I want to expand my online business but I don't have that kind opportunity when I work with shared web hosting.

Really it comes down to daily visitors, how many visits? What type of sites they are, IE a streaming site will take more than a static HTML site.

I agree with Michael ... What type of website these are .. a statis website with html or PHP or wordpress , Joomla .... again although you purchased a VPS it has to be tuned , tweaked and optimized in order to make sure that all the resources are being properly used.

If these 30 sites are low to medium traffic, a reseller account or low - mid tier VPS will serve your 30 sites without issue.
It depends on how much traffic these sites use and what workload they are going to put on the server, for example a heavy CMS based site with many visitors will use a lot more resources than a static HTML site.

Hey Michael and sh-admin, they have less traffic, just 250 to 600 visitors per day but they installed many plugins on web system. some are custom sites and some are worpdress sites, I bought themes from themeforest, the themes are pretty weight when loading because they have many effects.

30 WordPress websites with plugins and such with ~200visit per site daily sound like >4-6GB of ram including the Control Panel

30 Wordpress websites ... with plugins. You will need a fab VPS with nearly 8 GB RAM .. the reason I am suggesting 8 Gb RAM is to avoid lag issues and loading issues of the plugins ... and as I have said already , you will need to tune up , tweak the VPS in order to serve the Wordpress websites.. I will also suggest to have Cpanel in order to administrate the sites independently and easily.

I agree. If you don´t want to start loosing visitors due to loading issues, you better go for a VPS or dedicated server.

You can also have the wordpress configured as multisite to avoid having cpanel for the sites management.

It's roughly 18K visitors a day on 30 domains and I would assume you need management to setup nginx and optimize the VPS?

The space really depend on those website, do you store a lot of images? Is 1GB per account enough?

I would go with a managed cPanel VPS, with 2GB RAM, at least 1 Core and 40/50GB of HDD.

Ask your host to install NginX and MariaDB, 40/50Gb should covers backup, control panel and website files.

Reverse proxy or Varnish and 8+GBs of RAM. The more the merrier. lsapi, nginx, litespeed or ruid_2 + opcache preferrered.

I thought to that and it needs at least 8GB RAM to run smoomlty

Are you sure it can run with 2GB of RAM with NginX web server for 30 sites?
If yes I would to buy this VPS package and optimize the VPS as you recommended.

If they are not very active you might be able to get away with that.

These specifications of a web server should be enough for your 30 websites. 4 GB RAM, 2 Core Processor, 150 GB SSD Disk Space with 5 TB Transfer space.

If the websites you are going to host is large with lots of plugins involved, go for a upgrade with 8 gb of ram and 4 core processor.
