How to Upgrade or Downgrade your Hosting Plan
In this tutorial we will show you how to upgrade or downgrade your Hosting Plan in AMP. If you've outgrown or underutilized your current hosting plan, you can easily sign-in and take advantage of the AMP (Account Management Panel) to upgrade, or downgrade your plan to match your current hosting needs. If you just want to change your plan term (payment cycle), for example from 1 year to 2 years, see our guide here.
Upgrade / Downgrade hosting plan
Using the Change Plan option in AMP, will allow you to do just that! Using the steps below I'll show you how to accomplish either an account upgrade or downgrade.
- Login to AMP.
- Find the hosting plan you want to modify, then click the Change Hosting Plan button.
For the Change to field, select the plan you are thinking about upgrading/downgrading to.
For Select term, you can choose the appropriate billing cycle that works for you.
In this example you can see that I would have a $112.00 CREDIT from my current Change from plan of VPS 1000 when selecting my Change to plan of VPS 2000.
You will see your total cost for the upgrade, or any credit you'd receive from a downgrade.
Finally click on Submit.
Now that you've submitted your upgrade or downgrade request for your hosting plan, our systems administration team will take it from here and send you an email when the process is complete.
The time frame for Upgrading/Downgrading will differ, depending on your request, but you will receive an email upon completion.
If you are moving platforms from a shared account to a VPS or an inexpensive dedicated hosting package our systems administrators take care of the account move.

I did this for my hosting plan, and it went very smoothly. I highly recommend it if you are over paying for your current plan.

The Change Hosting Plan icon is indeed there within AMP, although it could be in a different row depending on your specific plan and browser window size. Look through this section in AMP and you will certainly find it.

Hello Jorge, and thanks for your comment.
You can request additional RAM for your dedicated server in AMP, as also explained in our updated dedicated server specs article.
You would just need to submit a verfied ticket so our system administration department can get in contact with you to plan the upgrade of RAM.
Please let us know if you had any other questions!
