I am investigating upgrading to a new plan priced at $50 per month which I think can be covered by donations I receive.
for less than 50$ per month there are lots of other good hosting solution. I looked up Lunarpages cloud hosting plan and they are pretty expensive compared to the competition.
Also their customer service is less than stellar.
I am using Hostinger(domain and email) for my own personal domain. and their customer service is pretty good. Also they have really amazing sales.
To move to dedicated hosting would cost $100+ per month so its quite a lot.
Also moving to a different host isnt just a case of choosing another - there is the actual migration that would need to be planned for and executed, with the associated risks of things going wrong.
I don't think dedicated server is needed. I would suggest moving to different hosting provider though.
We can test out the website move and if everything goes well we can migrate the data then. It will take some planning but it might be worth it.
Lunarpage's plans looks ridiculously expensive. The startup plan(cloud hosting) of hostinger is 25$(without any discount) which provide the same cpu core and more ram than lunarpages
