    I had a question about one of the bullet points on the sitefinity.com/purchase page. "1 top level domain, unlimited sub-domains"

    The company I currently work for is thinking about purchasing a CMS and I was asked to get prices. We roll out a lot of sites and I was wondering about how the project manager handles domains. Does 1 top level domain mean that I can install it on a single web server (so multiple licenses for multiple web servers) and unlimited sub-domains is just the individual sites we'd create in the project manager?

    I'm currently using sitefinity on my local machine, but every site url is localhost/sitename/. I guess what I'm wondering is can I have 2 subdomains, one at www.abc.com and another one at www.123.com running off the same web server? or do they share that top level domain? (ie: www.mysite.com/site1, www.mysite.com/site2)

    Any clarity would be greatly appreciated. I haven't been doing web development for very long and most of this type of stuff I haven't had the opportunity to dabble in. (I've done a lot of page creation [jQuery/javascript/css/html/asp.net] stuff, but not a lot of architectural stuff)

    Hello Trevor,

    Thanks for contacting us.

    The installations don't really matter. Licensing is just about the main domains in use. Basically you need a license per site (domain). So if you license 123.com you can have site1.123.com and site2.123.com and www.123.com using the same license. The same is true for 123.com/site1 or 123.com/site2.

    This is all about deployment. You can develop as many sites as you want and using IP address or localhost will not show a Trial message.

    Christopher on cc is your primary sales contact here if you got more questions about licensing.
