A Hostname Deployment License is required to deploy your SpreadJS application.

The SpreadJS developer bundle comes with one Developer License and one annual production Hostname Deployment License. To begin development, you'll get a developer key, and you can add it to your test apps. Read more about distribution keys.

How SpreadJS licensing works

  1. Download the free trial and install it.
  2. Buy the SpreadJS developer bundle for $1499 and we’ll register and send you your developer key.
  3. When you're ready to begin distributing your app to a live hostname, contact sales for an activation code and licensing management link.
  4. Enter your activation code into the provided link, enter your hostname(s), and it will generate your unique Hostname Deployment License key. (You may purchase additional hostnames at the rates below.)
  5. You're ready to deploy!

SpreadJS Hostname Deployment License

A Hostname Deployment License is required for each server hostname or named mobile/desktop application. A five (5) Hostname Deployment License pack could license these distribution scenarios:

  • www.domain.com
  • domain.com
  • sub1.domain.com
  • sub2.domain.com
  • sub3.domain.jp

You can purchase additional deployment licenses in packs as follows:

Number of Hostname Deployment Licenses* Annual Fee,
Paid Annually
Perpetual Licenses**
One (1) hostname $599 Contact sales
Two (2) to Five (5) hostnames $1999
Twenty-five (25) hostnames $7999
Unlimited hostnames $19,999
  • You must own at least one Developer License to purchase a hostname deployment multi-pack.
  • Perpetual licenses do not need to be renewed annually. If you plan to use your current version of SpreadJS in an application for more than five years, they're an excellent cost-saving option. Perpetual licenses are good only for one specific version of SpreadJS.
  • You must have an active Hostname Deployment License subscription or perpetual license to continue to deploy any application that uses SpreadJS. If you lapse in your coverage, you must remove SpreadJS from your application.


Optional Source Code Licenses

  • You must own at least one Developer License to purchase source code.
  • Source code license includes unminified source code. Editing rights vary by license rights.
  • Contact sales for pricing information.
