Upgrading or Downgrading Your Weebly Plan

 

You can upgrade or downgrade your Weebly account at any time directly through the Weebly interface in Portal. By default, you have Weebly Basic, and you can optionally upgrade to Pro or Business plans.

To access Weebly, you will need to be using HostGator's New Portal Experience.
Note: Weebly is activated for an individual domain or subdomain per installation. You may have multiple instances of Weebly active on different domains and/or subdomains. Installing, upgrading, downgrading or canceling Weebly on one domain or subdomain in your account does not affect Weebly installations on other domains or subdomains.

Add Weebly to a Domain or Subdomain

Before you can upgrade or downgrade, you will need to activate Weebly on your domain or subdomain.

Upgrade Weebly

If you have already activated Weebly on your account, you can modify Weebly in the Hosting section in Portal.

    • If you cannot remember your password, click on the Forgot Password link below the login area, then follow the instructions emailed to the primary email address on file.

Canceling Weebly

Downgrading Weebly using the directions above will stop any further billing so that you will no longer be invoiced for it. You will still have Weebly Basic available for that domain or subdomain.

To completely stop using Weebly for a domain, delete the existing Weebly site and upload a new website to the correct folder on the server (such as the public_html for the primary domain name).  Be sure to backup any files you may need, such as images, before deleting them.
