Microsoft Licensing

Microsoft Licensing

Microsoft permits its software to be resold by hosting companies such as Memset under the SPLA licensing program.

Different restrictions apply dependant on whether the server is virtual (VPS) or Dedicated.

This document will address the software and restrictions.

VPS Virtual servers

Customers can only use MS software supplied via your hosting company (Memset) or apply for License Mobility.  The only exception is if your VPS are hosted on your own dedicated host, then the dedicated server rule applies.

Dedicated Servers

In addition to Memset supplied SPLA software, customers can install their own MS software on dedicated servers and use their own licences.
