Upgrade CPU and Memory on CloudSites

Overview

This article explains how to add CPU and memory upgrades to a CloudSites account.



Reasons To Upgrade

Adding resources such as more CPU and Memory can make your server able to handle more traffic to your website. If you are expecting a large increase of traffic or your website is slow, it may be time to upgrade.

  2. At the top of your screen, click on the addons tab
