    Hi!

    I install trial version of Sitefinity and create my site. After that I bought license key for standard edition of Sitefinity and copy this license key to the forlder as in manual. But it still write me that I'm using trial version. What I'm doing wrong?

    Hello Paul,

    Restart your application, make sure you have generated the license key for the correct domain. Check whether the key is accessed by your website- check the meta content value after the colon. If the application access the key there should be value :1. You can send the website link as well.

    Hi Ivan!

    Thank for your reply. But I want to know how I can use my Sitefinity in Intranet whithout messages about trial version. In Internet domain will be correct but what about Intranet?

    Hello Paul,

    Thank you for your follow-up.

    Each Sitefinity license can be used for an unlimited number of sub-domains, i.e. by registering a key for mysite.com, you will be able to use it for all subdomains - www.mysite.comhttp://support.mysite.comhttp://mysite.com, etc.). This applies to complex country-specific domain names like yours.

    Please feel free to use a sub-domain for your intranet website (e.g. "intranet.jurfak.spb.ru") and let us know if you encounter any issues.

    You are welcome to refer to the following forum post:
    http://www.sitefinity.com/support/forums/support-forum-thread/b1043S-bbbahh.aspx

    Let me know if I can assist you further.

    Lidiya,

    The example domain names you give are typical of sites on the internet, but not of intranet addresses, in my limited experience.  For example, we access ours by http://WindowsServerName/index.aspx.  Would we license Sitefinity using WindowsServerName in this instance?  If so, doesn't that limit our ability to migrate the site to a different server later?

    Hello RSewell,

    The host is "WindowsServerName", so the key is valid only for this host its subdomains and all website that are under this host. If you change the host name to WindowsServerNameNew the key will not be valid anymore.

    Thanks, Ivan.

    To keep it portable to new servers, I'm thinking about adding a Host entry to our internal DNA server, using the site's name, "CorporateIntranet", that resolves to the internal IP address of whichever server the site happens to be on.  If we need to move the site, then all we have to do is change the DNS entry.

    So, the top level domain name I use to license Sitefinity will be "CorporateIntranet", and not "CorporateIntranet.com" or "CorporateIntranet.net".  It is allowed to license SF using a name without a dot something?

    Hello RSewell,

    You can generate the license file for a host without extension  like CorporateIntranet. Note that, since you are going to make sour network routign the Url.Host of the Current request should be CorporateIntranet. For more information you could contact our sales department.
