How do I change my Lightsail plan?

Last updated: 2020-12-22

I want to change my current Amazon Lightsail plan to a different plan. How do I do that?

Resolution

Your Lightsail plan is based on the Lightsail bundle that you're using.

To upgrade your Lightsail plan to a larger instance, take a snapshot and then create a larger instance from the snapshot.

To migrate to a smaller instance size:

  1. Back up any information stored on your instance to another AWS service.
  2. Launch a smaller Lightsail instance.
  3. Migrate the information from your old instance to your new instance.

Note: If you have a static IP address, be sure to detach it from your old instance. Then, attach it to your new instance.
