Can you permanently increase disk size after temporarily increasing cpu and ram while staying on the same Plan?

Posted April 29, 2020 563 views

If I rezize CPU and ram of my droplet this change is temporarily. But if I later also need more storage can I increase the disk while staying on the same plan? So for example I have a Droplet on the standard 1 vCPU 1 GB Ram 25 GB Disk plan. If I upgrade to the 1 vCPU 2 GB Ram 25 GB Plan can I later also permanently increase the disk to 50gb?

Hi there @BetaHuhn,

You can upgrade your Droplet at any time via your DigitalOcean control panel.
