So just to set the scene - I have a website which receives around 15,000 hits / 60,000+ page views a day. It is a WordPress site which uses a lot of imagery, news posts, etc.
Bandwidth is around 500GB a month.
So my current server is self-managed through WebNX with the following statics @ $180 / month:
Intel Xeon e3 1230, 8gb ram, 120gb ssd, 5TB, 100mbps port, /29, cPanel
The site is about to outgrow the hard drive (85% full) so I thought rather than upgrading this piece, it may be more worthwhile to get a better server overall and possibly save some money if I am over-paying on this? I don't even mind paying a little extra if the increase in performance is justified.
I was also thinking of changing provider, as although WebNX is unmanaged, I find some of their responses less than helpful.
The new server (if a better option) would need to have cPanel (I'm a n00b) and the host would preferably be managed, although that's not a must-have if there is a reputation of reliability, quality, etc.
Thank you so much!
