Re: Kentico for Small Businesses
Read the summary and conclusion on the Small Business licensing here.
In November, I <a href="/getdoc/e9af6a89-711a-49d1-84e5-4722c93369dc/Kentico-for-Small-Businesses.aspx">asked the blog readers</a> if they wanted to see a "Small Business" edition of Kentico CMS. Here are the results:<br />
First, I'd like to thank all of you who filled out our survey on Kentico <a href="http://www.kentico.com">CMS</a> licensing for Small Businesses. Unfortunately, it seems there's not much interest in such edition. We received answers from only 18 people out of 478 people who read the blog post (3.8 %) and out of 1,200 clients using Kentico CMS (1.5 %).<br />
The answers on what features should be included in such edition were very different and there was basically no pattern, except for the branding requirement of Kentico CMS Free Edition.<br />
So we decided not to release a special edition for Small Businesses at this moment. However, we understand the concern of those who use the Free Edition that having the <i>Powered by Kentico CMS</i> logo on each page may break the design of such sites and since version 4.0, we will require just a link "Powered by Kentico CMS for ASP.NET" in the footer of all pages in the Free Edition and we will provide more (smaller) logo options. This should help those who wish to use the Free Edition without big logos. (Of course, there's no logo requirement for clients who use paid editions.)<br />
Again, I appreciate the feedback we received.</p>
