Upgrade Hosting Plan

If you decide to upgrade your account to a different A Better Server hosting plan, a new setup fee will be required. Your renewal date will always stay the same.

Changing Servers

Upgrading your account will most likely will require moving your account to a different server. In this case, please confirm that you and your client have read the following notes carefully for upgrade of your account. It will takes five to six business days to become effective.

1) Moving your account to a new server will require that your domain name point to a new IP address. As a result, hosting company's DNS records will need to be updated to reflect the new IP number, which will result in a propagation delay as this new information propagates across the Internet. To ensure a seamless transition of your site to the new server, you will need maintain two copies of your site (one on the old server and one on the new server) for a period of approximately 5 to 6 days, or until the new DNS information is fully propagated across the Internet.

2) If you are using "hit" counters on your web pages, the counters will be reset to zero. Third party counters may be unaffected, be sure you change the links.

3) If you are using the secure processing feature (SSL) and you do not have your own Verisign certificate, you will have to change the server number when referencing the secure server in your HTML as described in SSL instructions.

4) If you have installed any custom scripts that reference the server upon which your account currently resides your links will need to be updated, please read hosting company's support document for more information about marketing scripts server independent.

Send above information via e-mail to hosting company so your account will be upgraded withing short period of times.
