Evaluation Period Management
Open Source Edition
Open Source Edition does not have an evaluation period, and is free of cost. Use as is.
NCache Community comes with all features during the initial evaluation period of 60 days. Once this evaluation period expires, you can either purchase NCache license or request an extension to your evaluation period, by getting the Extension Key from Alachisoft Sales. Please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org (or to your account manager if you are already in touch with him/her) and ask for an extension key. You will be provided with a 30-day extension key.
