How to activate Windows Server without product key

As you know, Windows Server is a specialized operating system that is designed for servers. In today's post, I will show you how to activate Windows on your VPS or dedicated dedicated server using the product key of the KMS client. Although the KMS license is valid only for 180 days, but there is no limit on the amount of activation. So you can renew it whenever you want. Actually, the license will be renewed automatically every 7 days by default (almost similar to the Let & # 39; s Encrypt certificate). In this way, just do it once and forget it completely.
