  • Question re: domains and licensing


    I had a question about the licensing as regards domains. It is stated that the license for vB is for a single domain, does that include subdomains? The reason I ask is because I was thinking of buying the vB CMS edition for my company site, but I want to have the CMS at the main site with at and the forums at

    Is this possible with the licensing model vB uses?

    The vBulletin license is not for a single domain.
    It is for a single active installation.

    What you're talking about is fine, but we do not support moving the forums/cms/blogs to subdomains.

      That much is very doable on the technical side. What I was more worried about was the licensing.

        Provided you only have one installation of the files, you can move it anywhere - just ensure you update the Members Area with the correct URL
