Okay, GoDaddy pissed me off today and I've had enough. I'm looking to move four cheaply hosted sites on to one cloud or virtual dedicated server. I'm looking to spend somewhere around $50/month, which seems fair to me.
My sites, when combined, generate about 400,000 pageviews a month. That will hopefully spike to somewhere around 500,000 by the end of the year, given that I've just launched one site that will begin to grow.
Naturally, all of these sites are database-driven and GoDaddy wouldn't offer me any help in migrating these MySQL databases, telling me to use PHPMyAdmin. Ugh. One Db is 150MB while the other is 200MB. What a pain in the ass. Any host that would help me upload these databases would be my friend forever.
One of my GoDaddy sites is stupid-slow, which is spurring this migration. I'm willing to forfeit my current $20/month hosting fees and up it to $50/month but I need some assurance of an actual speed boost from the host.
Can anyone recommend a good cloud/virtual dedicated host that will come in at that price and work with me on the migration elements of moving four sites simultaneously?
