I would definitely quit. I know it may take lots of efforts may be some downtime to move out, but it is definitely worth it. I would mind keeping a backup server on such a host, but definitely not the mail business servers.

It would be better to look for another server.The main thing that you must focus on is efficency so that you are happy.

As always it's a matter of perspective.
It depends on so many things.
For example if the cheap server do the job, why change ?
Changing server also means adapt code and eventually face problems.
On the other hand changing hardware and getting more ressouces is a good thing.
If you have the time the best is to wait for a good offer, schedule a migration, which means buy the new server, deploy websites on it and test them.
Then migrate your websites / services.

Everything is replaceable, even me!

If I decide to only work 2 hours a day, and I'm no longer able to keep up with the tasks delegated, I'll be replaced.

On the other hand, if I can get all the work done in the 2 hour time frame, then more power to me!

If you're not happy with performance for any reason, then you need to evaluate your options. If that means paying more, or using a different center, then that's the options you have. Of course, it could always be bad programming too

There's no point of buying any thing cheaper if it doesn't work efficiently. I will prefer you not to go for cheap servers, after all efficiency is all that matters after buying it.
Spend well once and enjoy later.

If a cheap server is giving you problems, exactly how much more will it cost you to migrate to a better solution? You probably don't have to go for a top-of-the-line solution, so for just a few more bucks a month you can get flawless performance, without having to break your budget.

So, if your project is important to you, why tolerate? If its not that important, why care about performance issues?

There are plenty of uses for a 'non efficient' server. Backup storage, VPN. I wouldn't get rid of it, but definitely repurpose it if it's not running as smoothly as you want.

Then again, you should look at why it's not running smoothly. There's probably underlying issues.

If you only had a couple of accounts you may be tempted to stay, but then that would have an impact on you trying to get more clients.

I agree with everyone else. Efficiency is a MUST with web hosting, whether it's for your site or for someone else's website(s). You can't sacrifice efficiency. If you can't afford a 'dedicated server' then purchase a VPS for the time being and start your web hosting company there. This way, you have full control over everything.

Don't sacrifice efficiency for yourself or for others. It's a lose, lose situation and bad business. Good luck!

HECK NO! Each frustrated customer is a bad word of mouth review for what they are offering. Why in the world would you want to continue?

What does it mean "Not so efficient"? If server's performance is enough to do his tasks well, I'll keep it. Otherwise, I'll change it.

You can always find another company that offers affordable hosting plans. There’s no need to stick to a hosting provider you’re not satisfied with. That’s why it is a good option to subscribe for monthly packages at first – you’ll try the hosting provider services for a few months and if there’s something that you don’t like about them – you’ll quit and find another provider. But if you are satisfied with their services – you may purchase an annual plan and get a discount (if the company offers such).
