Although our technical support is limited to 1 site per license key, you can activate the FIFU plugin on unlimited WordPress sites from the same domain using 1 license key. Example: example.com, www.example.com, shop.example.com, example.com/shop, etc. A second domain is permitted for development/debug purposes only. So it is expected that the production and development sites will have the same theme and plugins. If you have multiple sites on different domains, you will need multiple keys.
