Hi everyone.

I have a few website, and am currently on a Hostgator package.

One of my main sites keeps going down, and I believe it's because I'm only allowed 25 processes on my current package.

I'm thinking it may be a good idea to leave Hostgator and move to a VPS or something similar?

All my sites are Wordpress - Will it be hard to move them all accros?

also, can anyone recommend any reliable and affordable hosting services?

Thanks!

Alex

    I just recently switched to managed wordpress hosting and it's a huge improvement. I use Flywheel but WP Engine is popular too. Be prepared to pay more, but if you run a business and your sites are making money it's worth it. As for moving sites over, I get all my sites migrated over for free and they do it for me, have been loving the switch so far.

    I have the baby package at Hostgator and at one time was running 10 sites (now down to 4) and only once had I had a issue but they resolved it. People give HG a bad name but for me it is a piece of cake to work with there c panel.

    How much traffic does your main site get?

    As previously going to a provider that specialises in WP hosting may help. For about the same price as a VPS, you could use WordPress Hosting & Managed WordPress Hosting | WP Engine (non-affiliate link)

    For moving your sites, you can either use the free Duplicator plugin, or your find a lot of providers will help you migrate your sites for free.

    Instead of making a bunch of assumptions, it would be a better idea to ask them what the problem might be. You may find yourself in the same situation with another provider...

    there must be some technical glitches to go down. did you analyze the website. It would be best to fine tune your website before jumping to a VPS. I can see your website free...being a sys admin... if you feel comfortable give me the access I ll see whats wrong there and where is the bottleneck.
