A development licence allows you to setup a secondary instance of WHMCS for testing and development purposes.
We recommend setting up a staging environment that allows you to test out upgrades and add-ons/customisations before deploying them in production.
Development instances of WHMCS must always be for internal use only and not be public facing.
- Those who purchase a license directly from us qualify for a free development licence key for each active paid licence (an active licence is classed as any Leased licence or an Owned licence with Active Support & Updates subscription).
- For those whose licence was obtained from a reseller, there is an option to purchase a development licence for a one-time $45 fee.
To request a development license, please don’t hesitate to contact our Customer Service and Licensing Team and we’ll be happy to get you setup!
