I have about 30 sites on my bluehost account but need to upgrade

    Doesn't look like bluehost really has any other options besides the one standard account. Where would be the best place to transfer my sites to to be able to easily continue to add more sites without slowing down?

    Thanks!

    Take a look at stablehost, you pay abit more, but they're shared hosting is really great.

    If you're hosting 30 sites on a shared hosting account, you may want to consider upgrading to a VPS to keep everything running well, or even spread your sites across 5-10 shared hosting accounts with different hosting just to get a bit of diversity (I've seen quite a few threads the past few days about people with 20-30 sites on a single Hostgator account getting all of their sites slapped really hard due to various issues and updates this week.)

    I know Spry has some cheaper VPS accounts, and there are a ton of hosting companies that offer really cheap discounts on accounts for the first 1-3 years so you can get multiple accounts without breaking the bank. Trying to run too many websites on any shared hosting will eventually get you a nasty letter from the hosting company for using "excessive resources" or "causing adverse affects to other sites hosted on the server". Keep in mind, even though a company promises "unlimited" space, if you read the fine print it's normally not actually unlimited.

    I have to agree with moving to a vps, it is not really that much more money but it is much better than a shared hosting from both a resources and a security standpoint.

    I use knownhost and their support and uptime is very good. You can start with a smaller plan and very easily move up to larger ones as needed. I have 2 vps and 2 dedi accounts with them.

    just move to VPS so you can add more domain, and if you out of ram just need to upgrade memory.
