Frequently Asked Questions

Can you give me a hint on what hosting is going to cost?

Please see the regular pricing from this page (https://documentnode.io/pricing), which includes desktop applications and hosting services combined.

We are offering different layers of discounts to our backers only. For Lifetime access backers, the base hosting price will be 20% OFF of the regular price forever.

Take a 'VIP + Beta Access' backer as an example. He will get:

  • A t-shirt
  • Beta access before anyone else
  • Lifetime access to desktop apps with free updates forever
  • Six-month free hosting from Aug 2019 - Feb 2020
  • 60% off for the first two years hosting. It means from Feb 2020 to Feb 2022, if the backer chooses Pro plan, the monthly subscription fee could be: USD 17 * 0.8 * 0.6 = USD 8.16; If the backer chooses Startup plan, the monthly subscription fee could be: USD 57 * 0.8 * 0.6 = 27.36 USD

After the Kickstarter campaign ends, we will not provide Lifetime access to desktop applications and discounts to hosting services any more.

Don't miss out!

Can we use Document Node to create online documentation for SaaS products.

That's precisely what Document Node aimed to do. It will be much easier to keep your online documentation up-to-date by using Document Node.

When will Document Node be ready to test/evaluate?

The Kickstarter campaign will finish on Feb 22.

The beta version of Document Node desktop will be out at the end of April 2019, but we will release alpha versions to some backers in the middle of April.

Version 1.1 will only be released to backers because we would like to 100% concentrate on supporting our early backers. The general public will not have access before Aug 2019.

If you want to see a more detailed roadmap, please see this link: https://documentnode.io/roadmap.

Will there ever be a perpetual license option?

We are offering Lifetime Access to Document Node desktop apps with free updates forever in the Kickstarter campaign only, which will be ended on Feb 22.

Early birds will get further 30% off, and big discounts on hosting services.

The regular pricing model will be based on subscription only with desktop applications and hosting services combined.

After the Kickstarter campaign ends, we will not provide Lifetime access to desktop applications and discounts to hosting services any more.

This looks really cool! Do you have plans to make it for iOS iPad, etc.?

Yes, we will definitely make it for iOS (iPhone, iPad) as well as Android after we release the desktop applications.

The priority will depend on how many backers demand this.

Will you support fountain?

The Fountain markup language is elegant for writing screenplays. We've already put it in our roadmap. At the moment, our prototype application supports Markdown, which is very similar to supporting Fountain.

We will do more research on how to optimise the text editor and instant publishing for screenplays.

It requires some effort, so the priority will depend on how many backers demand this.
