For example, if you installed and activated the plugin licence on a staging site and then you moved it to the production site, the homepage URL and Site URL could be different and this can cause the licence activation issue.

Security Firewall Blocking

There might be chances that your advanced Security firewall from a plugin or hosting is blocking access to our servers to verify the key. Please disable your Security firewall and try again.

Activation on Local & Staging Sites

You can use the licence on local-host and staging sites unlimited times, regardless of the limited website plan. Staging sites will be considered only if they:
