About Plesk free trials & license keys:

If you get an error: “this license key does not support exporting in previous version”; it means that either the license key you are using is expired, or you’re trying to apply a second license on top of a previously expired free trial of Plesk Onyx.

According to Plesk EULA (End User License Agreement) trial activation key is to be used only for “internal non-commercial purposes” for the purpose of evaluating the software for a limited time. And by using such a license you will need to remove the software from your system if a commercial license key is not purchased before the expiry date; which is usually a couple of weeks at most.

This is however your best chance to obtain a free version of Plesk Onyx and during the trial period all features are fully enabled as is in the full version.

Many people have asked for free trials to version 12. However only the latest versions (at the time of writing version 17) are supported.
