Can I Upgrade At Any Time? How Much Does It Cost?
You can upgrade your account at any time. It is free to upgrade, and the only charge you would be responsible for is the price difference between your current plan and the plan to which you'd like to upgrade.
For example, if you already paid $9.95 this month for your current plan at HostGator, and the new plan is $14.95 per month, you would only pay the $5.00 difference. If you upgrade halfway through the month, we will charge a pro-rated amount, and the normal monthly fee will be charged next month.

Similarly, you can downgrade your account at any time. There is no contract to keep you in your plan. However, you will need to move your data during the downgrade process unless you use KVM VPS and/or the newer Dedicated Server plans.
If you have the option to downgrade in your Customer Portal, you don't have to worry about moving the content.
