Hi @ibnkhldon,

To change your hosting platform you will need to cancel the existing hosting plan and purchase a new Plesk Windows plan.

Salam Alekom Ahmed ,

 

you can go to ttps://account.godaddy.com/billing.

then check Linux host Plan --> choose "Cancel Products"

then go to back to your home -->my product add new windows plan

 

PS:: Linux hosting plan is the same Price as Windows Plan = 47.88E 

Check with support for any help.

What happens to the emails/email accounts that were setup?  Would those migrate to the new plan?  I would hate to have to export all of those accounts and restart them on the new plan.

 

Thanks.

Dear My friend does this cost me charges if I change from linux to windows same price plane --- I did purchase the plan today

Hi KayJay,

According to your solution, it looks like I need close down existing account and buy a new one in order to switch from Linux hosting to windows. I got Godaddy support page as below:

https://au.godaddy.com/help/switching-your-hosting-account-operating-system-1285

According to above guide, it should be free and easy way to switch it. However, when I reach "Plan" menu I cannot see any options for Windows but only Linux hosting. So could you please clarify my question: without cancel existing account and buy a new account, can I switch the hosting operation system by following the URL above?

Thanks

Hello technical support Godaddy
Please Help .
I am new in web design occurred in the selection of mis Control System and Windows Server System and I want to go back to  linux 

ban

I am in need of TLS 1.2 support in OpenSSL 1.01.  The current GoDaddy Windows hosting environment does not provide this and so I am contemplating switching to the Linux hosting platform (same cost) as I understand that environment provides the proper level of OpenSSL that I need to communicate with PayPal.

 

If I change my hosting plan from Windows to Linux,  does GoDaddy copy my website files from Windows to Linux for me or do I simply get an empty Linux environment and it's up to me to re-set up my website there.

 

Thanks.

I'm having the same issue. It will not copy your files over. I'm just going to redo mine. I have all my files offline. I also found the windows environment very slow. So hopefully Linux will speed it up and give me SSL support for paypal. You can't even RDP on their windows server so it's pointless to have windows.
