    I have around 4 sites running on the 6 core plan of host gator cloud. It was doing well, but I update 2 of my wp site’s regularly and one of them have 3k pages and the other has around 1.5k pages. The speed has been super slow lately and I’m pretty sure it’s because of how much pages I have on the site. Not sure if I should move to a better host... if yes suggest me some or hire someone to optimize my site.

    Wordpress runs a lot of scripts on each page load. It is less about the total number of pages and more about the number of page loads. More so, it is about the number of concurrent page loads.

    Each time a page loads and scripts run, Wordpress chomps through your server memory with reckless abandon. The more concurrent users you have on your site, the more RAM your site consumes. When a Wordpress site is running slow, the answer is almost always that the server does not have enough memory.

    If you have access to the Linux shell, try running the "top" command during peak hours for your sites and you should be able to quickly determine if RAM is, indeed, the culprit (which I suspect is the case.) After confirming, check with your host about upgrading the RAM.

    If you have a website with lots of large graphic files, those files will slow down the site. If you do have lots of graphic files make sure they have a low resolution unless the files need to be of high resolution ie for artworks etc.

    I think that is always better to work on the issue together with your web hosting provider or move to a bigger plan like VPS. As rule that helps. I had similar issue some time ago with kvchosting and they helped me with that.

    Yes, I agree with you. Moving to the bigger plan is the right choice because you update your sites regularly.

    VPS is a good option for database-driven resource-intensive WordPress websites

    Go for SSD Cloud VPS server with nginx webserver and some more optimization with php modules and caching can help you get the best result you are looking for.
    I would suggest a managed VPS hosting solution.

    For me Uptime and Speed, Support and Price are very important factors when choosing a right web host. Would also prefer a cpanel host.
    I am quite happy with hostwinds ssd host. Their plans are quite cheap when you figure what you're getting for them.

    Taking into account your needs, I can recommend you to compare these hosts: Dreamhost.com, Rareservers.com, Viux.com
    Their goal is to provide quality infrastructure hosting in world-class data facilities, at a cost accessible to enterprises, small businesses, and end-users alike.

    Frankly, I just don't think hostgator gives you the best deal. There's a reason why they're this popular and someone has to pay for all that marketing. Guess who it is? You :)

    HG is good enough for someone who is just starting but you've outgrown not just your hosting plan but also your hosting company is seems. Lots of good hosts fly under the radar and they can give you much better value for your money. Try to move beyond hostgator, wiredtree, mediatemple and other household names.

    If you decide to optimize your website, who will you choose - a freelancer developer or a professional web development company? This choice really depends on the budget you are ready to spend. Does your hosting plan include SSD storage and CDN? You may try first optimizing your website and then, if it is still slow, upgrade to a better hosting service, for example, a KVM VPS.

    HostGator's "cloud" plans are ultimately just shared hosting on high-powered servers. It sounds as if you might be ready to explore VPS or semi-dedicated hosting options, which are not as expensive as they may sound. Most good solutions can be had for anywhere from about $15 - $50 per month, and there is a veritable range of options from many providers in this area.

    I hope this info helps. I realize you may have found a solution that works for you by now. Best of luck!

    1. Enable gzip in .htaccess file to Compress Your Files to Improve Blog Loading Speed:
    2. 2.Disable Hotlinking of Images
    3. 3. Clean Up Your Database:

    Check out plans form limeisp and yourlasthost. They are cheap and worthwhile.
    Guess they can be suitable for all your needs.
    Just my two cents.
