Hi Sharon,

No, we have not, nor do we intend to, discontinue the trial version of

About Atomz Express Search:

Atomz Express Search allows complete customization of look and feel to match your site's design. Only a small "Powered by Atomz" logo is shown above the search results.

This trial version is what one of my client's has been using for quite awhile now.

So, not to worry as long as long as one's site is less than 500 pages and you don't mind not having the advanced search services offered to paying customers.
