Do I need to do something after the upgrade?
When you upgrade your hosting plan, all your websites, files, emails, and such will be automatically transferred to the new plan, which means you won’t need to move anything manually, as your account will be automatically upgraded shortly! 🚀
If you are upgrading from Shared to Cloud hosting, you will also get dedicated resources, which include a dedicated IP address. Thus, if you are using an IP address anywhere (like while connecting to the account by FTP or pointing domain via A record), you will need to update the IP address. You can find the new IP address in the account's details once the upgrade is completed.
What about the money, left from the previous plan?
We also want to guarantee that you don’t lose any investments when you get a more powerful plan. That’s why when you upgrade with Hostinger, your old hosting plan’s value isn’t lost!
As soon as you upgrade your hosting plan, the remaining time of the current one will be converted accordingly to the price of the new one, adding to it as extra hosting time!
Let’s illustrate: say that your current plan is worth $100 and the plan you want to upgrade to costs $5/month, so that means once you upgrade, you will get the months you pay for + 20 months converted from your current plan.
