  1. Login to your Hostwinds client area
  2. Under Services, click My Services

  1. Select the item you want to upgrade/downgrade
  2. Verify the upgrade/downgrade if needed
  3. An invoice will be generated. Please pay the invoice to finish the process and we’ll take if from there


Note: Some upgrade/downgrades are automatic and some require our technicians to perform the change. You’ll receive email when the task is performed, Dedicated servers, and changes across product types ( shared hosting to business ) require a technician.

Note: If you have an invoice already created for the next billing cycle, you’d need to pay this invoice first. Then you’d go through the upgrade processes as you see above, and the upgrade will be prorated on the number of days left in the billing cycle.
