    Why Is vBulletin So Expensive? £91, Does that give you one copy or unlimited?

    Thanks

    vB is the same prices it was in 2000, despite inflation and the falling dollar. This, of course, makes it cheaper now than it ever was. And we've never had a price increase.

    There are many free alternatives. Since we are not going to lower our price, I suggest you consider one of them. Good luck.

      You may use it for one site only.


      vB5 is unequivocally the best forum software, but not yet...

                  Use your calculator before you purchase.
                  To convert pounds to dollars could cost extra.How much?
                  How is it cheaper?

                      If you purchase it in the UK remember you need to add VAT.

                      So it's actually £106.93.

                        You wont be dissapointed

                        I actually think the price is cheap for what vb is.
                        5 Stars for vbulletin man!

                          I'll second that. You could also go for the leased version at £48 and see how you get on for a year.

                          Everyone has different needs for a forum, and some can justify using paid software and some not. For me, it was probably the best £48 I have ever spent on my website. It installed well, it imported my old forum (with free additional help from VBulletin staff), it's quick, it works. My members are happy with it too.

                          Putting this in perspective, at £56 (I think it ended up £56.40, £48 + VAT) that's £4.67 a month!!

                            If your project is small and you are not sure if it's going to take off anytime soon, I suggest you go with a free alternative. Once your forum is popular, you should upgrade to vBulletin - because it actually is the most professional solution out there.
