    Some of my websites are loading slow, the hosting is from a not very popular company. So should i buy a dedicated server, a reseller or what?

    a) you gotta check the page speed first. it depends on how fast your pages load. also, mind your own internet connection as a factor.
    b) dedicated servers are for huge sites, resellers is for reselling small portions of the account (duh).
    c) if your internet connection is fast, your page is light (100-150 kb maximum), i suggest moving to another hosting service. i suggest WebHostingPad since they are cheap as hell, giving you a cPanel and google+facebook coupons.

    always use trusted and good hosting companies, not only the cheapest or the nearest.

    Great suggestions above. Also, was it always running slow or did it just happen recently? I would try switching to a new hosting company if it is a consistent problem.

    Well it was always the same, and i saw that they are offering radio hosting service or something like that which i sometimes think that is causing this problem on the websites that are hosted on that hosting.

    Thanks for your suggestions.

    If it is built using Wordpress, try the W3TotalCache plugin... if not, ignore this.

    Run a check on your pageload speed against Google Page Speed and see what your score is out of 100.

    If it's below 75ish, act on the advice given by Google Page Speed to minimize the amount your page has to load (e.g. image compression, code minifying etc).

    If you're on shared hosting, you can try a VPS... if not then a dedicated server may be the best option. The porlbme with shared hosting is that like the name states, it is shared so if you have another client in there that is a resource hog, you will suffer.

    It also depends on the theme that you are running. I have found that some themes just load slow and if you have a lot of plugins that will slow things down too.
