  • Why vBulletin cost so much money?

    Hi.
    I'm Gil and I'm from Israel.
    in Israel most of people using IPB and PHPBB, 'cause they are free.
    Well, I have to say that vBulletin is very professional, But it also very expensive.

    Please, can you explain me why vBulletin is so expensive?

    TNX!

      You said it yourself: because it is professional.

        Well, i hope that this month i will have enough money to purchase vBulletin (look, 160$ = 500 NIS ).

        I have one question:

        If I'll purchase vBulletin, How can I make it to be in Hebrew?

        TNX!

          There is a Hebrew language pack available in the download forums. Once you are a customer you can download it.

                    Come to think of it, isn't IPB more expensive than vBulletin.?

                    I've not checked their pricing ever since it started changing every 2 weeks, so I'm not sure.

                        Owned license, yes. Leased license, no.

                          IPB is $10.05 cheaper on the lease license, and $25 more than vB on the owned license. vB 3.5 Plugin system alone is more than worth the money, especially when it's cheaper to own one

                            If IPB offers you what you are looking for, go for IPB.
                            If vB offers you what you are looking for, go for vB.

                            The choice is always yours. The value of the product is cheap for vBulletin compared to what it is actually worth feature/security/professionalism, and market-wise.

                              In short, vBulletin is a class product with a vast amount of features, especially in 3.5.

                              Its well worth the money, as the money means vBulletin actually gets plenty of development time.

                              Don't get me wrong, I'm all for Open Source, I run open source sites. But vB is definately worth the money
