[INFO] How to downgrade a Plesk license key?

Applicable to:

  • Plesk 11.x for Windows


Provider configured Parallels Key Administrator plug-in in Parallels Business Automation - Standard (PBA-S) to sell Plesk license keys to customers.A customer needs to downgrade a Plesk license key, e.g. he purchased a Plesk license key with 100 domains and he needs to downgrade the license key to 10 domains.


This is by design that license capacity downgrade is disabled in customer's Parallels Key Administrator account (KA API login). Please contact your Sales Representative for more detail.


To change a license to a lower capacity, an existing license should be terminated and then a license of a lower capacity should be ordered.
