    Hello
    As you know we can use cloudlinux trial version 1 month for free
    Each email can get only one trial license, So we have to make many emails and register many times to get each trial license!
    Because we have many servers and number of them is growing... want first month to be free!
    I think it is better to change this method


    Thank you

    Are you doing charity or other non profit hosting? If so then you might find it useful to contact the CL sales guys directly and explain the situation.

    Generally trials are provided for you to try the product, unless they're specifically labelled first month free or get 12 months for the price of 11 etc etc The former being intended for no strings technical testing, the latter as a concious marketing strategy to increase sales

    Hello :)

    You can contact our customer service department directly for questions about purchasing a Cloud Linux license through cPanel:

    cs@cpanel.net

    Please note that trial licenses are available to ensure the software features and functionality meets your needs. It's not generally recommended as a method of obtaining free usage of the product.

    Thank you.

    Inflation is about 40% in my country. Our users don't pay in $ and we should pay servers and licenses in $!!
    So $12 is valuable for me.

    as Michael stated
    if you cant afford $12 for a License then its time to rethink your business model. trying to circumvent a vendor makes its living is not good for anyone

    Hi,

    You might want to migrate to other countries with lesser debt.
    For example: Singapore.

    Singapore is a debt free country, has low inflation and strong economy.

    Well, he is warning that Cloud Linux Company shouldn't do this. He didn't say anything about being poor. What the company should do is do ip based trial licenses. Not email based.

    This shoul be berg usefully. Why? I.e. I have server on cl but without cageFS. I would like to install cagefs but first I want to try enabling it on the test machine. What if I broke production server? The same is with php-selector. I would try instal it but not on production server. So this is the reason to have many trial licence.

    When Cloudlinux has 30 days free trial for each server, why we should not use it?
    Windows 7 is free for first 4 months, Do you condone it?
    I'm not poor, but our till is not proportionate our charge. so we have to economize!

    If we (and even you) was reach, We would not be here right now to be online for 24 hrs and touch servers and customers problems, but a tourism that his suspense is to find a better country to travel.

    10 * 12 = 120

    This is why Cloudlinux should no longer offer free trials.
    Trials are meant for testing if it suits your needs and if you're satisfied with the product, not for this.

    We don't offer free trial for each server. We offer one trial for one server per company. If you find that it matches your company needs -- we expect you to buy the software for all other servers.
