i currently have a shared hosting cpanel package. as standard as it gets with hostgator. I actually only need a few sites moved, since I don't mind paying hostgator to host my other sites for the time being.
I've been using Hostgator for quite some time now because they're cheap. Obviously, it's an easy way to get started, but now i'm looking for a more reliable host.
I run a couple of wordpress sites and vbulletin forums with very little traffic. The forums have 0 members, so they're just empty until I intend to move them to a dedi and put them to use.
However, my wordpress sites function as blogs and the server seems to go down several times per month.
I'm not sure if this is reasonable, but I'm looking for a host that won't go down several times per month. I'm willing to pay $20-30 (cpanel included) for shared or VPS plans.
Any recommendations that offer free migration as well?
Thanks in advanced
Well, the answer to your question is affirmative. Well your requirements are fair enough for the given budget. Well you can opt for a vps and I am sure there are many hosts to offer you free migration as well.

I think a VPS w/cPanel that's managed is a stretch for 30 bucks. I think you'd be better off finding yourself a reseller account and splitting each site into their own accounts as well. It would help with both performance & security.
You mentioned "east coast" a few posts back - do you have a preference on where on the east coast?
