[SOLVED] Possible to add more slots to a game server at any given time?

Post by Asmodeuz » Sat Aug 19, 2017 1:15 pm

Hello,


is it possible to add more slots to a gameserver (in this case Arma 3) without first having to terminate the order that has less slots and then ordering a new one with more slots?


Greetings

Yes there is. In your control panel, look near the bottom for an upgrade/downgrade subscription. Follow through there. It'll keep your same IP but require a restart.

Thank you for the quick reply BillM!

Just to double check here: and then the billing will change according to the subscription one has downgraded/upgraded to?
Also, the game files (modifications and what not) will remain untouched even when changing the slots amount (so that there won't be a need to upload stuff all over again)?

That's been my experience yes. The increase will take effect immediately - If you upgrade you will be charged a prorated amount. If you downgrade, it will take affect at the END of your CURRENT BILLING CYCLE. I never lost any files or whatnot. All I believe it does is simply update the VM software that determines your CPU / RAM / HDD Usage before automated restarts.

I think that with your answers I now have the "groundwork" ready while I'm here starting to lean more and more towards the decision to get me a Gameservers server, start small and see from there if a server with larger capacity is ever going to be needed!

Thank you once more BillM!
