Upgrade my Linux Hosting plan
Here's how you can upgrade your Linux Hosting plan if you need more processing power or physical memory. Upgrading your plan can make your website faster and more resilient when its traffic spikes.
Note: Although upgrades typically take from 10 to 30 minutes, for large sites allow up to 24 hours. Your sites may experience intermittent downtime until the upgrade is complete.
- Go to your GoDaddy product page.
- Under Web Hosting, next to the Linux Hosting account you want to use, click Manage.
- In the account Dashboard, select Account Actions > Upgrade.
- Select the plan level you want and then click Upgrade.
- Follow the prompts to complete the checkout process.
- If you're upgrading to Web Hosting Plus, your server IP address may change. After the upgrade is done, we'll email you with that new server IP address. If you're using domains in other GoDaddy accounts or with other web providers, you will need to update the A Host records accordingly.
- For info on updating that A Host record, see Edit an A record.
- And just in case you miss the email with the new IP address, follow the steps in What is my website's IP address in my Linux Hosting account?.
