    I am using adsense ads that could be the issue.

    But I had words regarding the same, they said my website is taking to much load on CPU that's why the website is getting down. I move from 4 core CPU to 8 core and saw minimum low times.

    Are you a programmer? Maybe there is some optimization that can be done on the code to be optimized. Is it for your instagram photo website? It's not about the number of posts or the number of visitors. This is a very small number of posts and visitors. It's because of the "software(?)" that is running on your site I guess and maybe that can be optimized or that process can be run on a different server dedicated just for that process. Just some ideas I am thinking about.

    But for sure the number of posts and the number of visitors is considered very small for the hosting plan you have.

    I have a site which gets like 15k-17k visits/day hosted on 20$ VPS and generates 90k-100k views/day. It mostly depends on the configuration of your backend.
    Let me explain,
    1) If you are hosting on hostgator you are using Cpanel, which is really a bloat & IMO any site getting 5k visits/day shouldn't be using one.
    2) I can say with 100% surity that hostgator is using Apache as webserver on your website which is inferior to Nginx or litespeed.
    3) Hostgator is using Mysql instead of more faster & understood version of Mysql i.e, MariaDB.
    4) The version of PHP that hostgator uses is really outdated, it probably is 7.0 while the current is 7.3

    So at the end, hardware is not the whole picture but it is just a part which comes into play of performance of your website.

    No I am not a programmer, but I asked for the help from Hostgator and they suggested the same. And whenever I open a ticket, I get the reply after 24 hours of any error (when i update them). No its not the Instagram Photo website. I am using WordPress for that website.

    Do you suggest me to go with DigitalOcean? Also, do they support refund. Like if I get the same issue, I can ask for the refund?

    Digital ocean does not provide refund as far as I can remember but you can use this to get 50$ credit to host.(Disclaimer: I am not affiliated to this link)
    Also, how much are you paying hostgator for your current "cloud" server ?

    You can get much better performance for that, you can even buy a dedicated server with 30$ from some resellers of online.net or Kimsufi(OVH)

    i disagree with your point that cpanel is bloat. cPanel is the best control panel for hosting industry so far.
    If you dont know how to tune apache nginx or litespeed you can do nothing even if you own everything.
    i am not supporter of hostgator as i run my own hosting.
    most of the hosting companies are using cloudlinux with cPanel + litespeed or nginx and apache.
    Mariadb is also used in almost all hosting companies now a days. same for php you are free to choose between 54 to 73

    Yeah, I totally understand where you are coming from, But if you do know a little bit of command line, do you really need cpanel ?
    Additionally, I outed Cpanel as a "Bloat" because you know that it will have to run its own processes (cronjobs, database GUI, updaters to keep all the scripts up-to date,etc.) in the background which will definitely consume unnecessary Ram maybe more Swap.
    PS: Cpanel changed their pricing structure recently,

    Personally to me, this is like the worst price hike in the history of hosting panels & is directly aimed to cashout small business hosting providers.

    for single person usage i will also not recommend cPanel you can however use centos control panel.
    not everyone is familiar with command line.
    yes i agree with you on price issue, but i buy cPanel licenses for clients from buycpanel they are still cheap.

    Yeah me too. It's good for business & shared hosting providers.

    Totally, buycpanel is indeed a blessing.
