PHPWCMS as a hosted service?

Post by Peekay » Sun 13. Mar 2005, 15:13

Can I offer PHPWCMS as a hosted service?. I would charge for site design and installation. The only access clients would have to the site would be through the PHPWCMS content management system for uploading and editing content.

Can I do this within the terms of the licence?

Generally - as long as you sell services, it should be OK (your customers don't have to pay for the GPL programm)

There are many hosters etc. out there, who sell CMS, e-Commerce, Nukehosts etc. and they use GPL programms where you just have to pay for the services (installation, Design, modifications, etc.)

Thx cyaneo. Yes, PHPWCMS would be simply be the CMS behind the install/design/customisation service.
