Each Unfold3D licenses are associated to at least one Host ID (you can have two max). And the license file which is generated using the Host ID allows to run the software on that computer.
If you have a valid license you can find the Host ID in the Menu->Help->License Manager (look at the bottom of the dialog).
The secondary Host ID is simply a supplementary identifier of a secondary computer that you can use to run Unfold3D with.
For example you may have a first Host ID associated to your desktop computer, and associate the secondary Host ID to your laptop, so that you can use Unfold3D outside your home.
It is however not allowed to use both licenses simultaneously.
At the moment you buy your license in the shops simply enter both Host IDs.
Also, it is not necessary to use the same computer that will run the software to buy license and activate them. Lets say you have a computer A that is connected to the internet, and a computer B that will run the software. You can perfectly buy a license using computer A using the Host ID of the computer B, get the license file on the website on computer A then copy it on computer B.

Because of this enormous change, we are currently unable to provide users with upgrades from V9: We hope the new, low prices and licensing fees, as well as removing the dongle, and allowing you to have two computer node for the price of one, will more than make up for that.

Perpetual licenses doesn’t expire, however perpetual license support does.
For example, let says you ordered a perpetual license the January 1 2018, you will be able to run endlessly the last release built before January 1 2019.
1. Buying some subscription months. You will have to accumulate 12 subscription months to get a new perpetual license.
2. Buying a new perpetual license directly.
For example, if you already accumulated 6 months of subscription, and you order 6 months more on January 1 2017, your perpetual license will run releases built BEFORE the July 1 2017.
We may propose them in future if many people ask and if you have enough resources to help you all to setup the system.
Remember that you can set two different Host IDs by license (excluding the floating ones).
