Frequently Asked Questions
How is hdoc licensed?
hdoc is available under the AGPLv3 license. Commercial licensing is also available through the Enterprise plan.
Can I use hdoc without creating an account?
hdoc can be used independently of the hdoc.io service. Users can compile their own binaries by following the instructions at hdoc's GitHub repository. Self-compiled binaries produce HTML files suitable for self-hosting.
Using hdoc.io has several advantages:
- Pre-compiled fully-static binaries are provided, simplifying deployment
- Free hosting on docs.hdoc.io
- Hosting is backed by a global CDN
Lastly, we ask that those using hdoc for commercial purposes support hdoc's development financially by purchasing a license or hosting plan. For those users, we provide support and priority service.
Do you offer private hosting?
The only option for private hosting is currently the Enterprise plan. Private hosting on docs.hdoc.io is in development.
Do you offer hosting on custom domains?
The only option for custom domains is currently the Enterprise plan. Hosting hdoc documentation while using your custom domain is in development.
