In this article, we will provide a comprehensive explanation of the Domain Manager and its usage.
What is the Domain Manager?
The Domain Manager is a tool that displays a list of all domains utilizing your license key, along with the products installed on those domains and their respective versions.
With this feature, you can remotely deactivate and remove a domain, effectively preventing it from using your license key or receiving updates. Additionally, you have the ability to reactivate any previously deactivated domain.
Accessing the Domain Manager
To access the Domain Manager, follow these steps:
- Log in to your Beaver Builder My Account page.
- Navigate to the Domain Manager section.
- Click on Manage Domains.
By enabling the Notifications option, you will receive an email notification whenever a new website is added to the Domain Manager.
Product & PHP Version
Within the Domain Manager, you can obtain information about the products currently installed on each domain, including their version numbers and the PHP version being used.
Domains running the latest product version will display the version info text in Green, while out-of-date products will be highlighted in Red.
Utilizing the search function in the Domain Manager allows you to filter the list of domain names, making it easier to locate a specific website. You can search by domain name, product name, or version to identify domains with outdated products.
For example, if you are interested in finding websites using Beaver Themer version 1.0, you can search using the term
Beaver Themer: 1.0. Domains not using Beaver Themer version 1.0 will be excluded from the list.
Deactivate a Domain
Deactivating a domain disables the site from receiving remote updates from our server. However, the existing version of Beaver Builder will continue to function normally.
Deactivation prevents the activation of the Beaver Builder license on the local site via Settings > Beaver Builder > License. If you wish to restrict a client from using your Beaver Builder license, this option should be chosen.
The Domain Manager stores deactivated sites for future reactivation. You can delete deactivated domains from the Domain Manager by clicking the Remove button.
Reactivate a Domain
The Reactivate option allows previously deactivated domains to once again receive remote updates from our servers.
Remove a Domain
The Remove option provides the ability to delete a domain from the Domain Manager.
The Remove option does not result in the removal of the license key from the website. Beaver Builder does not possess the functionality to remotely delete license keys from websites.
If the license key remains active and you choose to proceed with the Remove option, the specific domain will be reintegrated into the Domain Manager when it performs its subsequent check for Beaver Builder updates.
In scenarios where you intend to prevent former clients from utilizing your license key to update their website(s), the recommended course of action involves deleting your license key from the website and then utilizing the Remove option. If you lack access to the website of a former client, the Deactivate option is more suitable.
Restore Removed Domain
- Visit the WordPress Admin Dashboard of the website whose domain you want to restore.
- Go to Settings > Beaver Builder > License.
- Enter or paste your license key and click the Save License Key button.
- Return to the Domain Manager, and the domain should be listed again.
