Ontogeny is available under 2 editions as per below :

Leased Edition

Leased Edition

Leased Editions are as its name indicates “Leased”. You don’t own the license but you simply lease rights to use it for certain period of time. You still get all features available under the license purchased. By default each license is bundled with 6 months to 1 year long license maintenance of type “Persistent Maintenance”. Beyond this duration you must renew your license maintenance using anyone of the 4 options available.

Even though you don’t own the license but you still own 100% of the data and anytime you can receive full data in meaningful electronic formats including Xls, Xlsx, csv, xml. Data includes all network marketers’ information, their genealogy relationships, their purchase transactions, bonus computations, payment and other wallet transactions etc.

All leased editions are hosted on hosting facilities arranged by us. Any leased license that is not renewed will be taken down after grace period and treated as expired. Any expired leased license can be renewed by paying for activation charges that will be computed as 20% of “Persistent Maintenance” charges for the entire period license was expired or US$ 100 whichever is higher. These charges are required so that we can upgrade your expired license with latest security/ other necessary software patches, test it and re-deploy it online.

Leased Edition requires that your primary domain used for hosting Ontogeny MLM Solution uses publicly accessible Whois information and contact details provided are verifiable. If you wish to keep your contact details private under Whois then you must purchase Perpetual Edition.

Perpetual Edition

Perpetual Edition

Perpetual Editions are the “forever” licenses that you own. You may still choose to host the solution using our hosting facilities or choose to host the solution on your own servers or use any other 3rd party hosting vendor directly. You will be provided with complete deployed solution and full database used. You are not required to renew License Maintenance option with us in order to continue using the MLM solution forever. However all internet facing solutions require regular maintenance in order to keep your precious data confidential and secured. If you continue using solution on regular basis then we highly recommend using Persistent Maintenance option or higher.

Do note that there is no difference in quality of the various licenses based on different edition. Its exactly the same software, in one case you rent it for some duration and in second case you own the license.
