Whenever you upgrade or downgrade your Plesk domain license for your DV server or DV, you will need to Retrieve Keys to apply the license. The DV 4.0 and DV both come with a 100-domain Plesk license. Please contact our Sales department if you would like to upgrade to the unlimited domain license.

Plesk periodically needs to contact the licensing server to update its licensing information. If for some reason it fails to do so, you might see an error similar to this:

Warning: You are currently operating within the grace period of your product license. To update your product license, select the Retrieve Keys option on the License Management page.


  1. Login to Plesk.
  2. In the left-menu, select Tools & Settings.
  3. Under the Panel heading, select License Management.
  4. Select Retrive Keys.
  5. That's it! If you run into any trouble or receive additional error messages, feel free contact Customer Support.
