  • License forever?

    Hi there,

    Is the forum license you can purchase for $195, forever working (and is it just a one-time price that needs to be paid or annually?).
    And is it possible to re-use the license for another website (when just using it for 1 website at a time though)?

    Thanks in advance,
    Skyfe.

    AFAIF, it's the lifetime of version 4. One time fee.
    You can move your license to another site, providing it is only being used on one site and don't forget to update your license with the new url.

      You can buy it, never pay again. And all the upgrades and updates to version 4 are free.
      But after version 4, if you want to upgrade or update to version 5, you have to buy the version 5 license type.
      If you don't want version 5, you can keep running version 4 forever.

        You are paying for the support and updates after that. You can run the version you paid for indefinitely.

          With Forum, you only receive (I believe) 30 days support.

            That's correct, tickets for 30 days, and then you pay per year. The forums were told to not be official support channels. So one shouldn't assume to get free support there after 30 days unless someone has time to reply.

                Those licences do not expire,you can use the software forever.
                What is expiring is their upgrade option.

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