I'm buying a theme for my "website". The license for the theme allows me to use the theme on one "website". Sounds easy enough, right?
But what is a "website"?
It sounds like a troll question, but what I've think of as "my website" has multiple parked domains, let's say 11, but all for the same business. Like
Using location services I redirect visitors to the preferred domain in their location, so only 1 "website" is accessible to visitors.
Eg. If you visit the .com.uk site in Australia, you'll be forwarded to the .com.au domain.
Also 4 domains use domain forwarding, eg. the dot net site forwards to the dot com site. So the "website" is only accessible from 7 domains.
And "my website" is also a multi-site installation of Wordpress with slightly different content for some domains. For instance one site says prices include VAT while others say we include GST and another says nothing. Also there are some minor spelling differences. Let's say we have 5 sites on our multi-sites Wordpress install.
Again, through the magic of cloud-based servers, our site is maintained through a single portal but deployed in multiple locations let's say our cloud server has servers in 3 locations:
- US and
Demployments? Endusers? Companies?
However, I only put the theme in a single place, it's for a single end user and a single company. In my mind, it's a single website and I should only purchase one license.
Do I have more than one website? And what is the generally accepted definition of a website?
