  • Fixed some typos

vultr is very nice, unfortunately can not downgrade,only upgrade :disappointed_relieved:


#56

You can only downgrade on Amazon AWS, Google Cloud and Microsoft Azure. These are highly scalable servers, unlike DO and Vultr.

#58

It may take up to few hours. Please keep patience.


#59

You can take backup of your WordPress and restore it to the new server.

I guess this happened because I added a :luxembourg: Luxembourgish Credit Card


#61

Your Vultr account name and the payee name should be same, else it may require manual review like it happened. No worries, they will release your account. :slight_smile:


#62

How you get that card? :thinking::thinking::thinking:


#63

I followed your guide @GulshanKumar and setup a demo blog, now my blog is able to access with both https://www.example.com and https://example.com.

How to redirect www to non-www version?


#64

Don’t you know rich people have cards from all around the world? :thinking::thinking::thinking:


#65

hmm… I am also about to signup and setup the vultr account for testing my test website first and then my main blog!

Hope my Indian Credit card will work! :slight_smile:


#66

Good Luck :heart_eyes::+1:


#67

Same thing happened with me and after that they removed the $25 credit which I got from @GulshanKumar link… :disappointed_relieved::persevere:


#68

:fearful::fearful::fearful:


#69

Thanks! I am only a newbie to WordPress and SEO. You people are expert! Me just learning now days only.


#70

LOL, will I get the credit or not then? :disappointed_relieved:


#71

@Saksham Did you created 2 accounts by mistake? Bcoz i mailed vultr few hours back for any discount. They are also forward me the same link of $25 credit, that gulshan has given.

I am yet to create an account with them. I was hoping to do it tonight!


#72

I paid using PayPal but the name on PayPal and on Vultr was different so I think that was the reason. And I have another account also but that is separate from start.
