Note: If you paste your Self-Hosted license key while not being subscribed to Self-Hosted Enterprise on Ddosify Cloud, you can still use distributed mode on Ddosify Self-Hosted Community Edition but you can’t use Enterprise features. If you wish to upgrade to Self-Hosted Enterprise Edition after this, you can first upgrade your plan on Ddosify Cloud. Then when you click on “Upgrade to Enterprise Edition” on Ddosify Self-Hosted, a pop-up will appear. Then, the license key you’ve already entered will be checked again after you click on “Check Subscription”. If your Cloud plan is Self-Hosted Enterprise, your license key will be validated and you will be redirected to the login page.
