A distribution license is required to deploy your Spread.Services application.

Your distribution license is included with your Spread.Services developer license, and you'll need to register your domain name with sales when you're ready to test or deploy.

How Spread.Services Licensing Works

  1. Download the free trial and install it.
  2. Buy Spread.Services for $799 and register your developer key.
  3. Send your domain name to the sales team so it can be registered for distribution. Additional distribution licenses can be purchased from us.sales@grapecity.com.
  4. You're ready to deploy!

Spread.Services Distribution License

A Distribution License is required for each server hostname or named mobile/desktop application. You can purchase deployment licenses in packs as follows.

Number of Hostname/Application Distribution Licenses* Annual Fee,
Paid Annually
Perpetual Licenses**
Two (2) to Five (5) $999 $3499
Unlimited $2999 $9999

You must own at least one Developer License to purchase a distribution pack.
Perpetual licenses do not need to be renewed annually. If you plan to use your application for more than five years, they're an excellent cost-saving option.

A five (5) Hostname/Application Distribution License would license up to either of these distribution scenarios:

  • www.domain.com
  • sub1.domain.com
  • sub2.domain.com
  • sub3.domain.com
  • sub4.domain.com


  • sub1.domain.com
