What is a development license? How do I get one?

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 regardless of Support & Updates status).
  • 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!

For any questions about our Development Licence offering please don’t hesitate to contact us!
