directory called 'testvb' and be sure to password protect it. It must not be accessible by the general public.
