The last time I read HG's TOS for their baby plan it was pretty restricted. They do have other plans that might do the job for you.

I try to not make specific recommendations.

These are the things I would look for in the fine print of any host's TOS:
the max MySQL connections,
the cpu usage allowed,
file count limits,
intentionally vague general catch all restrictions.

First you must accept that there are no true unlimited anything plans, everything is finite. Then you have to figure out where they plan to nail you when you use about half what they promised. Then you realize that the reason quality shared shared hosting costs more is because they don't play those games. Heck you might even be able to use what you pay for.

Yes, I have also faced the same problem but that was not Hostgator. It was dollar2host.

To OP

The best way is to contact the web hosting provider you are currently hosting with, they should be able to tell you what plan is good for your all the websites.

If you are facing CPU usage issue with current host, you are very likely to face the same in Hostgator as well. All shared hosts are going to be restrictive about the CPU usage on a server shared by 100s of users.

In most cases, if you have a CPU problem, an entry/mid level VPS is not going to be enough. You might actually need a dedicated server.

I have a rule to move forward as soon as I experience any performance troubles. Think it should be considered here as well. The more so because it is HG.

Getting 10% of a modern server at $10 is not a fair expectation, whether the host is Hostgator or some other one.

I would go for a powerful VPS, or better yet, for a dedicated server. If you have the traffic, you should monetize it, in which case chances are you could afford good hosting and have something extra left for a soda or a beer from time to time.

I'm not sure about Host Gator's baby plan, but the hosting accounts I've seen with them have automatic alerts that go out when you are approaching your bandwidth limits. I was able to set the alert to go out at the point of my choosing. In my case, I set the system up to send alerts when the bandwidth usage reaches 80% of the limit. I would then have the opportunity to call and upgrade my account if needed.

When it comes to CPU usage, most hosts have a similar policy on shared hosting and suspend the website that uses abnormal amount of CPU resources.
So I think switching to Hostgator will not make any difference, they may not suspend the account but there always be a risk.

It's simple. If you want adult sized portions, you can't be ordering off the kid's menu.
