What’s Pagely’s process for upgrading plan instances?

We make the upgrade process a simple and trivial change for our customers. Both upgrades and add-ons can be initiated with a single click in your Pagely Atomic dashboard.

Using Amazon EC2 to power our product line, upgrading is simply a matter of resizing your existing web server quick and easy. When moving from a single server instance to another (i.e. VPS-1 -> VPS-2) we can double your horsepower and complete the change in about three minutes.

Switching from a single server plan to a High Availability (HA) setup (i.e. VPS-1 -> VPS-1+ [HA]) adds a bit more complexity as additional DNS changes are required to accommodate the second active server. In this case, we just tack on the second web node to your existing server for you to obstruct any downtime from occurring.

Generally, we like to consult with our customers considering an HA upgrade first to chat about your goals and verify whether this move will help meet those goals before finalizing a change.

Learn when it’s appropriate to upgrade horizontally or vertically and what each means for your website’s stability in this KB article.
