How to change my subscription billing cycle?

Please submit a ticket in the client area describing the changes you would like to make.

On the invoice due date you will receive a notification email about missed payment.
Then you will have 24 hoyrs to arrange for a payment, otherwise your server will be switched off and terminated permanently in 48 hours.

If your VPS is switched off due to missed payment, in client area the status will be "Suspended". This means that you can still reactivate (switch on) your VPS by paying the outstanding bill - your VPS will be automatically switched on within 5 minutes from the moment payment is received.

How to upgrade my VPS to a higher tariff?

In the client area please go to Services -> My Services -> Click on the Active service -> Upgrade.

A list of available upgrade options will be displayed on the page. Choose the desired tariff you wish to upgrade to.

The system will create an invoice, taking into account remaining paid days for the current tariff and the price of the new tariff.

After payment of this invoice, you need to create a support ticket in the client area in order to agree with the Help Desk on date and time to power-off your server, which is required for the upgrade to the new tariff.

The server will only be off for 10 minutes.

If you have ECO X tariff, which is running Windows 2003, the upgrade to a higher tariff will mean the complete deletion of the ECO X server, including all the information within, and the installation of a new VPS running Windows 2008. Hence, you are kindly requested to copy all the necessary data to your computer.

If you have any other tariff, the upgrade to a new tariff is carried out without loss of data and settings on the server - your server will be simply given additional system resources.
