Kirby combines the transparency of an open-source project with a friendly community and a fair license model.

We like to keep things simple: One price, all features, no fees, no subscription.

  • What do I get?

    A Kirby license allows you to run a single installation on a single domain. Kirby is a self-hosted CMS. You have to bring your own hosting and domain on which you will run Kirby. The license is a one-time payment, there is no subscription, no yearly or monthly fees. See the license terms.

  • Can I run additional websites with a single license?

    No. A license is valid for a single Kirby installation, running on a single domain. If you plan to add additional installations (i.e. under additional subdomains or subfolders) you need to purchase licenses for each of those installations.

  • Will updates be free?

    Minor updates of Kirby (e.g. 3.1 to 3.2) will be free. Users with an older license will get a discount for major upgrades (e.g. 3.x to 4.0).

    Yes, students, educational projects, open-source projects or non-profit organizations can apply for a discount. Please contact us to apply.
