Dev and Live Domains

Note: 1 website in your license is equal to 1x dev domain and 1x live domain.
Activating a license key on a website 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;
  1. 1.
    The domain has a dev or stage related subdomain label; Examples of these are: test.*, testing.*, sandbox.*, dev.*, local.*, stage.*, staging.*

Live Domains

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