View Full Version : Lifetime License from my Host

11-11-2006, 05:20 AM
I have just rented a Dedicated in a datacenter.
So I guess I will get a IP from their range on this server.

I am used to CPanel/WHM but they offer DirectAdmin for a cheaper cost on this Server. Since it looks good in the demo, I think I will give it a try.

If I buy a Liftelime License from them, will I have to be dedicated to stay inside their Datacenter on this IP for the rest of my life on this Licence? Or can this be changed if I for some reason move outside of this datacenter later?

Best regards

I should have read the FAQ before posting ;)

It looks like it is possible to change IP if You contact DA


Once the transfer is complete, email sales@directadmin.com again to delete that license, and to put the new IP into the old license. Once that's set, then update your new server to use the old license

The page you refer to refers to licenses owned by you. Unless you get a DirectAdmin login and password you do not own a DirectAdmin license.

Data centers can buy what's called an Internal License, but that license belongs to them (though they may certainly charge you for it) and cannot be transferred to your ownership.

Whether or not you can change the IP# on a DA license depends on whether it's in your name and bought at full price, or in the name of the Data Center and bought at the special Internal License (http://www.directadmin.com/internal.html) pricing. If the latter, then you cannot transfer it into your name, or away from the Data Center.

If the Data center told you they sold you a Full DirectAdmin license and didn't put it into your name, then your argument will be with the Data Center.

Most likely your provider is offering internal licenses, and the prices are much cheaper than buying from us. In this case, if you leave their service you do NOT keep the license.
