Where can I host a website?

In order to useTMPortal, you have to download and install either on your own server or in the Cloud provided by your hosting company.

TMPortal works on Windows server and needs SQL Server (can be Express) and Dot Net Framework to be installed in the background.

We are not providing hosting services by ourselves.

We are planning to engage hosting providers to offer a simple and automatic installation of TMPortal in their Cloud.

What are Plugins?

Plugins consist both of website templates and components and are created either by us or by a third-party. They are available on the Plugin Store where you can find them and install.

Plugins extend TMPortal's functionality with additional features, content and services.

Plugins are free and in source code.

 

Can I use TMPortal for more than one website?

TMPortal allows you to have  multiple websites. All of them will be managed with the same Admin Center and will use the same components.

There is a limit, however, how many copies of TMPortal you can have installed. The rule is like this: you can have one TMPortal copy for each of your registered domain names. To install for another domain names, register again with a different email address.

The reason for this limit is that we want to prevent one company from installing the same TMPortal copy to their clients over and over again without us knowing about this. We need to be aware of all companies that are running their websites based on TMPortal. There are many reasons for that, being able to properly support them is one of them.

We are more than happy if each of users intending to use TMPortal registers and downloads software for themselves. This will make us aware of their existence and we will have a channel established with them for communication and support.
