I am thinking of purchasing Backup Buddy and want to clarify the licensing because I am weighing this against another less expensive option.

The license option that I am interested in says it's for 2 sites but that licensing for 2 sites means upgrades and support. Based on that, I am reading it to mean that I can use the backupbuddy plugin for as many sites as I want (for myself and clients) but I would only receive updates and support on 2 sites, is that correct?

Hi Mav, :)

Thanks for posting about this!

To clarify if I understand your question correctly: we issue licenses for each site that BackupBuddy will be installed on (that you purchase a corresponding Membership for). After a license expires, you can continue using BackupBuddy and any of our other plugins on those sites, where you had them installed originally and where you had them licensed, without any issues to the actual plugin. The updates and support on those sites of course will be affected, as you mentioned.

Does that make sense? Please let us know. We would love to have you aboard!

Hi Jonathan, :)

Thanks for posting about this!

1 : If your license expired, you can install those plugins you already have on the sites you want. However, you won't be able to get any support nor any upgrades/updates nor any other perks.

2 : Technically, yes, we ask that you please buy another license to install any plugins on new sites OR for sites which were NOT used in your previously expired license. However, because our plugins are GPL, since you already got them, you do NOT need a license to keep on using them currently. #1 applies here.

Is that what you meant to ask? :)
