Yoast subscriptions: FAQ

In this article, we’ll answer frequently asked questions about our Yoast subscriptions.

If you have any questions regarding our customer portal MyYoast, please check our MyYoast Quickstart guide or our article on Common MyYoast issues.

How can I extend or renew my Yoast subscription?

You can manage all the Yoast SEO products you own in MyYoast, including your subscriptions. Subscriptions can be manually or automatically renewed.

Can I renew my annual Yoast subscription early?

If you have an annual subscription, you can renew before the end date of your subscription. Please know that renewing your subscription before it ends does not cut your current subscription short. Orders that are renewed before the end of the subscription will automatically get the current subscription end date + 1 year. You can find more information on how to renew early here.

Can I cancel my Yoast subscription?

Yes, you can cancel your subscription in your MyYoast account. The subscription will remain active for the remainder of the subscription period.

Where can I find my Yoast license key?

A license key is no longer needed to use our premium plugins because we launched a customer portal where you can find and manage all the Yoast SEO products you own. If you don’t have an account yet or want to know how it all works, this guide will get you started.

If your plugin version is below 5.x, please manually update to the current version. You can then add your website and connect your subscription to it using the MyYoast portal. 

What are different domains in a Yoast subscription?

Our single-site plugin may only be used on one domain. The Yoast subscription verification does not look at the HTTP/HTTPS and www/non-www when checking for activation status. However, subfolders and subdomains are used for the verification check.

MyYoast treats the following standard URL formats as the same single domain:
– http://example.com
– https://example.com
– http://www.example.com
– https://www.example.com

MyYoast treats the following subfolder URL formats as the same single domain:
– http://example.com/subfolder
– https://example.com/subfolder
– http://www.example.com/subfolder
– https://www.example.com/subfolder

MyYoast treats the following subdomain URL formats as the same single domain:
– http://subdomain.example.com
– https://subdomain.example.com
– http://www.subdomain.example.com
– https://www.subdomain.example.com

How can I change my site’s URL in MyYoast?

If you switch from one URL format to another, please remove the old URL format from MyYoast and add the new URL format to avoid disruptions in your activation status.

Can I upgrade my subscription to use it on more sites?

Yes! You can add one extra site to an existing subscription at a time. E.g. you have a 1-site Yoast SEO Premium subscription, but you have two websites so you’d want to upgrade to a 2-site subscription. You can do so by logging into your MyYoast account, going to Account → Subscriptions, and clicking on the green “Manage” button. On that page, you will see a link “Add another site to this subscription”. This will bring you to the Yoast.com checkout page.
