HSPHERE: Changing Your Hosting Plan

Your hosting plan determines the services you get with the account and the prices for these services. Big sites with high hit rates and special services require more expensive plans; cheaper plans are suitable for simpler sites.

To change to a different plan:

   1. Select Quick Access in the Account menu.
   2. Click the Change icon next to your plan name.
   3. Select your new plan and click Submit

Warning: Switching plans will disable the resources that are unavailable under the plan you are switching to.
This is what happens when you switch to a new plan:

 - your current billing period is closed;
 - your unused recurrent fee is credited to your account;
 - you are charged any payable amount, including your usage (overlimit) fees;
 - a new billing period under the new plan starts;
 - you are charged the recurrent fee for this billing period.

If you don't see the plan of your choice in the list that appears, it means it is incompatible with your current plan. You can't change to an incompatible plan, but you can create a new account under this plan and then, if you want, you can delete your old account.

<i>Plan Upgrade:</i> If you are switching to a 'higher' plan, your disk quota doesn't increase, but free units do. As a result, your disk quota may turn out to be lower than free units, so you can increase your disk quota without being charged. The same is true of other resources.

<i>Plan Downgrade:</i> If you are switching to a 'lower' plan, the system reduces your quotas for free units. If you are using more than free units, the system reduces the quota to the amount you are using.
