Is the Free edition only free for 1 year?

    I am looking for a little clarification on the "Free" version.

    In several places on the 3CX website, a "Free" edition is mentioned which seems to be the "PBX Edition".

    But there is also language on the website that discusses a maintenance package for the Free version.

    So… Is it actually free for one year, at which point you will have to buy a maintenance package in order to keep it up to date and functioning with a FQDN?

    If so, perhaps the 3CX website could be a little clearer on that matter.

    I have no problem purchasing the maintenance, if that is required, I LOVE 3CX, and it's totally worth the money.

    Hello @coreybrett81

    and thank you for the feedback. The Free PBX edition key is free and has a valid maintenance for a year. After that you will need to renew your maintenance in order to keep your FQDN and automatic certificate renewals and be able to access future updates.
