When it's time to push your site live we'll need to decide on the best license to get for Craft CMS. Here are your options.
When it goes to putting your site live, Craft has two licensing options, Solo and Pro:
This is what we usually recommend to clients. It’s not free but it has two important features that you’ll want if you’re larger than a team of one.
- Multiple user accounts: If you’ve got multiple people you want to allow access to the site to publish content then this is essential.
- Enhanced Content Previewing: this is a pretty cool feature that lets you preview your content side-by-side as you write it. If you’re writing a lof of content, this is a must-have feature for publishing.
A less common feature that requires a Pro license is
- GraphQL API: this allows you to hook up multiple services to your content. For example, you might have a mobile app or web application that you want to pull your content into. This is an advanced feature that won’t affect most people.
If you don’t need the above features, then the Solo license might be enough for you. You won’t get the enhanced publishing experience, and you’ll have to make do with a single user/password, but you’ll get all of the benefits of the core Craft experience.
If you want to go the Solo route, then you don’t need to do anything else. We’ll take care of it.
