View Full Version : The usage of CMS with clients

07-17-2011, 02:52 PM
Hi guys. This is my first post. :) I'll be sure to stick around, though.

I've got a question regarding the running of a small web development business. I'm not a newb to creating websites, however I am when it comes to the business part of it, which is why I plan on learning first (obviously) that aspect before I go forth with the idea.

Is it common, or frowned upon, to charge clients to setup CMS systems for them, register domains for them etc? I was considering using part of a package of my web services to setting up a CMS I am familiar with for a client. This would include skinning, graphics etc. Is this legal? If using a CMS for a client, do I need to also pay a fee to the company that created that CMS? Even if it's an OS CMS?

Thanks for replies in advance.

Yeah it's legal, generally. You should read Drupal's user agreement to make sure though.

Thanks for the reply buddy. I'll go through the agreement etc and figure it out from there. :thumbsup:
