Bulk Software License Agreement
Under normal conditions, our web software will support up to 100+ users. However, it is ideally designed for a small user group of 10 or less people. The way the Memory and Data Management features work, you will get better performance if you use one instance of our web software for 10 or less users per website instance in IIs, in your server environment. For this reason, we do encourage companies or corporate users to go ahead and buy bulk licenses, so multiple copies and "servlets" of the websites can be copied across different IIs websites and servers (one per IIs website instance). We can offer you a very affordable bulk license to do so that will greatly lower the per-web-site cost and increase the per-user-ROI on your end.
For this reason, if you find you have a need to buy licenses to support a large number of users, or, are an ISP or Host Provider wanting to incorporate our software as a value-added server addition, we encourage you to participate in our "Bulk Software License" program. We can provide you with large discounts on licensed copies. Because each copy has no CPU or user use limit, as far as licensing goes, this type of license can greatly benefit you in cost savings over the life of the software. In addition, because all our products DO NOT REQUIRE A DATABASE INSTALLATION, it means you do not have to manage costly database licenses, management costs, and set up. You can simply drag and drop our software across websites and server boxes quickly and easily, without worries that our portable XML database will interfere with your services. It's all self-contained in the product! With our Bulk License Program, your overall cost savings to you are lower in every way in managing media for all your users!Are you interested in selling, as well as hosting, our products? We can also offer you a reseller license, purchased on a yearly basis, and wrapped into the bulk licensing program, that allows you to release the software to your customers, and redistribute the individual license to them, as well as resell the software as a product and service, while still hosting the software. This allows you to host our software individually, but offer the user the ability to buy the rights to copy the software and all their files from your servers and move the product elsewhere. Because our software has a portable database and folder structure, this is easy to do using FTP. When customers leave, you can profit! All these and more can be obtained from our sales group. So, email us about your needs, and we will be glad to provide you with an affordable software licensing solution!
