Install a License Key

Right after the installation, Plesk uses a trial license key. To get a new license key, proceed to the Plesk online store (shop.plesk.com) where you can select and purchase a necessary license key.

Once you purchase the key, you will receive an activation email with your activation code and a license key file. You can install a Plesk license key either by entering the activation code or by uploading the file from this email.

To install a license key using an activation code:

  1. Go to Tools & Settings > License Management > Plesk License Key and click Install Key.
  2. Enter the code you received in the email to the Enter an activation code field and click OK.

To install a license key using a license key file:

  1. Go to Tools & Settings > License Management > Plesk License Key and click Install Key.
  2. Choose Upload a license key file.
  3. Specify the path to the key file you received in the email and click OK.

If you experience any problems, please contact sales@plesk.com.

(Advanced) To install a license key through the command-line interface:

license <--install|-i> <em><path-to-key-file | activation-code></em>

For example,

On Linux using a key file:

./license -i /tmp/pp11.5key.xml

On Linux using an activation code:

./license -i AB1C23-4DEF56-7GHI89-JK1L23-MNP456

On Windows using a key file:

license.exe -i "D:\keys\pp11.5key.xml"

On Windows using an activation code:

license.exe -i AB1C23-4DEF56-7GHI89-JK1L23-MNP456
