Hey there everyone,

So after a couple months of Consideration I finally purchased XenForo and I'm loving it! However, I do have a question regarding how many sites 1 license can hold. I'm wondering if 1 license is valid for 2 sites? If not how many can it sustain before I need to purchase a new license? And if I do need to purchase a new license is there any sort of discount for secondary sites or.. ?

I'm not quite certain how it works and I'd love a little more information about it. Thank you :)

This is what I posted earlier today on another thread.
Hopefully it answers your questions.

The terms of the license permit you to install it on one live domain and one test install, either locally or password protected and limited to your site staff.

You can change the URL/domain of the main installation at any point.

Each License may run one instance of the Software, accessible via one URL. Any attempt to circumvent this limitation is prohibited and will result in the License being revoked.
Before deploying the Software, you must register in the XenForo.com customer area the address (URL) at which You will use the License. This URL must be kept up-to-date. You may create a single additional test installation for the purpose of testing the Software. Any test installation of this kind must be password protected, and access to it must be limited to You and Your website staff.
The full terms of the license agreement are here: http://xenforo.com/license-agreement/

Currently there are no discounts available for subsequent licenses.
