Retail license (perpetual license)
Retail license is a one-time-fee purchase. Once purchased, it can be used for an unlimited period of time.
Plesk Retail licenses are updated once in 1 month. Details are available here.
Currently Retail licenses are not available for purchase, existing licenses remain active.
Lease licenses are paid for on monthly or yearly basis and are valid while they are paid for. Otherwise, lease licenses expire.
Lease licenses are renewed by charging the credit card on file. Monthly lease payment will be due exactly 30 days after your previous payment. Your credit card on file will be charged automatically on licenses renewal date. If the payment is processed successfully, you will receive email confirmation with your product key.
We recommend you to keep track of your billing account (expiration date, available balance, validation) and inform Plesk Licensing and Purchase Support if any changes were performed.
