Developer Special: Buy one, Get one Free

The WPSSO Core Premium plugin is licensed based on the WordPress Site Address URL (see the WordPress General settings page). Typically, development, staging, and production sites, for example, would require 3 licenses. In the spirit of helping our fellow developers, we are offering a free development license for every license purchased.

If you purchase a license for example-domain.com (or www.example-domain.com), you can also register dev.example-domain.com using the same Authentication ID. This allows developers to purchase a license, develop a customer’s website, and then change the WordPress Site Address URL value upon delivery, without having to purchase an additional license for the production website.

The developer special also applies to multisite licensing — if you have 2 licenses for example-domain.com/siteone/ and example-domain.com/sitetwo/, you could also register dev.example-domain.com/siteone/ and dev.example-domain.com/sitetwo/ using the same Authentication ID. The installation order is not important – you can register a development site first, and the production site afterwards.

In summary, example-domain.com, www.example-domain.com, and dev.example-domain.com are all considered equal for licensing purposes (they share the same license). All other WordPress Site Address values, like test.example-domain.com, staging.example-domain.com, etc., must be licensed to use the Premium version.
