How to upgrade to paid account on PythonAnyWhere

When I started developing Django applications, one constant concern I had was 'which is best server for hosting Django applications?'.  I read multiple articles about hosting the Django app, hosting service providers and server providing Django support. Most of them provides support for python but very few provide support for django. I even purchased hosting space on two servers but thanks to money back guarantee scheme, my money was returned as I was not satisfied with their service. Finally I settled for PythonAnyWhere. I liked PythonAnyWhere for its simplicity. Hosting Django app on PythonAnyWhere for Free.  Although user interface of PAW is extremely simple to use, I thought of helping newbies like me in upgrading free account to paid account. Here is the list of features available in free and paid plans. $5/month Hacker plan is the best suited for developers who are looking to host their first app over the internet. pythonanywhere plans.png
