Adding Slices to Existing VPS


New Member

Having gone through a terrible time fighting with Virpus, I gave up because their server wouldn't boot at all for 12+ hours.

Then I came to know about You have a lot of positive reviews around the internet. Everyone seems to be happy with I tried your service and I have become your fan too.

My server is very slow. Slow because I am running on 1 slice. The bottleneck seems to be the processor. So, I would want to upgrade ASAP.

But before doing that, I have a couple of questions:

1. Can I add 3 more slices to an existing VPS of 1 slice without any downtime?
2. Does adding a new slice means getting an additional virtual processor?

Thank you in advance.

First contact support to check your current vps. Some simple optimizations may be possible to increase the speed.

KVM VPS: these can upgrade with a single reboot, but can not currently downgrade. So yes there is downtime on an upgrdae.

Openvz vps: can both upgrade or downgrade with out a reboot.
