Drupal on GoDaddy is TOO SLOW

After setting up Drupal on GoDaddy, I've found that this site is just WAY TOO SLOW with Drupal+GoDaddy. It's annoyingly slow. Previously, I just had a simple static site and it was fast, but that's not too surprising for a static site. I have just contacted GoDaddy about this and my guess is that I won't get any resolution. I looked at this article about the problem, and it talks about shared hosting on GoDaddy in general being slow. I did the reverse ip lookup like the article mentions and see that there are over 2000 websites on the same server as kristen.org, so I guess it's no surprise that my site is slow. It's a shame because I don't want to switch over to a new hosting company, but it's either that or perhaps upgrading to a more expensive non-shared account which I don't really want to do. If anyone has suggestions for low-cost sites that allow running Drupal, please let me know. I guess if I'm going to switch, then a provider that has a Linux shell account as part of the package would be very cool.

GoDaddy

Not only is it slow, the support is also TERRIBLE, they make it almost impossible to talk to a real person. I like webhost4life.com.

I've had Drupal on

I've had Drupal on web-host-service.org and Drupal performance has been...meh. I get quite a few 500 and 404 (even when it's there) errors.

000webhost

I'm using Hosting24 free version (000webhost) and it's pretty cool. So I guess the paid plan is even better. My Drupal site is not too slow and the only problem I get is DB server overload.

I'm having very acceptable

I'm having very acceptable performance with drupal at hostmonster.com. I don't think you can pay month by month with them though, if you're looking for that feature.
