Localhost Implementation

If you are installing XMod Pro on localhost (http://localhost), for development purposes, there is no need to activate. The module is fully functional for development purposes when run under localhost.

Additionally, localhost implementation does not have a time restriction.

If you activate a trial license, you will have only 21 days of use.

The trial activation process is outlined below.
