I am currently using a general purpose plan (60/month), and planning to switch to a basic plan maybe (15/month) or (10/month) with the same size of SSD (25GB), only difference on the vCPUs, memory and transfer. All I need to do is to turn off the droplet and resize my droplet and wait for it to succeed and turn it back on, then everything will be done? Do I need to reconfig my droplet like the network…or other issues?

Thanks

Hi @derek986986,

You should not need to do anything else then turn off your droplet, resize it, and then start it back on.

No network or any kind of configuration changes will be needed as well. Basically nothing in regards to the content of the droplet will be changed.

Having said that, I would suggest for you to create a backup prior to resizing your droplet just to be on the safe side.

Hello there,

Keep in mind that when a Droplet is resized to have a larger disk, it cannot be resized to have a smaller disk size later. Please reference this tutorial on our Community site for more details about the resize process:

During the resize process, IP address along with data and networking remains same.

Hope this clears!

Cheers,
