    I bought Mobile ATM, a neat plugin for prospecting for mobile conversions / site building.
    I activated it on one domain, but I realized it would be better on another. The plug-in
    is designed to run on only one domain.

    I tried everything...deleted site 1, built site 1, cloned one to the other, had a plug-in called Move to
    change the name of a site. It worked but the installed plugin from site one then didn't work on site 2 or even
    the renamed with the same files.

    I have a ticket into support to send me a new key, but they take days to follow up.

    It's not a big deal. I could just leave it on site 1, but I'm curious as to how the plug-in knows that there
    has been a change to a new domain name. I get a message within WordPress that it won't work on this location. Same
    Hostgator hosting. Tried backing up and restoring. More of a mystery that I'd love to solve and have
    it work. It doesn't seem that it commicates with "home base". Any ideas?
