Licence is not for this domain

If you have a valid licence but it does not cover the domain that Umbraco is running on you might see the following message :

Warning banner

This licence check was performed against [YOUR_HOSTNAME_HERE] If this host is not listed in your domains then contact us and if this is part of the same project we should be able to add the domain to the licence for you.

If the domain is part of the project then we should be able to add it to the existing licence information and send you a new key.

Email us with the details and we will add the key.

If the site is part of a different project then you will need to purchase an additional translation manager licence. Licencees are per project/client and are not transferable.
