Licensing question...

Ok I've seen the FAQ on subdomains and that makes perfect sense, but what about a website that uses multiple domains to point to the same site.

Either domain you hit (in my case), you see the exact same website, nothing different at all just a short domain and a long one (one is simply going to be a mask of the other and I'm willing to provide the info on it to Milonic when the site comes live to prove the 2 domains show the same site). We own a short version of our company name and the long version is about to expire from a company that is defunct and we may start using it as our primary.

Not listing my domains because I don't want to risk anyone attempting to register the domain we're after.

Just for your info, I think if you go to networksolutions you can register to get a domain that's about to expire, back order it or something. I'm not sure how it works except I have to believe there's some kind of charge :lol: But since you are a business I thought you might want to check it out.

Now, this is not official from Milonic so dont legally bind them to what I say. But you should be fine since they are the same matter how to you get to it, if its the same, then its just one license. That would be like trying to charge you a license for and because I would be able to get to your site using that too! :lol: (bogus IP by the way)
But then again, Milonic will have to back me up on that. ;)

If its the same site with the same content, it will be covered by the same license. Just like isn't physically the same as but most people point both domains to the same directory on the server.

If the content is different though it may or may not be subject to further licensing issues.

It's a very grey area and something that occasionally needs negotiation before we can reach an agreement.
