Plesk sent me a scary-looking email today, warning that my sites would be taken offline in 10 days!

Quote:
Subject: <server.kp.tld> Domain event notification: The period of validity is about to expire.
Message:

Almost exactly one year ago, I migrated these four domains to a new server at EuroVPS. It seems that the migration process did not migrate the longevity settings of the domain, instead using the Plesk default of one year. Since these are all my domains (and not domains of clients), the expiration should be set to "never".

This is really easy to fix in Plesk.

NOTE: These images/instructions were performed in Plesk 9.x, and should work the same on both Windows and Plesk.
Note: You must be logged in to view images. Either login or register now (it's free!). Your email is not sold, we don't spam.


Step 1 - Login to Plesk.

Step 2 - Go to the Domains page. You can get to the domains page either by using the navbar menu on the left side of the Plesk interface (if present), or by clicking on the domains text/icon on the main Plesk homepage.

You must be logged in to view this content; either login or register for the forum. The attached screen shots, before/after images, photos and graphics are created/posted for the benefit of site members. And you are invited to join our digital media community.


Step 3 - Select your domain.

Step 4 - Visit the Resource Usage page. The Resource Usage text/icon is about halfway down the page on most Plesk templates, underneath Mail (email account setup) and Files (file manager, password protection, etc).

Step 5 - Set to new date, or to 'Never Expires'. Tick the Never Expires box, and the entire date option will become grayed out. Optionally, you can simply select a new date. (Since these are my sites, again, I set to never expire. The only way these sites should go down is if I decide to take them online on my own. Not likely.)

... And that's it.
