Page Load Speed, Hostgator and Wordpress
I have been having some issues with Wordpress blogs hosted on Hostgator for a few months now. There seems to be some kind of intermittent problem with the server but tech support say the server is fine and not overloaded.

When I test my sites sometimes I see 2-3s load times, on other days I see 30s+ before the server even delivers first byte.

Here is a recent ten second example of what I am talking about:

I am still on shared hosting with HG. Am I expecting too much by wanting a consistent 2-3s page load time? Some time ago I was receiving this level of performance, but over recent months the server seems to be getting slower and slower.

I would happily upgrade to a VPS if I thought it would solve the problem, but advice in that regard is contradictory. Some people say that a low level VPS is less powerful than what I receive on shared hosting so page load speeds might be even slower. This seems counter-intuitive as you obviously pay a lot more for VPS than a shared account.

I hope someone here can help me achieve what I used to think was a very simple goal (2-3s page load speeds).

I am running W3 Total Cache on this blog, but no CDN. APC is greyed out, so I assume that this is not enabled on shared hosting.
