    Personally I'd say none of these. They're just indications that you've outgrown your current shared hosting account. You could still upgrade to a higher-level shared / semi-dedicated, with a different provider if necessary.

    Yep. Or you want access to things you can't get at on shared hosting (eg. mail logs). Or you want more isolation from other users. Or you're frustrated by the lack of control. When you move to VPS you're still using shared hardware - it's about control and isolation, not resources.

    If you have any reason to such as;

    1. One site is slower than the other site on the same server, which leads _ to believe they need a VPS

    2. You are noticing your usage is quite high, and the cost of shared hosting is similar to VPS after license costs etc

    3. You want more control, or need more control. Perhaps you want to be able to assign IP's to your own domains/accounts without needing to submit a ticket or call your web host.


    If you don't think you fit in the above, then save your money and go for a SSD shared hosting provider. Personally I like Dathorn, but its a reseller account.


    If you do fit in the above, then the answer should be obvious.


    Hope this helps!

    I would say you've outgrown shared hosting and need to move to a VPS when you feel that your site's performance is suffering as a result of your shared host over committing resources.

    shared servers hosts so many websites. so if your site grow then you have to be prepared for warning from hosting provider because they dont want you to take all the available resources. and when you grow your common sense will guide you that you need more control and more freedom and more cpu,ram. then you need a vps.
