  • A simple questions before buying...

    Im thinking of buying an owned license for vbulletin. It said its good for one domain. Lets say I have a domain, . I shutdown cause I want a whole new different board and theme. Is it still legal to change my license to a different domain?

    I think when it means you can register vbulletin with one domain, it means that no 2 domains can host the same licensed vbulletin. Im not entirely sure so I want to be sure that this is possible by switching domains and webhosts.

    Yes thats legal,

    You have to delete the vBulletin files from that domain and change the url in your member's area. You are only allowed one instance of the software (one installation) at a time per license.

      Just though I'd add this:

      You can have it on more than one domain, but the second one (or third etc etc) has to end up the same as the first...

      Look here:

      Your forum is accessable from multiple domains but the content is the same for each link. This is OK and does not require multiple licenses. My site is an example of a multi-domain setup that is allowed:

      Notice how each domain points to exactly the same content.
