I'm in the process of purchasing a Basic license on behalf of my business and we're wondering why we need to provide the information as per below. Could you explain? Thanks.


Please insert the subdomain.domain of your choice, for example,

If you do not have yet a name for your production server you may introduce temporarily the domain "localhost".

Each license is tied to a subdomain (Basic), domain (Advanced or Premium) and IP (Premium), and can run only on that subdomain/domain/IP. Besides the subdomain/domain/IP, the same license can run on localhost and private networks (classes A, B and C).

For example, if you buy a Basic license for you can't use it on If you buy an Advanced license, you can use it on *, this is all subdomains of a domain, but on others domains such or And a Premium license can be tied to a domain (as Advanced) or a whole IP for all domains and their subdomains that share the same IP.

If you don't know or don't have a subdomain/domain/IP, you can write localhost and change it other day if needed.

You can change it if you set localhost as subdomain/domain/IP, but only once.
