So this is a hypothetical question since I am not yet a customer. Assuming I sign up with your shared hosting plan and after 8 months, I am told that my needs have grown and so I must move to VPS. My questions are:
Does Dreamhost give me a grace period on my shared hosting till I make arrangements to move? Or would my site be suspended until then?
If I do plan to move to Dreamhost’s VPS, would Dreamhost take care of the migration from the shared to the VPS plan, or do I have to take care of setting my server from scratch?
What about payment - if I go for the annual plan, would I be refunded pro-rata (and adjusted with the VPS) or do I lose my money the moment I make the payment?
