    Courier and multisite instance

    We have a multi site set up in Umbraco 7.1.8.  This essentially means we have multiple host names.  And we have the latest Courier package installed.

    When we set up Courier, do we want to set up multiple hostnames in Courier too? Both Live AND Dev/Test
    Would this mean we would want multiple host names in our dev or test environment that would map to our Live hostnames in Umbraco?  

    We really want to use Courier as our main transfer system for files/doctypes/etc. like these.

    Hi Carlos

    Courier licensing works on a per-instance licensing model. Its best explained with an exemple tho:

    You have your devsite, which is accessible from

    • dev.domain.dom
    • domain.local

    Then you have your livesite, which has these domains


    For this case, you simply need a license for the live domain: and optionally you can add a dev domain as: domain.local (2 dev domains are included in a standard courier license)

    This is because courier won't validate all domains you could use to access your website, it just checks the domain you are making the courier connection with. So as long as your dev site can reach your live site with - then thats the only domains you will need to license.
