Prepping for leaving Bluehost — April / May timeframe – How to assess target needs?

Been with Bluehost for 10+ years and it’s had its ups and downs, but when it is on a downward spin it is really downward. In general when I’ve contacted support they’ve been helpful, and performance is “OK”, but feel that it could be better. Our current 3-year hosting contract is up in June and will autorenew in May, so looking to assess where to go.

Here is what I’ve pulled out of our current setup via cPanel:

* **What is your monthly budget?** 20 – 30 / month (including backups)
* **Where are you/your users located?** US
* **What kind of site are you hosting -** 5 domains hosted, all wordpress self setup via one-button install – Family domain, and a collection of small businesses that sell online (via Woocommerce / WordPress). I manage the family domain for things like email forwarding as well as the wordpress installs / updates as well. Some FTP on occasion.
* **Do you have a monthly traffic volume?** Bandwidth – looks like peaking around 14GB / month
* Disk space – 40 GB total space
* Backups – while the Bluehost plan (Business Pro) provides backups, we are also paying $100/year for CodeGuard premium to enable up to 10GB of backups (currently using about 8GB for core WP backups)

In looking at the sidebar, I’m thinking Knownhost’s Premium Shared plan. Anybody else I should add to the short list?

Also curious about how the migration process works, Knownhost offers migration assistance and will plan on using something like when the time comes.

One thing I’m trying to figure out is how to know if things like “4GB RAM” are enough for what we are hosting. Occasionally (1 – 2 times / year), I’ll get a spate of “ran out of resources” errors while editing pages in WordPress and then the errors will disappear. Haven’t been able to pin down the culprit.

Comments / inputs appreciated.
