Hi, I have the basic droplet (512m) and I want to upgrade to 1Gb droplet and get more disk space and memory. I saw that the fast-resize I will not get more disk space. So how should I performance the upgrade from 5c/512Mb/20GB to 10c/1GB/30GB without losing my current IP and getting the plus 10GB of disk?

Ok, thanks for the info!

Upon destroying a droplet, your IP is reserved for about 15 minutes. You should have time to recreate!

Hi Pablo, thanks for your reply. <br> <br>I just voted, but I cannot hang on a “likely” option… If this is the only alternative I will have to think what I will do… <br> <br>I cannot loose my IP, I will have to do many fixes if I change… and a “likely” and “relatively short period of time” are too unsafe for me at this time…
