Self-Hosted Plan

Self-hosted licensing allows you to manually host Invision Community on your own server.
Alternatively, gain access to the entire suite and allow us to host your community!

  • Self-hosting your community

    Self-hosted licensing may be a good fit if you have special requirements, have already invested in an existing infrastructure and have an IT team that are able to support the demands of a complex web application such as Invision Community.

  • Consult your IT team

    Self-hosting a community requires a thorough understanding of maintaining an infrastructure that is compatible with our platform and suitable for demanding web applications. We recommend consulting with your IT team before choosing a self-hosted license, or you may contact us and we will be happy to discuss your specific needs.

  • Are you ready for self-hosted?

    Before purchasing a self-hosted license, we recommend ensuring that your infrastructure is compatible. The simple tool below can be run on your server to ensure the required software is available.

Our self-hosted licenses renew on a 6 month basis, and provide ongoing access to support, software and services. If you do not renew by your expiration date, your software will continue to function. However, support, software downloads and additional services will be unavailable until you renew.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • What are the requirements for the self-hosted software?

    Our software works with all modern web servers (Apache, nginx, lighttpd, etc.) that can support secure versions of PHP (with GD, mbstring and all default extensions) and MySQL.

    Please use our compatibility checker if you are unsure.

    Please note that if you choose to use Windows based hosting, our technical support services will be limited.

  • Do you offer refunds?

    For purchases for downloadable products, such as software, we do not provide any refunds after the software has been downloaded. To ensure a product is right for you before purchasing, please try our demo, or contact us with any questions you may have.

  • Do you provide support for server issues?

    No - our support coverage for self-hosted plans is limited to issues/guidance with our software only. For problems related to your server, we'll refer you to your host or IT team with more information. We recommend choosing one of our plans if you aren't experienced in server management.
