How does licensing work?

I’m a seller on Envato Market (CodeCanyon) so I’m bound to their license system. If you want to read more about their licensing, please go and read the information about the Standard License. They even have a FAQ page that should answer most of your questions as well.

The questions that I get most often are the following ones:

Do I need a licence for each domain?

The short answer is yes. Even the extended licence does not allow you to use it on multiple domains. As far as I know, Envato has no plans to change this in the future.

Do I need multiple licences if I’m in a multi-site environment?

  • Yes, you will need multiple licences if each site in your multi-site has its own domain name.
  • No, you don’t need multiple licences if you use subfolders or subdomains for your multisites.

Do I need multiple licenses if I use it on a test domain (like a staging environment)?

Technically yes, if the test domain is different from your live domain name. Otherwise, no.

I want to disconnect my purchase code from an old domain

  1. Please visit this page and disconnect your purchase code from any domain.
  2. If you’re not already logged in, use the green “Login with Envato” button on the login screen to see your purchases.
