What is the cost exactly pls?

Hi
Your homepage is unclear about the total cost. From what I can understand therevis a start-up licensing fee of $140 (Canadian?)for the first year. Then it will cost $40/year to renew the license. The installation is $50 and then I have to find server space to rent somewhere for ?
You also list some other add ons but you're not clear on whether thos add-ons are necessary to have a fully functional forum. Also, when i tried your demo, it did not give me a sense of the powers and features i would have as an administrator ie. banning spammers, accepting members etc.
I reaaly am impressed by the software i just need a clearer understanding on start-up costs and ongoing costs. Also, is there a way to take donations on the site, from members to cover these costs?

Thank you.

The cost is $140 for the first year.

Thereafter, annual support and updates cost $40.

Installation is an optional service.

Hosting and domain are separate.

Our help manual details the features, including spam management, banning and account upgrades: http://xenforo.com/help/manual/

Ok so when you say hosting is " separate", does this mean that you offer that for an additional cost or that consumers have to find hosting elsewhere on their own.?

No, but you'll want to renew your license if you want to stay up-to-date, if I recall.
How about the support, what kind of support is provided?

How about if you skip a year of updates, will you have to pay $80 the following year for the updates?

Ticket support and community forum support are included.

No, you won't need to pay $80, as you can still use your license while it is expired, and paying that $40 can be done at any time which will allow you to download the most up to date version and use the ticket support.
