IPBan Pro offers two versions of the software: Personal (single installs) and Datacenter (many installs, for data centers).

IPBan Pro Datacenter and IPBan Pro Personal need one license for each physical or virtual machine installed. Please purchase a subscription for every machine. If you have 10 machines running the datacenter client for example, you need 10 licenses.

IPBan Pro api keys are licensed per web admin utility install. You do NOT need an api key per client installed for the datacenter or personal edition. For example, if you have 100 data center clients but only 1 web admin utility installed, you only need 1 api key subscription.
