This redesigned structure greatly simplifies our licensing model, allows for different budgeting approaches, covers various scales of implementations, and provides an additional value for modern tech-stack projects.
The most important changes include:
Base License Not Available for Purchase
As of January 1, 2020, the Base edition will no longer be available for purchase. This was a niche option for our customers with a limited comparable value, and we have made a strategic decision to discontinue it to streamline the licensing structure.
Clients who already have the Base License can continue using it, with a valid maintenance agreement under standard conditions.
Introducing the Most Powerful Subscription on the Market!
We are happy to introduce a brand-new Subscription Model which will allow customers to lower their initial outlay, spread their investment into a longer period, switch from capital to operational expenditure
also utilize our special automatic scalability option. This means that you can run your project on any number of load-balanced environments (servers, cloud instances) for better performance, without any extra fees to your subscription plan!
Finally, there is one more important feature built into every subscription—you can leverage our industry-leading Content-as-a-Service (CaaS) solution called Kentico Kontent to deliver any kind of online experience. That’s right. We are bundling the traditional CMS offering with our headless content platform so that you can use the best of both worlds and work with any channel, any technology, anytime! All new subscriptions will include a paid Kentico Kontent plan to enable Headless scenarios. This makes our Subscription truly unique and a tremendous value-for-money proposition!
Moving from Multi-site Packages to the Website Only Model
To further simplify our licensing model, we are moving away from multi-site (10; Unlimited) packages and introducing a per-website model with an attractive discount structure that grows with your order volume.
The details of the new pricing for both our perpetual licensing and our new Subscription Model can be found at https://www.kentico.com/purchase
Please note that this announcement does not include all possible purchase configurations and is indicative only while we finalize the complete licensing and pricing structure.
