A Core refers to either a Physical or Virtual CPU Core:
If running in a VM, only virtual cores assigned to VM's running ServiceStack software requires licensing, otherwise it refers to physical CPU cores (not inc. HyperThreading cores).


A license is required for external user-facing (i.e outside core dev team) UAT, Staging and Production servers. All developers can share the same license key with the licensed servers.

Popular Use-Cases:

This licensing model is suitable for Corporate Intranet environments that have many developers deploying to fewer licensed servers.

Frequently Asked Questions

When is a Developer License required?

A developer license is required for each developer contributing .NET code to a project that references ServiceStack binaries (inc. transitive references). Licenses are not required for developers only building projects or only consuming ServiceStack Services.

Who can purchase Indie Licenses?

Indie licenses can only be purchased by an individual or a company with 10 or less total employees (excl non-profits) using their own funds, i.e. they can not be purchased (in any form) or reimbursed by any other company. Only registered non-profits can use Software Resellers to purchase Indie Licenses.

Can I upgrade from Indie to Business if needed?

Yes, when you upgrade to Business the un-used portion of your Indie license is discounted against the cost of your new Business licenses.

Can I reassign unused Business Developer licenses?

Yes, Business Developer licenses are floating and can be re-assigned when developers leave a project. List of registered licensed developers can be managed in your Account Page.

Can I upgrade between per-core plans without buying a new license?

Yes, you'll only maintain a single active subscription and upgrading replaces your existing subscription with the new one going forward. Any balance in the middle of a billing period gets automatically prorated by Stripe.

Can we mix and match between royalty-free and unlimited-developers licensing models?

No, you can only be registered to one licensing model at a time. You will need to cancel your existing subscription before you can move to the alternate licensing model.

Can we use customized builds of ServiceStack libraries under the commercial license?

Yes, Customers can use the Source Code Release published before their maintenance subscription expires, subject to the commercial license. E.g. any derivatives continue to be limited for use by licensed developers only.

How long is the 30% discounted Renewal pricing available?

Existing licenses must be renewed within 90 days after license expiration to qualify for the 30% renewal discount which extends the expiration of existing licenses by an additional 12 months software maintenance and commercial support.

What is the refund policy?

All purchases come with an unconditional 30 Day, 100% money back guarantee. Email us if you are not completely satisfied for any reason.
