Important Notes

  1. If you are upgrading the memory or cores on a VPS you will need to reboot the server for the new upgrade changes to take place.

  2. If you upgrade the storage on a VPS you will be prompted to "commit" your changes before the resizing will take place – this will then reboot the VPS automatically.

  3. The individual upgrades options that are available depend on the plan that the server is on.

  4. If you want to decrease the storage space of your server you will need to contact us at support@sitehost.co.nz.

  5. If the upgrades you are requesting are not available on this page please contact us at support@sitehost.co.nz.

  6. During the upgrade process for a VPS, you may be requested to migrate your server if there are insufficient resources available on the host server. This will require shutting down the server for a number of minutes while the migration takes place.
