Upgrade your hosting from FatCow
Outgrown your current FatCow plan?
Is your website hosted with FatCow underperforming, or unreliable, or you're just sick of the service you're (not) receiving?
If so, do a quick check of your site's visitor numbers: 5,000 unique visitors per month is the magic figure. If you're seeing fewer people than this, your problem lies either with an underpowered shared plan (in which case, choose a better one), or a technical issue due to something like a bad WordPress plugin - if you're using WordPress, that is - or some other bad code lying somewhere down the line.
From the other side, if your site is regularly getting more users than this, start looking at a Virtual Private Server (VPS) . You should also look at Dedicated servers (managed or unmanaged - the question being who fixes problems when things go wrong. Managed is the hosting company, unmanaged is on you)
If you use WordPress, do check one of FatCow's WordPress plans as you could see large improvements by switching to a WordPress-optimized plans instead of setting everything up on your own on a standard shared hosting plan. If you've already tried this, or been told by your host that it won't make any difference, well, VPS or Dedicated time it is!
