I have a VPS with the following specs:
  • 2 CPUs
  • 4GM Ram
  • 10MBPS bandwidth
  • 60GB HD
I'm have WHM installed from which I manage all the cPanel accounts.
99% of the sites are common Joomla sites, for small businesses, that doesn't consume too much resources.
Lately, the websites loading time got longer and I wonder if the reason is that I have more than 150 (regular Joomla) sites on the server.

Here is some info from the WHM system:

System Item Details Status
Server Load 0.226074 (2 CPUs)
Memory Used 72.12% (2,821,316 of 3,912,212)
Swap Used 12.65% (662,960 of 5,241,848)

Disk Information
Device Mount Point Usage
/***/***/*** 3% (141,416 of 5,159,552)
/***/***/*** 61% (17,923,928 of 30,962,684)
/***/***/*** home 78% (22,794,800 of 30,962,684)

(the asterixes are folders)

My hosting company recommended that I would open another server instead of upgrading the current one. Is that the best solution?

It doesn't look like you're maxing out resources, but it would be difficult for any of us to help you without having examined the server. There could be a number of things causing your sites to load slowly - anything from the content of the sites themselves, Apache settings, or the physical server. So I can't really make a recommendation based on the information provided.
