Great OS. The flexibility and ease of expansion made Unraid the choice for me.  I have converted 3 people at my work so far this year. Couldn't ask for a more supportive community!

@Gragorg

I've always wanted to have my own media library for my home theater and a gaming PC that both a friend and I could use at the same time. I now run a modest Plex server and multiple other Dockers and recently just built a "2 Gamers, 1 CPU" style rig for gaming. Unraid has made it possible for me to achieve both of these goals. Thank you!!

Happy Unraid user of about 3 years or so, and I'm on my second build now (with build #3 in the next 12 months). Unraid allowed me to consolidate a bunch of separate machines with separate storage into a single more easily managed system. It also lowered the barrier to entry to technologies like virtualisation, docker and just linux in general.

@tjb_altf4

My colleague recommended Unraid to me. I have never looked back with anything other than pure joy. With VM, docker support and a loving community, what more can I ask for?

FAQs: Trials, Purchasing, and Getting Started

You have two options: 

  1. If you've already started a trial, you can purchase licenses and upgrades from the top right drop-down within Unraid.
  2. You can purchase an Unraid license "activation code" from the Buy Now buttons above and activate your license later.

The pricing listed is per server. All sales are final. Please utilize our free 30-day trial before purchasing!

Unraid OS is not a subscription. Once you purchase a license, you own it forever.

Starter and Unleashed licenses include one free year of software updates with purchase. After one year, customers can pay an optional extension fee (just $36 for the year), making them eligible for another year of updates.

Lifetime licenses include free updates for life.

If you choose not to extend your license, no problem. You still own the license and have full access to the OS—you simply will not be eligible for future updates unless or until you pay the extension fee. There will be no penalty for extending your license at a later date, other than it being subject to the current published extension price. 

Trial licenses last 30 days and provide the full functionality of an Unraid Unleashed license with unlimited attached storage devices.

Follow our Getting Started Guide to be up and running in minutes. 

Attached storage devices refer to the total number of storage devices you are allowed to have connected to the server before starting the array, not counting the USB Flash boot device.

There are no other limitations in the software based on the license type. Non-storage devices such as GPUs do not count against the license tier limits.

Unraid OS boots from a USB flash-based storage device.

Other boot devices, such as SD card readers, HDDs, or SSDs, are not currently supported.

You can manually transfer your license to a new USB Flash device at any time up to once per year. After that, contact support.

No. After an Unraid license is purchased, no internet connection is required unless you are updating the OS or downloading apps, containers or plugins.

Please select ‘Partnerships’ for special orders using the contact form here and we'll be in touch.

No. All of our license costs reflect the use of one license per server. If you would like to use Unraid on multiple servers, please purchase an additional license.

FAQs: Upgrading and Extending Your License

Starter to Unleashed: $69

Starter to Lifetime: $209

Unleashed to Lifetime: $149

Follow these instructions to upgrade through the OS

Prices are subject to change at any time.

The annual extension fee is just $36/year for Starter and Unleashed licenses. 

Prices subject to change at any time.

When you purchase a Starter or Unleashed License, you automatically get a free year of Unraid OS updates. 

If you choose to not extend your license, you still own a copy of the software at the current version that was available at the time of the lapse, but your update eligibility changes. 

If your license extension has lapsed, you can download patch releases within the same minor OS version that was available to you at the time of the lapse. 

For example: Your system is eligible for Unraid 7.1.0 when your extension lapses. You qualify for the remaining patch releases of the Unraid 7.1.x series. Once Unraid 7.2.0 is released, the 7.1.x patch releases will only include security patches. Once Unraid 7.3 is released, version 7.1.0 will be EOL, and there will be no more 7.1.x updates.

Our naming convention for releases is: <major>.<minor>.<patch>. 

No problem—just pay the extension fee and jump back in (subject to the current extension pricing).

FAQs: Legacy License (Basic, Plus, Pro License Holders)

Basic to Plus: $59 (6 to 12 devices)
Basic to Pro: $99 (6 to unlimited devices)
Basic to Unleashed: $49 (6 to unlimited devices)
    
Plus to Pro: $69 (12 to unlimited devices)
Plus to Unleashed: $19 (12 to unlimited devices)

Yes! 

Basic to Unleashed is $49 (6 devices to unlimited). 

Plus to Unleashed is $19 (12 devices to unlimited). 

If you upgrade from a legacy license to a new license, the legacy license will be swapped for your new license and the annual extension timeline is set when the upgrade takes place.
