Software Update Service (SUS) is the software maintenance program allowing customers to perform a major version upgrade to a newer version free of charge and get technical assistance for the supported Plesk versions for perpetual licenses' owners.
- SUS for Lease licenses (that are paid for on a monthly or yearly basis) does not have an expiration date; it is valid as long as the license is valid.

If SUS expired, you can order SUS Reinstatement, which costs 65% of the license key price.
