If you have a Perpetual/Purchased Plesk license, it is necessary to have it upgraded to Plesk Onyx. Upgrade is possible in case the license has SUS . If license has SUS, it will be automatically upgraded to Plesk Onyx when you upgrade your Plesk server. License type will be changed to: Plesk Onyx (upgrade from Plesk 10/11) Purchased . After upgrade, the license will not be OS-unified as edition-based licenses.
Licenses without SUS will not be automatically upgraded to Plesk Onyx: you have to purchase SUS and upgrade your license manually (see instructions here: https://support.plesk.com/hc/en-us/articles/213956265), or contact Sales team to request manual upgrade of Plesk license to Plesk Onyx.
Plesk 10/11 and later Lease licenses are compatible with Plesk Onyx, so these licenses do not need to be updated or replaced. When you upgrade your server to Plesk Onyx, your Plesk 10/11 and later Lease license will remain active on Plesk Onyx. However, Plesk 10/11 Lease license is not converted to Plesk Onyx license type. It remains Plesk 10/11 Lease license that is used on Plesk Onyx server.
Plesk 10/11 Lease license installed on Plesk Onyx server does not include all new features of Plesk Onyx. Availability of new Plesk Onyx features and add-ons for owners of Plesk 10/11 licenses depends on the domain limit of the Plesk 10/11 license.
The features available with Plesk 10/11 Lease license will depend on the number of domains on this license, see the table below. Not all new Plesk Onyx features are available for Plesk 10/11 Lease licenses. In order to use all new Plesk Onyx features, one should cancel Plesk 10/11 Lease license and purchase regular license for Plesk Onyx.
