I've been using Bluehost to host all of my websites. They've been great, but lately some of my sites...especially my Wordpress sites, which are autoblogs...are loading and running EXTREMELY slowly.
I've tried all the usual Wordpress fixes...disabling plugins, etc...but they're still ridiculously slow.
I'm guessing that the bigger marketers use private servers and don't use services like Bluehost, Hostgator, etc. I'm wondering, at what point is it really time to upgrade your server situation? Is it a matter of hitting a certain level of traffic? Are there other reasons/benefits to doing so? When do you know it's time to go ahead and start spending the extra money on this?
(We're talking a few bucks a month with Bluehost vs. spending a few hundred dollars a month, with the private/semi-private servers I looked at...so it's not a small difference...)
