License Extension

License Center will notify you soon before any of your subscription-based licenses expire. The exact dates vary depending on the type of your licenses (ranging from one week to one month before the expiration date). You can extend your QNAP or QNAP-affiliated licenses using the following methods.

Activation Method

Description

Using QNAP ID

Licenses purchased through License Center or Software Store are stored in your QNAP ID account, and can be accessed through both License Center and the QNAP License Manager website.

If you have an existing valid, unused subscription-based license in License Center, you can use this to extend your expiring license. For details, see Extending a License Using QNAP ID.

Offline using an unused license

If you have a valid, unused subscription-based license and your device is not connected to the internet, you can use this method to extend your expiring license. For details, see Extending a License Offline Using an Unused License.

Offline using a product key

The 25-character product key is purchased together with the product from either QNAP or an authorized reseller. The product key is normally printed on the product package.

If you have a valid, unused product key for a subscription-based license, and your device is not connected to the internet, you can use this method to extend your expiring license. For details, see Extending a License Offline Using a Product Key.
