    and www.testing.com's vbulletin have parents that said ... "AABBCC", another said ... "112233", and this "testing" ... 3 childrens on "AABBCC", 5 children on "112233" and 4 childrens plus 10 grandchildren on "testing"

    is that legal ?

    I have no idea mainly because I didn't understand it. Each license is good for one installation of vBulletin, i.e., one set of vB files on one domain with one set of vB database tables. Any attempt to filter content based on domain will require multiple licenses.

      Lets try again

      say i have 5 domain names ... one vbulletin on 1 of 5 domain ... 4 of 5 are parked to 1 of 5 domain ...

      i made 5 category

      domain 1
      domain 2
      domain 3
      domain 4
      domain 5

      none of em HIDE ... just different category for each parked domain and main domain

      legal ?

        What do you mean 'just different category for each parked domain'? If you want an solid answer then we need to know exactly what you want to do.

          1. 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:

            http://www.mscclan.com/forum/
            http://www.macsubculture.com/forum/
            http://www.mac-gamer.com/forum/

            Notice how each domain points to exactly the same content.
          2. Your forum is accessable from multiple domains but each domain shows a different forum style. This is OK and does not require multiple licenses.
          ok ... on the forum ... there will be category for each one
          parent : MSC CLAN
          parent : MAC Sub Culture
          parent : MAC Gamer
          child : video games

          so those are legal right ?

            The bottom line with vB licensing is that all different instances (if applied) must point to the same & exact content.
            You're spending millions of dollars on a website?!

              Do I get a warning if I made a mistake on it, so I can remove it ? ... I believe I will be ok what it said about many parked domains on ONE vbulletin forum

              Thanks for all replies ... Good Support

                what software does your board use now?

                It's missing the copyright.

                  so those are legal right ?
                  Is the forum style clearly the same and is it possible to navigate away from them?

                    I think the original poster is suggesting that he has a series of subdomains and each subdomain points to a different category of forums on his board.

                    My understanding of this situation is that Jelsoft ruled it was effectively different boards and would require separate licences. I am sure I remember an old thread on it somewhere.

                      I thought as long as it was clear that you were in just a part of a larger forum, it was ok.

                      When is Jelsoft going to offer a Site License?

                        I rather see a corporate or enterprise license for a single company, in the form of a volumed license.

                          Not every hobbyist can afford $2,500. How about a $399 Server license? As many domains but 1 server and no forum hosting. Not sure if Jelsoft should ever allow forum hosting (ala EZBoard, etc.). I think one website was experimenting with it with the blessing of Jelsoft. Could be completely off-base on that one.

                            Close to what I am asking ... but all parked domain DOES shows all different category (parked domain name) on a single forum ... therefore, nothing to hide from each one ... just one large forum of all (parked) domains ... it is legal, right ?

                              If you want a definitive answer you will need to be more clear. Until then I can only refer you to the information we have already provided.
