    Recently I have learnt that speed of the site matters too, and seeing how my fatcow website ws so slow.. I have learnt. So what type of hosting should I go for?

    I plan to start 10 websites niche oriented. Should I go for cloud, share, vps or what? Which company do you suggest?

    A well optimised shared hosting will be fine to start with, providing it is optimised for your CMS. Once the sites begin to build traffic, plugins, etc, you may find it worth upgrading to a VPS, budget permitting.

    The cloud is also another option. Where are you based? Also, you could consider a CDN to speed up your static content when loading pages.

    Shared hosting is fine at first. Once you start getting a lot traffic to your site on a daily basis to the point where it starts to slow down you should then move it to a VPS. When you start bogging down the VPS then you should move onto a dedicated server.

    If you can afford it from the beginning, dedicated. It'll save you migration headaches later on.

    If you're serious about business but a bit limited on budget, vps/cloud. It'll run decently quick but with 10 sites if you start getting heavy traffic be prepared to migrate.

    If you're cheap and just don't give a f***, shared. You're currently using shared with fatcow. Nuff' said.

    Edit: Company depends on what sort of software you're running. If you use WordPress you should probably get a host that knows WordPress. If you're running something that requires Windows hosting then obviously every Linux host is out the running. If you know what you're doing, you could always colo a server. You won't get any support more than a simple restart but you do control more.

    Shared hosting will do fine for now, but once you get a good amount of traffic then you have to get a vps as Kinlee said. :) I am using hostthename and they work pretty good for me. iPage also has some ongoing offer about unlimited domains and unlimited traffic. You should check them out. :)
