Accepted Answer

You can only downgrade to a lower plan if you did not upgrade the disk.

So if you have a $5 plan, you can upgrade to anything above that, just don’t expand disk, and you can downgrade again. The upgrade takes about a minute and will require restart of your server.

You can not downgrade a (example) $20 plan with 40GB disk to a plan with lower disk space, i.e. $10 or $5 plans.
