    My site has grown enormously,

    and I keep reading how hostgator will suspend and such for using too much of their resources. As soon as I get paid in may, I am going to switch to dedicated server to solve this issue, but in the mean time is there a way to back up everything in case they suspend?

    Im also not too sure how to transfer to dedicated if anyone can help with that it would be greatly appreciated :-0

    Welcome to Black Hat World........................
    Home Page:
    you should move to virtual dedicated first...
    to move from shared to virtual dedicated...
    its a pain in the azz..

    you have to back up everything and move it almost manually....
    unless you have a utility.. of some sort..

    if you use joomla... there is a component that makes it super easy..

    once on the virtual dedicated... to go to full dedicated..
    its a matter of calling them on the phone... and they take
    care of it..

    when you move it... if you need help.... pm me...

    Submit a support ticket to Hostgator and ask how much resources your using and how close you are to their limit. This will give you and idea of what you need to look for in a VPS/Dedi as well as how quickly you need to switch

    Never have done business with LiquidWeb, but I am a huge fan of KnownHost. Currently have a dedi and vps with them and have nearly 100% uptime for almost 1 year on both. Servers are quick and support is awesome.

    You could start with a vps and upgrade to a dedi when needed and they should be able to move your site(s) for you.
