DotNetNuke Module License Activation InteractiveWebs
Purpose & Scope

Understanding Activation

InteractiveWebs DotNetNuke Modules require a license to be activates on each sub domain from which the module is accessed.

The license is per sub domain, and NOT for each instance of DotNetNuke.

A sub domain example is:


In the case of and, these are considered as one single license. EVERY other sub domain needs it’s own license.

If you activate a module on then browse to the same module using another sub domain (like the module will not be activate with the new sub domain in the browser URL.



Each module will automatically enter into a 100% functional TRIAL mode the first time you access the module with any particular sub domain.

The trial period is automatically set from the date you first visit the module with any particular sub domain.



If you access the module will start it’s trial period from today, and may expire if you don’t activate.

If you then use another sub domain like the module will start a new trial and you will continue to be able to access the module on that sub domain.

Note: All the settings and modifications you make to any module in trial WILL be preserved and waiting for you once you activate the module license. So if your trial expires on your development sub domain, you can simply activate the module in it’s final location when you are ready to go live.

Before You Activate

We recommend that if you need to configure and test (development site) before going live, that you do that on a development sub domain (like, IN TRIAL MODE.

From that, Setup the module, test and be sure things are working. Don’t be concerned if you get things just right, and the trial time expires. Because as soon as you access the module page on a new sub domain, it will go back into trial, and be available fro activation.

All your module settings and customizations will carry over to the new sub domain when you access it. So in this example, if you are ready to go live with you can access the module page with that sub domain, and extend the trial, or activate the module.

For this reason we always suggest that you only activate your module on as your final public URL of your website.
