Yes, the hosting plan can be upgraded or downgraded whenever you wish. However, you must allow at least 30 days between any hosting plan change. Our Sales Team will calculate the remaining balance on the current hosting plan. If the hosting plan is being upgraded, the remaining credit will be used towards the cost of the upgrade, which is a minimum of 1 year of the cost of the new hosting plan. When downgrading your hosting plan, the remaining credit will be used to calculate a new expiry date at the lower rate
There are many reasons why you may be unable to connect to your website via FTP.
Locked FTP Access
All FTP accounts are locked by default for security reasons to counter viruses that steal passwords stored in FTP clients.
To unlock your FTP account:
Log into your Hosting Control Panel
Go to the Unlock FTP bar on the right hand side panel
Select the amount of time you would like to have FTP unlocked
We recommend you unlock FTP for a brief period in order to upload your files.
We recommend as good practice to take backups, but utilise a Cloud function or a remote storage facility, with your chosen backup option to copy backups over to Dropbox or even FTP to your own machine.
This would give you the advantage of having the backups but storing them in an offsite location making the backups safer.
Here are some suggestions of commonly used backup plugins:
- Updraft Plus
- Backup Buddy
All of the above offer remote and cloud storage locations in which you can store your backups.
If you are no using a backup plugin or similar, the hosting control panel has a backup/restore function which we recommend is used on a regular basis to make sure you have a full backup of your website content
IF your website uses a database, then in the maria databases section there is a backup button next to each database.
