HostTheName review + Need your advice on choosing a better host for low traffic blogs

Big on Hosting. Unlimited Space & Unlimited Bandwidth

I’m using a shared hosting plan on for 2 years. Page load time has been very slow for more than a year now. The blogs run on WordPress and get about 50 uniques/day. Every time I contact the tech support about my blogs loading for 10 seconds or more, I’ve been told that the plugins are causing it. Then I disable all plugins and load time decreases with just 1 second. The tech support then replies that I need to contact my web developer because there is nothing wrong on their end.
This scenario has been repeating over and over again for the past 2 years.

Recently, hostthename moved my account to a new hardware platform without letting me know prior to that. After the transfer, everything got even worse. Along with other new technical issues, now the CPU usage is near or at 100% every time someone loads a single page on any of my blogs. I had a developer looking into the issue, but he didn’t find anything wrong. The tech support says that there is nothing wrong with their server, and that I should either switch to their $55/mo VPS plan or contact my web developer to limit the usage of resources.

I’m in a desperate need to find another hosting provider. I’m really tired of spending more time dealing with hosting issues than spending on developing the blogs.

Any advises are greatly appreciated.
