    TSOHost you might be using Cpanel hosting, are you looking for dedicated or shared hosting? Other things are quit possible including migration. Most of the host provide 30 days moneyback, best would be shortlist few host, check there reviews, try to contact support to get the anwers you are willing to get. Once you are satisfied you can select the best option that fits your requirement.

    In contrast I would strongly recommend the OP does not run their production websites on unmanaged servers unless they:
    • have experience in web server administration;
    • are comfortable setting up suitable monitoring;
    • are happy to respond to potential issues 24/7/365;
    • are comfortable creating and testing suitable backup procedures; and
    • are willing to spend more time on their hosting set up, rather than working on their core business.
    To name just a few important differences between a managed and unmanaged service.

    If shared hosting is not good enough (and there are fair reasons to avoid shared hosting) then I would recommend a fully managed server from a managed service provider.

    If you are to use VPS, I can also recommend you IOZOOM. Cheap VPS starting at $5 for high availability and automatic failover. Ranked one of the best cloud SSD VPS hosting provider.

    • Bluehost
    • DreamHost
    • Kinsta
    • WP Engine

    Hi, we use Simple Servers for main sites and Vultr for custom play projects. Simple Servers customer support and uptime is very good IMHO.

    Recently we have been recommended both: Green Geeks and Stable Host (we have not used them ourselves).

    Bluehost I am also aware of as it appears to come up on lots of blogs relating to WordPress.

    If you need to host a static website (I use it for affiliate pages) - it's nothing better than AWS. You can host all your 10 domains for $1/year or something. But you can host Wordpress also, but it will cost more.

    AWS can make even the simplest tasks complicated to perform, it's a whole new platform to learn. A better solution if you only want to host static websites and need something very low cost is Netlify. Uses AWS infrastructure, costs nothing and can be as simple as dragging and dropping your website onto the Netlify tab in your browser.
