BryZar offers free hosting for 30 days for SocialEngine trial clients per the terms and details below.

Terms:

  1. Trial accounts will not have server or database access.
  2. Trial websites cannot install third party plugins or themes. Once converted to a paid hosting account and SocialEngine license, themes and plugins can be installed.
  3. Only one trial per client is allowed.
  4. Trials are for testing the script and are not meant for performance and customization. Performance may vary depending on the distance between the server and user.
  5. BryZar hosting terms and privacy conditions apply to these trial accounts.
  6. If the 30 day trial expires with SocialEngine without purchase of a license, the website will be deleted.
  7. Trial websites can be converted to paid hosting with BryZar without loss of data if a SocialEngine license is purchased within the trial period. Upon conversion to paid hosting, server and database access will be sent via email. See details below for upgrading to a paid server.
  8. The trial server requires you to have a domain for the trial site.
  9. By creating a trial, you agree and acknowledge that your name, email and domain name will be shared with SocialEngine.
  10. By creating a trial, you agree and acknowledge that should you purchase a paid license and choose to host with us your license will be validated in order to unlock the trial to fully licensed site. This validation is automatically performed when you enter your paid license ID and is checked via API with SocialEngine. During the check, your name, domain and email will be validated against the information at SocialEngine.
  11. Domain verification is required to prevent abuse of the free service.
  12. Within the trial period your domain/subdomain used for the trial site should always point to the server IP, or have the value of the server IP. We have the right to cancel the server or site if the domain/subdomain has been redirected to another service.
  13. The domain/subdomain should not use proxy to redirect to the server IP. If you are using Cloudflare you should disable the “cloud” icon.
  14. The domain cannot be a free domain. (Example: .tk unless you live in Tokelau). Contact our support if you live in a location that has free TLD.

Important:

You need to purchase a SocialEngine license and upgrade your server before the trial expires. Once the trial expires the server will be deleted including all data and your trial site.
