Dev and Live Domains

Activating a license key on a Live domain will automatically attach that domain to the license. See domain criteria below. If you need to detach a domain, contact us anytime.

Dev Domains

We’ll consider a domain as a development (dev) domain if it fits one or more of the following criteria;

  • The domain has a dev or stage related subdomain label; Examples of these are: test.*, testing.*, sandbox.*, dev.*, local.*, stage.*, staging.*

  • The domain has a dev-related TLD; *.local, *.loc, *.localhost, *.test

  • The domain has one of these stage related parents;

    *.kinsta.cloud, *.flywheelstaging.com, *.wpengine.com, *.sg-host.com

  • The domain is a single segment (localhost)

  • Domain is an IP address Example:

If your dev/stage domain doesn't fit any of the criteria above, let us know.

Live Domains

We'll consider a domain as a live domain, when it doesn't fit any of the above criteria.

Fair license usage policy

All our plans include an 'Unlimited' number of development domains. This means you can use one license key for as many development domains as you need, as long as you or your agency are actively developing them. However, sharing the license key with a third party, whether publicly (such as on your website) or privately (such as in forums or Telegram channels), is strictly prohibited.

The same policy applies to the statement regarding 'unlimited' live domains.

If we detect suspicious usage, such as activating numerous new domains daily, we will request confirmation that you are indeed developing them. Failure to provide confirmation may result in your license being locked without any possibility of a refund.

Renewing an existing license

When renewing an existing license before the expiration date, then the days left on the license will automatically be added onto the new license.

Note: If you're renewing a license, but have chosen a different tier, then the days left on the license will, unfortunately not be added to the new license.


When using your license key with a Multi-site setup. Activate your License Key on the Network Admin so it's activated on the primary domain (e.g. yourdomain.com).

This will allow you to update the plugin on the sub sites (e.g. sub.yourdomain.com).

Note: The plugin won't need to be active on the Network Admin all the time, only when doing updates.

Upgrading a license type

If you'd like to upgrade your license to a different tier, then please contact us.

Expired license behavior

An active Pro license provides automatic security and compatibility updates, along with access to Pro features. Once your license expires, you will no longer receive updates, and the Pro features will switch to 'backward-compatibility only' mode.

This means that all existing things created using Pro features will continue to function, but you will be unable to modify any Pro-related settings or create new content using Pro features.

Lite features will remain operational in their standard mode.
