    I just purchased Xenforo for the purpose of developing and getting familiar with the software and its code on my local server. I have not decided on a domain name yet. In the customer area, I am being prompted with, You must enter your site information before downloading. Since, technically, I don't have a site (yet), what information am I supposed to put here so that I can get my hands on the code?

    I have not tried anything but a domain name so I can't say for sure, but you could always put a domain name you own for now and switch it later I believe and just put Dev License or something for the site title.

    I know you can update the URL later. I would put in a filler value until you decide on a domain name, then update it. I like EQnoble's suggestion of or localhost, that way it's obvious you are running a local install for the time being.

    All in the FAQ...

    Do I need to enter the domain URL of where I intend to install the forum when I download the software?
    If you don't currently have a domain or don't intend to install it at this time, you can use localhost/
