    One. One license per site, only!

    No. You need a license per site.

    1 site > 1 license.
    Another site > another license.

    Relevant section of the license agreement you'll agree to upon downloading:

    I think if you had ONE forum and there were multiple domains pointing to that forum and you were not attempting to make it look like 5 different sites, then in that case I believe it is just fine.


    Funsiteforums . xom = main forum and licensed forum
    funsiteforeveryone . xom = site redirected to main forum
    funsiteforsome .xom = site redirected to main forum

    Maybe it's okay to redirect to a subforum like this

    funsiteforhippos . xom - redirect to Funsiteforums . xom/forum.2/

    If you can't really afford it right now -but may want to transfer them one at a time as funds allow over - I'd give serious consideration to myBB. There is now a native importer for it.
    That's what I'm running 2 of my 5 forums on until I see if they start taking off or not.

    Good luck finding a decent forum software which isn't free and allows multiple sites per licence

    AND XF does have bulk discounts :) I believe after the 3rd license you start getting a discount.

    Actually I think it's after the second. If I remember correctly my 3rd one was $130 instead of $140.
