I am new to WordPress develoment and have spent many hours building a site and will be converting two other sites I maintain from standard HTML layout to WordPress (using a theme I purchased), then I got to thinking why not build my own but I dont know where to start and I found iThemes.com and started to poke around which lead me to the following questions:

1) How many licenese come with the Dev Suite?  (Since it include Backup Buddy which is licensed by site)
2) With Backup Buddy, if I am moving my site from a sandbox url say http://mydomain.com/wp to say http://mynewdomain.com (but they are on the same hosting company only will be in a new folder on my existing hosting account due the package of unlimted hosting space and domain forwarding from a different hosting company, as I am taking over webdesign for a customer)  Is that one license or two?  How is the license determined?  By Domain Name or some other means?
3) Is there a package where I can buy both the dev suite and Builder for a lower cost thatn $197 each.
4) what is the cost for support after 1 year (Since it is included in initial purchase), I realize the pricing could change.

If question # 2 is a bit confusing please let me know and I will do my best to explain it a little better.

Hi Ken,

1. the Plugin Developer Suite comes with unlimited licenses, see also: http://ithemes.com/developer-suite/
2. if you migrate a site, tecnically that would be 2 different licenses. But since the Dev Suite is unlimited licenses, it doesn't really matter. And, you can always remove and delete the license from the sandbox site if you won't be using it anymore after migration.
3. The $197 All Access Theme Pass also includes our "classic" themes. If it's just Builder you're after, Builder Developer pack, includes all current Builder themes (and those to be released during your subscription) is $150. As you can see at the top of our site,

we have a 33% discount coupon that runs out today,

4. Renewing a license can be done at 25% (customer loyalty renewal discount) of the price of the product.

I hope these help,
