We moved to a visitor-based pricing model in November 2017. For those of you still on our legacy bandwidth-based hosting plans, see details below regarding account changes, upgrades, etc.

You can still upgrade and downgrade between the bandwidth-model plans from within the MyKinsta dashboard.

The only exception is in regards to the new starter ($30/month) and pro ($60/month) plans. Since these are brand new and were not previously available, they can only be used with the new visitor-based pricing model. You can switch to these at any time by reaching out to our support team.

Important: If you downgrade from your bandwidth-based pricing to a visitor-based pricing model, you cannot revert back. The new visitor-based plans also include fewer PHP workers per site. If your site makes great use of our caching, that probably isn’t a concern. However, if your site need the extra PHP workers to handle dynamic page loads, the legacy bandwidth-based plans are probably a better choice. This is particularly true for ecommerce, multisite, and community sites.
