Can I activate Visual Composer on staging?

While activating a license, Visual Composer will automatically detect whether your site is on staging or in production. It does that by detecting if it is hosted locally, if the URL contains phrases like “demo”, "sandbox", “test”, “dev”, etc.

Can I use Visual Composer Website builder on a multisite setup?

Yes, it is possible to activate the Visual Composer plugin on a whole multi-site network at once. To do that, log into your root site and activate Visual Composer license from there. Then, activate individual licenses for each sub-site. Note that each sub-site will require a license of its own. So if you are planning to build 5 sub-site or more then you will need at least the PLUS license or higher.
