Upgrade the plan for a prepaid instance
You can upgrade your plan for a prepaid instance by resizing the instance to a higher prepaid plan.
Charges for upgrading to a higher plan for a prepaid instance
The charge is prorated depending on the creation dates of your instance.
For example, let's assume you have created an instance at $30/year and after 6 months of usage, you decided to upgrade it to a higher plan of $60/year. In that case, the usage charge for the instance will be $15 ($30/2) and the remaining $15 will be utilized for the upgrade. The upgrade will accrue $30 ($60/2) for the remaining 6 months of your billing cycle and you will be billed $15 post deduction of the pending amount.
Fair use policy of IDrive® Compute
As per the fair use policy, to verify sufficient funds are available for monthly postpaid instances, we may run a prorated charge on your primary payment method registered with the account. The charges will be less than or equal to your outstanding balance and will be deducted from the final bill at the end of the month.
We consider the use of our IDrive® Compute Service as Fair when a regular usage pattern is followed throughout an entire billing period. If our Service is not fairly used, action may be taken to reduce negative impact on our Service, including but not limited to rate-limiting the data you may send and/or receive and suspending or terminating the Service.
