  • vBulletin Multiple Domain Licensing - Redirects

    Hello,
    I was looking at this
    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.
    Your forum is accessable from multiple domains but each domain shows a different forum style. This is OK and does not require multiple licenses.
    Your forum is accessable from multiple domains and your forums are configured to show/hide certain forums based on the domain. This is not OK and requires an active vBulletin license for each domain. In this situation the forums appear to have separate content thereby making them separate forums in the eyes of the license agreement. Your forum content needs to be the same for each domain in order to qualify as a single forum.
    from another thread and was wondering if there are full forums on each domain but some forums redirect to another domain, does that require multiple licenses?

    Thanks.
    John

    Sorry but I dont know what you exactly would like to know. As long as the different domains point to the same forum (with the same content, design etc.) its okay to have one license and multiple domains. If the content depends on the domain you have to buy a license per domain.

      I guess he's talking about forum redirects.

      So he has multiple domains who point to the same forum installation, with the same real forums, but some redirect forums (so the ones that show up as a forum, but are a link) are different.

      I don't know if it's allowed though

        This would be this case then :
        Your forum is accessable from multiple domains and your forums are configured to show/hide certain forums based on the domain. This is not OK and requires an active vBulletin license for each domain
        Same forum but different content is shown.

            but will this get big issues with google duplicate content?
            coz its 100% same content with many URLs
