    Sure you can, just if vbulletin catches you using it, they are a fairly good company and have a very influential online pull / push and your host will cancel your account.
    SEMrush
    I do have the vbulletin (illegal version) as well, but that is only for designing purposes.

    Look at the features lists of both software and you can see what the differences are...I'm not going to explain that one because I could go on for pages and pages...and don't really have the time...you need to do a little research yourself :D...if you don't already know the differences why are you interested in buying it?

    As the person before be just said, if you install an old/broken mod, or install a good mod the incorrect way, or maybe two mods don't work with each other...then something will break...it has nothing to do with the forum software itself...it's the mods fault

    Illegal is Illegal...doesn't matter your purposes ;)...that's why they allow the 'test' install with each license ;)...use that for designing...not a nulled version...

    care to mention which site?...;) lol

    Well I am like any other person out their, and I know it is illegal I have only used it on my personal pc when developing, have not created any templates etc, was just stating that I have played around with it.

    I do know better than to use it, I was just being honest and stated that I do have it.

    They haven't yet:
    VB has been at 85 and 160 for years. I'd hardly consider a $15 price increase 'letting the software go to their heads'. It's called inflation kids. While the rest of the world has increased it's own prices in those 8 years, VB has remained solid. Increasing prices $15 is still barely a drop in the inflation bucket.

    Can you get it for free? Search, you'll find it. It's NOT legal, however, and you'll be reported. Do they act on these reports? You betcha!

    Man just stay away from Nulled VB.
    It just aint worth it. Nulled versions usually always get caught.


    Buy the software and sleep easy at night.

    If you can't buy it give up.... don't pirate it if you're ethical, if you're unethical you'll probably go ahead anyway.

    I don't think there's a way to tell, unless you have access to Jelsoft's records on Vb licenses....

    Say if I had two vBulletin licences. A forum on one, and the other one not in use. Would I be able to allow someone else use my licence and I charge them a monthly (rent) fee?

    Is that allowed. Everything will be kept in my account. They just get to rent it's use. Obviously owned licence. Any thoughts?

    You have to buy vBulletin. If you have it without a license. Well I dont know what happens next but, I know it's going to involve the law or something bad.

    as long as you change the info in your account to the correct url it's fine

    though be careful doing this...i used to rent out vb licneses like this...but when you get people like that, some of them will keep the files and use them again even after they've quit renting with you.

    When that happens your license shows up as being on 2 sites (because the files have your license number) and you will have your license cancelled if they don't shut down the offending site...I had a huge battle with a former customer about this and finally got his new host to shut him down 2 days before vb banned me...so while it is allowed...it's very easily abused and will hurt you in the long run..so I don't recommend it anymore

    I was thinking of doing to those who deserve vBulletin however for those who cannot afford it.

    I have a way to get around the installment problem you stated. I just needed to know if it was allowed.

    RE: Rented VB

    This is possible, and in theory a great idea. You'd have to be very limiting though. Say, no ftp access to the site at all. That way the user can't go in and 'download' VB, then move it to their own site.

    Good idea, maybe setting up a server specifically for 'renting' vb on a month to month basis. Handle email through something like cpanel's email interface (setup email only accounts for them), and keep the master logins for yourself maybe?

    I don't see how that can go wrong, but I'm not an expert by any means. As long as you deny all ftp access, or direct access to files, that should work.
