Licensing and Pricing of West Wind WebSurge

West Wind WebSurge is open source with source code available on GitHub, but it is a licensed product. A free version is available that can be used without explicit registration or usage limits for personal use and checking out of WebSurge's features.

For use in a commercial or institutional environment, please purchase a Professional or Organizational license. Each licensed user requires a separate license, but a single user may use multiple copies of West Wind WebSurge on multiple machines, given that only one copy at a time is in use. An organizational license is available to allow any number of users running unlimited numbers of West Wind WebSurge within a single organization. Any purchased license is valid for the duration of the major release that it was purchased for (ie. 1.00-1.99).

To allow you to check out WebSurge completely, we provide a fully functional, unlimited version of West Wind WebSurge for download, so we rely on the honor system from users for supporting this product.

Thanks for playing fair!
