If you are a user on a paid subscription and are considering downgrading, you may lose access to some tools and features. In addition to losing access to any paid tools and features, keep in mind that content you created and data you have stored will also be impacted.
In general, we recommend that you review what data you can export from HubSpot before downgrading or leaving HubSpot.
Downgrade a Marketing Hub account
To downgrade, you should reach out to your Customer Success Manager. If you do not have your Customer Success Manager's contact information, learn how to reach out to HubSpot Support for the information.
From Enterprise to Professional
When you downgrade a Marketing Hub subscription from Enterprise to Professional, you will lose features that are Enterprise only. This will impact some of your content and limits:
Content on secondary domains
Secondary domains are not available for Marketing Hub Professional. Once your account is downgraded to Professional, secondary domains will be disconnected in 30 days. If you've content hosted on your secondary domains, you should consider moving the content to a primary domain.
For website or landing pages:
- Navigate to your website or landing pages.
- In the upper left, click the Domains dropdown menu to select the secondary domain you want to move content off of.
- Update the domain of each page to a primary domain.
Please note: for multi-language content, only the page in the master language will appear when searching by domain in the dropdown menu. If you believe you have language variations of a master page hosted on a secondary domain, you'll need to manually check the master page.
For blog content:
- In your HubSpot account, click the settings icon settings in the main navigation bar.
- In the left sidebar menu, navigate to Website > Blog.
- Update your blog root URL setting.
After moving your content, it's recommended to disconnect your secondary domains and reconnect them as redirect domains. This will ensure that visitors are redirected to your content and that any file manager assets using this domain will continue to be served.
The usage of multiple brand domains is only available for Marketing Hub Enterprise, and not any other subscriptions (i.e., Marketing Hub Professional and below). Once your account is downgraded to Professional, only one brand domains will stay connected. All other brand domains will be disconnected in 30 days. You'll receive a notification that informs you of the brand domains that will be removed.
If a brand domain is used as a primary domain, you should consider changing your primary domains from the brand domain to the domain you'll be keeping after your downgrade.
If a brand domain is used as a secondary domain, you should consider moving the content to a primary domain, as per the instructions above.
No contacts will automatically be deleted or removed. However, your contact limit may change. Check the HubSpot Product & Services catalog for your new limit and once you've your new subscription level, you can check your limit in your account settings. You may want to export certain contacts and then delete them to stay below that limit.
From Professional to Starter or CRM
When downgrading to Starter or CRM, you will lose any features relating to Enterprise and Professional accounts. If you're downgrading from Professional, the following content and data will be affected:
- Activities relating to Enterprise and Professional features
- Classic page editor
- Website pages and blog
- Social data
- CTA data
- URL redirects
If you downgrade from Enterprise, the previous section on the downgrade from Enterprise to Professional will also apply.
Activities relating to Enterprise and Professional features
Any activities relating to Marketing Hub Professional or Enterprise features will be removed, along with the filters in a contact record in the dropdown menu. These include:
- Call-to-action data
- Marketing email data
- Twitter events
- List memberships
- Salesforce syncs
The following activities and filters will remain in your Marketing Hub Starter:
Classic page editor
All pages that were created using the classic page editor will remain live for 90 days after the downgrade. These pages will still be available in your landing pages, but only on a read-only basis. You may want to consider exporting your page content from HubSpot before the pages are unpublished and archived.
Website pages and blog
Your blog posts and website pages will be deleted. You may consider exporting your page content from HubSpot before your downgrade to ensure none of your content is lost.
Data relating to your social posts that you published through HubSpot will be lost. You may consider exporting your social post data before downgrading.
CTAs are an Enterprise and Professional feature. All CTAs created in HubSpot will not continue to work once your Marketing Hub subscription is downgraded to Starter or below. You may consider removing any CTAs from all external pages you own and export your CTA data, before downgrading.
Downgrade a Sales Hub account
If you are downgrading your Sales Hub account, please review the HubSpot Product & Services Catalog for your new subscription's limits. While you may still have many of the same features, your access to content and data may be restricted.
For example, if you downgrade from Sales Hub Professional to CRM Free, you will still have access to templates and documents, but you will only have access to the first five templates or documents that were created in the account.
Removing a user's seat does not delete the seat. Your HubSpot account will still have the unused Professional or Enterprise seat for assignment and you will still continue to pay for it until your next contract renewal date, even if it remains unassigned.
Please note: if you downgrade from Sales Hub Professional and have contacts who are currently enrolled in sequences, the contacts will be unenrolled.
