Hopefully someone can help me figure out if this is possible.
I have a WordPress 3.0.1 Multisite installed on my hosting account with Host Gator on a shared server. Some of the sites within that install/network get decent traffic (4 sites getting about 1,000 unique visitors each day), one of the sites on occasion gets a big bump in traffic up to 6000-8000 in a single day.
This has caused HG to suspend my entire blogging network because at times my account takes up more than 25% of the server CPU. It has happened twice in the past 3 weeks now. I have made some changes to decrease the server load which has remedied the problem for now.
I don't think it is worth moving to a VPS or Dedicated server at this time because they are a lot more expensive, offer less bandwidth, and I just don't feel traffic supports that big a move.
What I want to do is set up a second account with HG and move three or four of the blog sites to that account, but still have them all as part of the main network.
Is there a way I can do this without causing a problem or losing any posts and info? Would all the global tags still work the same way?
Thanks for any help you can give me.
