Solved NetCup VPS upgrade: unallocated disk space, how to solve this?

I 'WAS' very excited about NetCup, their portfolio, pricing and performance ... but today I got extremely disappointed and because they won't help me I hope someone here knows the magic command?
Today I upgraded my VPS from 320GB to 600GB (beside other specs). I was used at DigitalOcean that after upgrading EVERYTHING is like you ordered in the upgrade. Not with NetCup, the disk is still 320GB and the rest is unallocated. Their Helpdesk refuses to help or give any direction how to solve this: "it's your problem"!
Ofcourse I searched their forum and wiki and the entire internet (for things like ubuntu 18.04 unallocated disk space etc.) but I can't find a proper solution to change "/dev/sda3" into one 600GB partition without losing data.
Has anyone here experience with this?
Thanks in advance,

@imc67 Sometimes the answer comes from another provider's help pages, try this:
Although, would be super-helpful if this was a Cloudron feature @girish
@imc67 resize2fs is command you want . You can also see the DO guide - https://www.digitalocean.com/docs/volumes/how-to/increase-size/
The AWS guide seems more thorough - https://docs.aws.amazon.com/AWSEC2/latest/UserGuide/recognize-expanded-volume-linux.html

@girish & @marcusquinn thanks for the hints!
Finally the AWS guide did the trick, it was a 2 step approach (in my case):
sudo growpart /dev/sda 3
sudo resize2fs /dev/sda3
