I would recommend that you purchae and convert now, then when IPS4 is released as the final version you can upgrade at that time. I would not recommend running beta software on a live production site though.
In testing, so far with ips4, I'm referring to the licensed url and the url the board is setup to run under, ssl for logins would not be effected though. For example if I install under https, then later change to http, the license may not work properly as the full license url is matched currently. Re-installing the software in my case for many many test setups has triggered this, so if it matches perfectly, all is well.
If you have any trouble doing so, you can let us know by submitting a support ticket once 4.0 is released as final. Currently the ulr must match exactly is what I was noting, so if you are having trouble with your license, and you think it may be due to the licensed url being http and you are using https, please file a ticket and we can adjust this for you if needed.
With our new license changes, it must match exactly, so if it's https via http, it would make a difference in my testing with IPS4..specifically for a re-install etc. If this is the case for anyone, please file a ticket and we can adjust the url for you without having to reset the url etc since it's not actually a url change.
We are not hiding your post, it would depend on where you are replying or posting though, as some sections are moderated. If you have an issue, please submit a ticket if needed though, as above, the pre-sales forum is not the place for such support.
